The car that Clarkson, Hammond and May all love is being fully restored! After introducing the DriveTribe Ford Mondeo ST200 to you guys last year, the end of 2020 has seen us start the full nut and bolt restoration of this rare performance saloon. In partnership with Halfords, Mike and the guys from MAD Ford Engineering will transform this ST into the finest example in the country over the next few months. In this first episode, the car gets stripped down to its bare bones...
Thank you to Halfords for sponsoring this video!

Halfords, ATS, Formula One Autocentres, kwikfit all do a winter and summer “free” safety check to get customers through the door, to find work and quote.. Speaking from experience and a former quick fit manager , support your local independent garages

Well that’s an easier way to remove an engine. Take the car out instead.

Restoration prolly costs around 25k. I'm I high or low?

I don't know what I expected, but that's certainly (going to be) a restoration.

I had the US version of this, the Contour SVT Fun, throaty and surprisingly quick. Unfortunately plagued with European build issues and wasn’t that reliable. But for some reason I still miss it.

They sold this car in the US as the Contour SVT, and I've never met somebody who had one and wasn't trying to get rid of it.

Not the best looking Mondeo, the 'nostril' variant. The model after and the current Mondeo are by far the prettiest.

I drive a 1.8TD Estate with ST200 recaro seats. Bought it for 300€ and spent another 1700 to get it where I want it. I love it more than ST200 especially at the gas station :)

As Halfords are sponsoring this renovation they should have sent one or more of their 'mechanics' along to see how to do the jobs properly. Halford service makes Kwick-Fit seem almost competent.

Livestreaming the work on the car is probably the best idea for mechanic-customer transparency I've ever heard of.

I had a SVT contour which is basically muricas version of the car and out of the 60 cars I’ve had including mustangs Camaro’s and even a manual 2jz is300 my contour was my favorite
MrFlazz99 преди месец
Clearly a labour of love because there's no way that the real cost of that restoration could be justified by the final value. Whoever gets that car in the future will be getting a bargain.

The version of this car sold in North America (Ford Contour/Mercury Mystique... or mistake) was probably the worst Ford product ever sold here. That's saying something.

I used to own one of these when they came out. It was slow, boring and did I mention slow? You would put your foot down and it would get ‘angry’. Loads of induction noise but it wouldn’t speed up lol. I sold it within about four months and bought an M3. That said, the M3 was sold within about 6 lol.
