Looking to buy a 156 sportwagon
So after many years of owning a classic mini i want to upgrade in terms of comfort and get something more suitable for motorway miles and generaly cheap'ish' motoring. After the standard search around the internet i think i have decided that a 156 sw would be ideal for my needs.
Basically I am looking around on ebay, pistonheads, autotrader and here for a 156 sw, ideally with at least the interior facelift with leather. Not too worried about doing a little work on the car as my mechanical skills are ok and I have the tools. Ideally i would want the 2.0 engine, but i have only heard great things about the diesels and v6's! At the moment I am budgeting £1k for the car, but am considering some of the cheaper ones about as well, coming from the mini anything will seem like luxury!
Although I prefer the look of the sportwagon?!? I could also consider an ordinary saloon, the reason I would want the sw is to potentially fit a bike in the back as I dont believe the seats fold in the saloon.
Basically if anyone has anything they know may suit please post here!
Thanks for your time, I hope i will get to know the community!
