I'll take some snaps and add them later, just waiting for the Taxi to take me to the station where this will be along at some point - a proper 125!

the dark side you say?

 

that late maestro certainly looks nice in the picture so i have to say that i am more than a bit jealous cos i really like a maestro.

 

and that has a velour interior will make it a very nice place to sit, and the 2 tone paint scheme is ace.

 

top buying sir, hope the collecshioning goes well...

Glad I didn't bring the dog though as 2 big escalators would've needed her carried and she ain't light.
On the final (unless car is pants) train of the day. Get off 2 stops short of Ashford.

I bloody hope this isn't a colossal waste of time.
The car looks good in pictures, two tone paint, good history on MOT's, right engine and grey velourish interior wcpgw?

Presumably Targa red.  Much underestimated car the Maestro.  Not bad handling, not bad to drive.  And that paint was so easy to match too.  Good for you.

Man, you are doing this very, very wrong - taxi? First class? Intercity 125 in twin-headlamp GLS trim?

 

Nice looking Maestro though.  G'luck.

Yes, all wrong but the cars very right. Bit of rot on the arches but repair panels provided. Sills are a little crispy with the paint flaking off. Just needs that sorting and undersealing. Got a good selection of service parts included so I didn't haggle over the price.IMG_20151219_152711041.jpg

Going by that number plate the car must of originally been registered in Northwest Kent as I've had a few KK registrations over the years and have a car currently that comes from the Sidcup area with the KK registration

Red really does look good on a maestro and I always found them to be a nice drive...
The only thing better would be if it was an early talking MG version with a twin Webber carb and an R series for bonus points but I doubt if any of those survive..

Its very familiar being back behind the wheel of the micetro, I don't remember the seat being quite so forward even when pushed right back though, for a bigger car it's a bit tight up front! It may need the runners moving back a bit, the seats are comfy though.
The auto choke is a bit dithery, I'm enjoying the 1.6 engine and getting used to the gearbox although reverse is in the wrong place (extreme left and up instead of extreme right and down).
Riding around it soaks ups the bumps nicely and reminds me of my old SD1 a bit soft and wallowy, I don't know if it needs new struts and springs or is just the way it is.
Nice to find it's shod in 3 year old michelins all round, the oil's still a nice golden colour, certainly gives the impression of a car that's been looked after.

Theres a maestro and montego owners club sticker on the wind screen, I'll have to see if they know anything of J65 LKK's history, and perhaps the best way to revive a headlining coming away from the backing.

Some pictures, taken today, sorry I should have washed it but many spiders are living in the wing mirrors and I couldn't bring myself to commit arachnicide on my day off.

 

I've taken pictures of all the manky bits.  

 

Car comes with bootiful of spears as pictured and many many dog hairs are available by separate negotiation.

 

Don't ask me why the sunroof louvres are covered in red sticky stuff I didn't trap a small animal in the fully functioning and non leaking sunroof.  

 

Moar pictures are available on request (well you can ask).

Few details I neglected to add:

 

MOT until 3rd August (ideal for running all summer then Sorning and ignoring until Spring).

 

Starts runs and drives without issue, started right up after being laid up for a month.

 

I'll wait until after shitefest to advertise elsewhere, I'll put it on monthly rolling tax on it for now.

 

Straight sale is preferred as I'm struggling for space, this has always been parked on the kerb and with the drive being widened there won't be any space outside for it.

 

What's it worth?  Maestro prices seem to yo-yo but I paid a cheap at the time £650,  I'd take £525 as a rock bottom no hassle sale.  

 

Which equates to £9 a ticket. 

 

44 & 17 pls

I've been told it's the foam from the headlining that turns into that mess.

 

I did for a minute wonder about red spidey things.

 

I  can't imagine anyone with a red afro wanting to be seen in a Maestro!
