WHERE TO BUY ONE

Fast Ford - - Buyer’s Guide Mondeo St220 -

De­spite gain­ing widespread recog­ni­tion as an ef­fort­lessly en­joy­able ex­ec­u­tive ex­press, ST220 sales were dis­ap­point­ing. Added to the fact that the ear­li­est cars are now 15 years old, there are rapidly- de­creas­ing ex­am­ples avail­able sec­ond-hand.

At the low­est end of the mar­ket you’ll find tatty ST220s on eBay, so­cial media and such like. Some are with pri­vate sell­ers, while traders of­ten of­fer trou­ble­some Mon­deos as ‘spares or re­pairs’ to avoid war­ranty come­backs.

All ST220s are too old to be found at deal­er­ships but de­cent backstreet deal­ers are gen­er­ally home to the bet­ter ex­am­ples. Some spe­cial­ist traders are be­gin­ning to show an in­ter­est in mint, low-mileage ma­chines.

Don’t for­get to check out ST fo­rums, too, for en­thu­si­ast own­ers think­ing of sell­ing up.
