I bought this because I knew it was going to end up sitting for years and never make it back on to the road. To be perfectly honest, it's not really my cup of tea but I decided to re-commission it and move it on. Ideal for anyone wanting something simple to work on and they now seem to be cool, especially in this fetching shade of terracotta brown and "contrasting" beige interior. Groovy.
NOW WITH FULL YEARS MOT and a wee price drop.
Since I bought it I have done the following :
Service - plugs, rotor arm, distributor cap, air filter, oil filter and oil change.
New wiper blades
13" RS 7 spokes with 185/60 tyres. Not new but all good tyres. Original 4.5" steel wheels will come with the car as well.
The car has been off the road for a number of years and stored either in a covered car port or, previously, in a dry garage.
The pictures show the condition of the car as well as possible. There are a few scuffs, a little dent on the bonnet and surface rust in the areas shown.
The interior is fresh and doesn't smell of smoke or dogs or damp. Quite a nice place to be to be fair. The 1.1 Valencia engine pulls nicely and doesn't make any disconcerting noises at all. OK, you are really going to have to make an effort if you want to upset speed cameras but that's not the point of this car. Nice.
I am in no way responsible for the aftermarket back box on the car but it doesn't look TOO offensive and doesn't make the car sound stupid either so it's staying.
The car will have a new years MOT when it is sold. Currently at the testing station and due to be tested on Monday. Don't expect any problems but and advisories or failures will be shown to the buyer.
