Ford Fiesta Mk1 Base (1977-80)

The entry model of the Ford Fiesta range was initially just badged as 'Fiesta'. These base models were offered with two differing 950cc engine options (producing 40PS and 45PS respectively) coupled to a 4 speed box. Weighing in at just 700kg, these sparsely specced cars were 14kg lighter than the next model up and 71kg lighter than a Ghia spec. Later in production the Base model was scrapped in favour of the 'Popular' name.
