Premium mkIII Orion

'Premium mkIII Orion' - there's a phrase you don't often hear. The booted version of the mkV Escort was basically just a slightly longer version of a car that was very much built down to a budget - little in the way of dynamism, scratchy plastics, rattly trim, generally quite nasty. It's no surprise that they've largely died out.
Thankfully, however, a handful of people have spotted the potential in them. This Orion has received 'the treatment' - a healthy dose of the lows, a well-chosen set of contemporary-yet-retro wheels - and also had that grim interior spruced up with quality components and materials. The old hound scrubs up rather well, doesn't it?
