The Ford Orion 1600 E

The Ford Orion 'E' was built at Halewood as 1.6i Orion’s, and from there shipped in batches to the Tickford site in Bedworth for their interior transformation. The Orion was originally available in only two colours Raven, a blue- black metallic and Mercury Grey. Later a small number became available in Diamond White. Every car was trimmed in soft Shadow Grey leather, and came with front sports seats specially developed for the model from those of the Escort XR3i. The standard steering wheel was treated to a leather rim, and the gear lever knob and gaiter were likewise leather. A fillet of American Cherry wood veneer was placed on the fascia ahead of the front passenger seat, and matching wood veneer capping’s were placed on each door trim panel to complete the 'mini limousine' effect. The original build schedule was for 1,500 cars being built between October 1988 and July 1989, but this was not quite reached. Between October 1988 and February 1989 the first 1,000 were produced, but a number of these had to be recalled to rectify a paint problem caused by "fall-out" from a nearby factory, which in turn led to a hiatus in production. The remaining 498 cars were built in June and July 1989. Nobody knows at present how many of these cars have survived. As with any limited run car, the prices demanded for the Orion 1600 'E' will always tend to exceed those of the 1.6i Ghia, due mainly to their rarity value.
