Well Happy Just agreed the sale for my new 156 (thank god!)

I managed to come accross an Irish V6. It's a 99 56000 miles on it. Cam belts done. It's teh dark metalic green with Tan leather . Needs a bit of TLC in the bodywork dept on one side and the engine bay needs a bit of a tidy but all in all is mechanically sound (it was checked out properly this time by a friend. Not a tap of rust! )


It needs the black clocks and carbon dash but i think that will come from the 156 of doom. The missus wants to kill me and i am pretty sure she will one day she will but i promised her would have people banging my door down for bits from the other 156.


I'll be picking her up in two weeks. I just have to get a few bob together.

Good stuff. Them v6s are rare as hens teeth, if I was you Id hide that rusty one away somewhere, chances are you'll need some parts off it over the coming years.

Not really Mark. I had one lad looking to swap for a chickichento I have had a lot of interest in the interior. There is a lad taking it on saturday and giving me a cloth one plus a few quid.

I think i will Paddy. They are rare over here alright. i have the space on the drive to leave it there and i need a few bits for the new one anyway.

I had it up on the ramp. The guy i am guying it off has had it in storage. He collects cars so it is absilutely mint underneath. (see what i did there?)

Yeah . I think it is probably the wisest choice in the longrun. I will need parts straight away and no doubt i will need a few in future.

Im jealous, I think if one was around when I was looking a month ago, I might have snapped it up. Very rare to find an Irish V6.

Get pics up ASAP.

It was by pure fluke that i found it tbh. I called a guy to get an exhaust for my one and he said he knew of a good one going so i jumped in it.

I'm picking it up the week after paddies day.

I'm in Bray. I have one sitting on the drive if you want to come out and have a look / listen you are more than welcome. I can take you out for a short spin (it's on uk plates so i don;t want to risk getting it taken from me).

You would say that!

Lovely! Im in Bray as well. Will send you a pm and try to drop out. The sound of a V6 is music to my hears (I imagine, having never actually heard one). Would be happy to hear it just on the driveway, no need to risk it.

We could have another Bray mini meet, it would be great to see a 164!

I'd be on for it, although mines a 156, not a 164! I must change that.

Bray Retail park, outside DID is quiet enough.
