We all like a bit of autoshite window shopping and I have noticed that the bottom of the market seems to be creeping down in price over the last 12 months.

So here is a thread just for cars that you could buy and drive away for £200 or less.

 

My basic rules are:

Must have Tax

Must have MoT

Must be in a working condition to drive home (even if no further)

Max price £230 to allow for a genuine haggle down to £200

 

 

First up is this beauty complete with all Vauxhalls are shit credibility, possibly in its ultimate form.

It's sexy, it's glamourous, it's...

 

a grey Escort.  But it is a mere £175 with a bit of T&T and no obvious problems, other than the rather large one of being a grey 1991 Ford Escort.

A wonky windscreen washer jet or an inconveniently placed window sticker can get you an MOT fail, yet that Mondeo is safe*?

I'm not sure that safe is the right word, but it would be legal* to drive home.

You could always take a few cardboard boxes and some duct tape and fix the exposed wiring issue.

This could be pretty good with a wash and polish.  Loads of MOT and a month's tax.

Ether that is stunning or it has an extra 200,000 miles on the clock that nobody is talking about.

Given the look of it, I think it is genuine.

I see your V-reg Punto with 2 days' MOT and raise you a nearly-as-new Swift with a whole 8 days MOT plus it comes with a genuine fail sheet.

 

Puntos do seem to make up the majority of the sub-£250 T&T selection box.  I wonder why.

'We bought this car last year with a full MOT which turned out to be questionable to say the least. Don't buy a car from the person who put the MOT on it.'

I'm a bit suspicious that this one would be a right old money pit after the first week of ownership was over though.
