Ford Fiesta Mk1 1100s and 1300s

Ford Fiesta S

Advertised with the slogan 'The Sporty Side Of Fiesta', Ford's S model was available with either a 1100 (53 BHP) or 1300cc (66 BHP) engine.

Externally the S was decorated with full length side stripes and 1100/1300 S decals, as well as a matching boot sticker. The 12” steel wheels were finished with wheel trim rings and bright wheel bolts.

Fiesta 1300S

Less than a year after the introduction of the 1100 version, Ford added the 1300S to the Fiesta line up. Powered by a 1298cc Kent engine which was essentially the same as the one fitted to the Escort Sport, the new Fiesta model became the most powerful available (at the time) with a top speed of 96.6mph and maximum torque of 68Ib ft. at 3250rpm.

The interior of the Fiesta maintained the same trim level as its smaller engined sibling, with seats trimmed in Chevron fabric and luxuries such as a rev counter, servo assisted brakes, tailgate wash/wipe and a push button radio.

Certain mechanical components on the 1300 variant were upgraded to cope with the larger capacity engine. A larger clutch and equal length drive shafts were combined with a higher final drive ratio, uprated sports suspension and larger diameter rear anti-roll bar. The 1300 also featured an upgraded braking system including rear pressure relief valves, larger capacity radiator, and exhaust system.
