To break, or not to break.

After deciding to break the 156 for parts, heres a list of parts that are sold or not running:
MAF.
Rear window winders.
Rear seat air vents.
Rev counter/speedo surround.
Gearbox.
Battery.
Leather interior (holding for damien)

Ps. it's got a sunroof and rear high loop spoiler and it's verde arctic metallico, all body panels are pristine, and the wheels are teledials and in very good condition once they get a good cleaning!

Well you could sell it and pay for 3 months tax for the GTA .

A running 2001 is anywhere from 2100 to 2600 depending on condition . It depends really on what colour (im too lazy to look at the other thread!) there may be a few guy's here that might want the parts

She's a pale green silver colour, verde arctic metallic.
Unusual color i've only seen a odd one like mine, and it's got one of them big high loop spoilers! I love it but would never put it on the gta, abit too boy racer for me.
Someone told me the engine would be worth 500 on its own, sounds good to me.

No info centre in the older bog standard 156. Sorry mate.

Damo,
I spose seeing as it's only the seats and i dont have the door cards in leather and no armrest, i'll give em for 150, i think thats fair seeing as they cost me 300 last year.

Well, if the MAF is in good working order i'll take it,
the rear air vents (those yokes between the seats),
if the back windows are manual, i'll take the handles as well,
and the leather bit for the gear shift

Haha the handles on the rear windows? what did u do to the poor car?
the maf is perfect, it was done about 10k ago. The airvents are perfect too but the gear shift is abit worn down and shiny.

I'm in finglas, right opposite the big water tower on the M50.
she's got the 5 hole teledial alloys 16" with good bridgestone tyres on em! I think they're the best looking alloys for the 156.

I had my 2 little nieces in the car a while back, and I don't know how they managed to remove the circular thing on the handles on both windows, and cracked the rear air vents


how much for the lot ? except for the gear shift.

Tbh this breaking business is all new to me, 50 lids sound like a good deal to you? And i'll throw in the gear shift, shiny as it is.

The breaking has begun. See the first post for bits and pieces that are gone. I'm no mechanic, but i'm good with a screwdriver and a lump hammer, so will need and give a hand taking bits off it!
I'm gonna keep it just on this site for a couple of weeks before i put the rest of it on donedeal, to give ye all a chance to get what ye need.
Any questions sure send me an auld pm.

Jaysus, he was manhandling it or what ? Also, Paddy's interior looks spot on and they have the AR logo on them.

I'm in no rush to get rid, i've had it couped up long enough. You staked first claim! i'll keep the kick plates for ye but they're abit worse for wear!

Ps. Rob, When i'm breaking the "other" 1.6 i'll keep the bodykit for you alright.
