 134-Mile 2002 Ford Focus Appears Again, This Time For Auction

  • This 2002 Ford Focus has only 134 miles on the odometer, having been kept in storage for most of its life.
  • The car was originally delivered to a Montana dealer that went out of business in the mid-2000s.
  • Driving the car is a 2.0-liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder paired to a five speed manual gearbox.

A couple of months ago, we brought you the story of a 2002 Ford Focus that had been listed for sale in Montana with just 117 miles (188 km) under its belt. At the time, it had a $20,000 asking price. Fast forward to April and that very same car has been listed up for auction on Bring a Trailer with no reserve.

This Focus LX was originally delivered to the Rygg Ford Sales dealer in Kalispell, Montana. However, the dealership went bust in the mid-2000s and the car remained in storage until it was purchased in 2022. It seems apparent the seller didn’t have any luck offloading the car through traditional means and decided the best way to sell it was through an online auction.

Since it was first listed online, the Focus has been driven 17 miles (27 km) and now has 134 miles (216 km) on the clock. Despite the low mileage and the fact the Focus has barely been driven, it has sustained hail damage to the roof, hood, and trunk lid.

The rest of the bodywork remains in good condition and the Twilight Blue Metallic paint still looks fabulous. It retains the original 14-wheel steel wheels and has been fitted with new 185/65 Hankook Kinergy ST tires.

Photos of the car’s underside and its engine bay show just how little it has been used over the past 22 years. The engine bay looks immaculate and the 2.0-liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine paired to a five-speed manual gearbox should continue to run smoothly.

The listing notes the timing belt, front crankshaft seal, battery, and fuel pump were all replaced in 2022. Buyers should be aware some rusted exhaust and suspension components may need to be replaced or, at the very least, thoroughly cleaned.

A peek at the original window sticker shows the compact sedan’s MSRP back in 2002 was $14,000. That translates to $24,305 in today’s dollars, highlighting how inflation has impacted car prices over the years.

If you’re feeling the pull of nostalgia, you can join the auction over at BaT. As of now, the highest bid sits at a modest $4,100, with just two days remaining until the auction closes on April 30th.
