Ford Fiesta Firefly

The Fiesta Firefly was released as a special edition in June 1986 with 2000 cars manufactured.

The car was essentially a Ghia with a different badge, fitted with a 1.1 engine and 4 speed gearbox (5 speed available at extra cost), the Fiesta Firefly was only available in Red with Shadow Olivia interior trim. It is rumoured that a few cars were fitted with a rare 1.1CVH engine instead of the usually OHV version that we are used to, however this is unsubstantiated.
