The current owner recently provided us with the details of this very nice Hermitage ESP which we've now added to the register. This exceptionally rare factory T-code 5.8l ESP optioned Falcon is a very early car, being a February 1980 build. We were previously under the impression that production of ESPs commenced later than this, but the Ford verification letter confirms the cars were being built this early. 

The current owner has replaced most parts in the front end, including the RHS top & bottom control arms, all ball joints and tie-rod ends etc. The mags have also been restored to original condition.

See the other Ford ESPs on Classic Register's ESP Register here, and have a look at our Ford XD ESP information guide if you're interested in these cars.
