There are lots of decent cars about for less than a grand generally. The arse has totally fallen out of the market for cars 10 years old or over with biggish engines meaning there are bargains to be had.
The issue with a 156 is the number of expensive jobs that will almost certainly need doing. You can bet that the belts will be long overdue and that a fair few suspension bits will also be needed. I reached a point with my old 156 where the work it needed (belts, wishbones, a battery, other odds and sods) easily added up to way more than it was worth.
If you really want a 156/147, have limited money, and don't mind getting your hands dirty, they aren't necessarily bad buys but if all you want is cheap wheels, there are better options.
Auto Express - six issues for a quid. Offer must end soon (and then immediately start up again).
