Original Post May 10th, 2014: The Mk1 Ford Fiesta was designed by Ford of Europe and built in an assembly plant in Cologne, Germany for worldwide consumption.  The Fiesta was only sold in the USA for a few years (1978-1980) before it was replaced by the North American built Escort, an unfortunate turn of events for economy car drivers.  Find this 1980 Ford Fiesta Mk1 offered for $6,400 in Kansas City, KS via craigslist.  Tip from Jason A.

The Mk1 Fiesta is  powered by a 1.6 liter Ford Kent inline-4 equipped with a crossflow head for 66 horsepower.  Attached to a 5-speed manual gearbox and only pushing around 1700 lbs, the Fiesta will actually make for a fun daily driver, as long as you aren’t expecting measurable performance figures.
