Is anybody interested in my v6 155 wide body?
I bought her back in January with the intention of fitting a 3ltr v6 engine and generally bringing her up to standard,however it seems that my life is to busy and simply will not allow me the time i need to take on such a project.
The car has been around a bit and will prob be known to some of you,she has had 1000's spent on her over the years,sadly though it seems she has been neglected of late.
Good things are, full 156 leather,respray in metalic red (Previous owner said it was 8c but i'm not sure?),the respray didn't include the door shuts and engine bay but it does still look pretty stunning.
It has a full Hayward and Scott ss exhaust that seems in good nick and sounds nice,a bmc induction kit,working sunroof that doesn't leak and a nice alpine stereo with some sort of big amp in the boot? She also has adjustable coilovers fitted to the front,they have seen better days but are noy leaking and would prob be ok after a cleanup/service.
The previous owner told me that it has a q2 diff fitted,i have looked through the service history and it seems there was a new diff fitted under some sort of warranty/insurance claim a few years ago at a total cost of £466? I am not going to split the diff housing to check so all i will say is that if you are interested in the car then you may well be getting a nice 155 project,possibly with a q2 diff fitted for less than the list price it would cost for a q2 dif alone these days.
There is no tax or mot,the car runs but not very well. The guy i got her from said he had spent quite a lot of time and money getting her running right and all she needed to be spot on was a lambda sensor. now,he may have been telling the truth, (i'm not sure he was though,i don't think he was trying to misslead me,i just don't think he knew what he was talking about) However i haven't even had the time to change the lambda sensor to see if it sorts out the rough running and see if he was right or not.
So thats it then, she is to good to break with great bodywork and looking pretty solid rust wise. If you are interested then drop me a pm or give me a call on 07816939880,i don't want a lot for her,would just be nice to see the car go to somebody who has the time and expertise to bring her back to best.
Make me an offer and save me from ebay/breaking
