You don't want it, the car appears to have one or two 'mystery issues' and any car fitted with Lexus style aftermarket lights is to be avoided imo as it says everything you need to know about the previous owner, the maintenance that they inflicted on the car and that it will manifest itself very soon via the medium of 'the inevitable'.

However: That dashboard = fix car.

If you get a feel for these cars you'll never stop spending money on it, believe me.

 

If your hearts not in it then get the money back, someone else would happily take it on.

 

Sleep on it, as I always say.

As it is or with an mot ? I am still thinking about it at the moment. The interior is stripped out to try and dry it out a bit. I suspect the leak is coming from the boot now, probably the bloody awful lexarse lights. The auction for a possible spares car ends tomorrow afternoon so we will see what happens. I just don't want to start spending too much on it as at the moment it doesn't owe me a lot and I would rather lose a couple of hundred on it than 4 or 5

If you're not going to run it, sell it as is to someone who does want it - there's no sense setting out to lose money on it now it's got the attention of enthusiasts who can, and will, do the work to make it a usable car. It's a bargain for someone who wants to use it long term.

If it's a known quantity, like something that's failed the test on something specific like a track rod end or whatever, then yes. What you don't want is something with a series of intermittent faults that you cannot conclusively say for certain what the cause is. It might have got its fans the 75 - me included, but when it comes to moving it on it will be a sod to shift. If it had say 8 months test on it and it had a few faults not affecting its usability if say go for it, worst case you would have 8 months motoring for very little.

Are the brakes actually bad enough to fail the test, they can be fucking awful but still pass the test, similar for the spring, where's it broke?

It is very tempting but I would prefer something with an MOT. If it was in London/Essex and so on I wouldn't be too bothered as I could get it to the barn easily.

 

It isn't that pricey to get the bits sorted, they are not difficult to do. The leak is pretty likely to be the rear shite lights but as said previously they have value. A used set is a cheap fix. 

 

If you like the car otherwise then do it and you will still have a cheap MG in all honesty. If you get bored then roffle it on here.

If I was in that position - faced with fixing a car I had no interest in keeping & with the prospect of making £0 profit when I came to sell - I'd get rid of it as is/bridge it.

 

I like those, though, so I'd probably fix it!

Toss lights aside, it looks like a nice example. They are known fof leaking through the rear light seals so that could well be the source of the leak.

 

Other than that and the impact sensors, it is consumable stuff that's needed - not my dosh though! I'd have thought you'd see £5-800 at the very least if fixed.

Looks like this is going to turn into a money pit as I missed out on a spares car off ebay and upon stripping the rear brakes both back plates are rotten. So that is an extra 50 quid on the costs.

I am happy to help you try to move it on via the 75/ZT forum (of which I am a member so can advertise chod)

there are few members on the 75/ZT club forum who are breaking up cars, they could be a cheap source of spares since you missed out on your own scrapper?

I know I should just flog it off as it is but I know what is going to happen here I will end up sorting the bloody thing properly. I would feel guilty selling it as it is, hopefully I have found someone breaking one who wants 65 quid for the whole rear brake set up and a spring so if it is any good that would be a start. He is also chucking in 1 rear light as the other has cracked and been repaired with filler.

brake bit, a spring and a light cluster for £65 sounds like pretty good value.

Off to look at another 75 this morning as a possible doner car. I would like to replace the carpets as they really do hold the water in. Hopefully I can get it sorted so I can flog it for about 600 with a bit of wiggle room to cover my costs

This bugger has lived on the north Devon coast for most of it's life and has a lot of surface rust so will need a good dose of waxoyl over the rear suspension.

Well that has really helped things I have bought a 2.0 Rover 75 now trouble is after driving it home 80 odd miles it really has very little wrong with it. The previous owner said it overheated once and he changed the cap but his garage told him it had a fault on the cooling fan. All I can find wrong is the air bag light on and a slight clonk on the lower engine mounting. Anyone want to give me a profit on it at £300 mot'ed till April as it would be a right shame to pull it apart. Pictures on monday as I haven't got my camera but it is a 75 club with 113000 miles no history. It is that pale blue mettalic and very tidy a scratch on one rear door and a scuff on the front bumper

Panhard - You can test the fan on these easy enough.

 

When the engine is cold start the engine and press the demist button, then walk round the front of the car and peer through the grill and see if the fan is spinning. By doing this you should get the low speed fan kicking in.

 

Lower front engine mounts on these are about 65 sovs, I had mine replaced recently.

 

What year is the car? I am guessing 2000/2001 ?

It is a V reg 99 I think. I had it stuck in traffic on the way back and not a hint of overheating and the owner said he left it ticking over for an hour this morning to check it before I picked it up.
