Hi all went to see this today,
Bloke who owns it now bought it off a mate a few months ago and has basically got it though the MOT.
His mate had it for a "couple" of years but it has spent a while outside on the drive before before the MOT
Inner wings from the engine bay side are original and only have a little surface rust at the "top" corner. (are they normally better than suds here??)
The battery box has been repaired (pop riveted plate)
Nearside cill has been done but only using flat plate so doesn't look original.
rear Valence is shot but you can't really see it due to the bumper.
Other than that it has had a good "make over" but the filler is lifting around the nearside rear wing, rear hatch (bottom lefthand corner) and drivers side windscreen suround.
Bottom of doors have been "stone chipped" and passengers side has rusted inside but not too bad.
Car had a slight misfire but thats probably a plug or dirty fuel (owner said it was running OK before)
Downside is that someone has been VERY LIBERAL with new underseal underneath so can't really tell whats lurking
Plus side- owner seems genuine
Wheels are 14 inch NOT TRX
Body work looks OK for probably a few years and even then only requires minor "touch up" in the places mentioned
135BHP sounds awsome
11 months test 3 months tax - take it away
Is it worth £1600? Don't think so but £1000-£1200 possible
I will be Keeping an eye on her anyway
