Posted 23 November 2016 - 07:13 PM

I have decided to try raffling the Talbot to see if there is any interest in it.

 

The cost per ticket is £6, I won't take any money until I have seen how much interest there is in it.

 

It has had an "unofficial" MOT today and the only two things my mechanic told me it would fail on are some welding to the rear drivers side suspension around £150 he quoted which is about 3 hours work there and the windscreen washers don't work.

 

I have had this car since early 2014. It had been off the road for a few years having been owned most of it's life by an elderly gentleman in Leicestershire. I have bought an Austin Maxi (my favourite make and model of vehicle) which needs some work so I have no room now for the Horizon.

I has 51,000 miles and MOT till January.

It's good points are:

1) Engine is in good mechanical condition - drives well, doesn't burn oil
2) Two new front wings
3) Basically solid, has been waxoiled underneath and most of the body is solid

It's bad points are:

1) Leaks into the front footwell via the passenger parcel shelf - it is not as bad as it was as it used to create a very deep puddle but it still needs looking at as after heavy rain a lot collects on the passenger side shelf, there is one small hole in the inner wing where I am told it is coming from which just needs filling, however I am not convinced it is coming from there. The floor is often damp. 
2) Greenery is growing in the front carpet!
3) Interior is tatty, drivers seat in particular is extremely worn as is the top of the rear seat, I have put seat covers on
4) Gearbox is worn but works. It sometimes jumps out of first if it is not pushed in firmly enough and second crunches
5) Exhaust is blowing at the manifold.
6) There seems to be a tapping sounds from the front under acceleration but my garage hasn't found any problems and it has not been picked up at any MOT's
7) Bottom of the front doors need work

It does drive but I would be loathe to drive it on a long journey due to the blowing exhaust although it is not too loud in the car. Last year it drove to Kent and back with no problems including a seven hour drive sitting in motorway traffic where several modern cars had expired on the hard shoulder.

 

My main concern is that it goes to a good home and that is most likely to happen on Autoshite, I think I am the third Autoshite owner of this vehicle.

What on earth would I do with a Talbot Horizon, of all cars, in beige, of all colours?  And how could I possibly justify it, especially to the Mrs?

 

4 and 16 please.

I will send some PM's later.

 

Thanks all it is heartening to know it should be going to a good home.

I am surprised this idea hasn't caught on with eBay or something similar. It makes buying and selling things fun, You could end up with a car for a few quid and if you lose out then you haven't lost much.
