No it didnt come out with a mont front and ford would have never fitted it as a special order cos that not the way ford works . I feel the car is a bitsa as it dosent have passanger airbag which was standard in the late El saphires and the front isnt a standard front it a mont front

Why not contact ford and quote chassis/engine number and collect all details you can.

The date on eBay must be wrong, I mean Manufactured Sep, registered 9th Sep... a bit close, even if the ford were on the ball that month.
