    kesto: 14:36

    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!

Don’t stress about the scabby exhaust they always rust like that. Replace with stainless and move on.

I love many of the Fords. The old Ka, The Scorpio and this. I call this model the Batmobile. The headlights looks like something from a Batman movie.

The only thing Ford did wrong with that car is lack of 4WD. Given that the car would be unbeatable. Something Mitsubishi thought of.

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

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.

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

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.

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.
