Posted 22 January 2017 - 07:55 PM

My sister is seeking to rid herself of her beloved Focus. It's her first car (sort of), and it has spent the last two and a half years doing 50ish miles a day commuting her to Buckingham and back, and it's done it virtually without fault. Last year it transported her plus others to Belgium and back without any incident. ACT NOW AND GET FREE BELGIAN MUD*.

 

I'll do the normal...

 

Wat

  • Ford Focus 1.6 in Zetec flavour (electric front windows, CD player*, heated front screen**, air-conditioning***)
  • Blue (it says silver on MOT certs for some reason)
  • One key (remote fob)
  • Registered 17th December 2003 (03)
  • Current mileage: A little under 170k
  • Unlikely to be collectable until next weekend, although this might change (thread will be updated)
  • FOR SALE: £150 no offers (see below)
  • ROFFLE: £2.50 per ticket (see below)

*Worked six months ago, not tested since then

**Some elements not working meaning small strip in centre of screen that doesn't get defrosted

***Doesn't work, never attempted to investigate, possibly just needs re-gassing

 

Is good?

  • MOT July 15th 2017, last serviced 13th June 2016 @ 156k
  • Present V5
  • 4x new tyres on superbly clean alloys purchased approximately six months ago for MOT (£200+ receipt present)
  • Recent new (complete) exhaust and waterpump (no receipt, done by a friendly local chap called Steve York, see 2016 MOT failure)
  • No MOT history for bodywork corrosion or evidence of serious crustyness
  • Nice colour and generally unblemished bodywork
  • Most paperwork acquired since purchase in August 2014 kept

Is bad?

  • Clutch starting to slip under hard acceleration; gentle driving generally fine and largely unaffacted in 1st/2nd gears, more noticeable in 3rd gear 30-60 acceleration
  • No cambelt history - visual inspection carried out when waterpump replaced and it looked 'pretty good' (i.e. not perished) - but would advise to assume the Cambelt Roulette Anticipatory Position (CRAP)
  • No handbooks/service books etc
  • Stubborn going into reverse sometimes
  • Driver's side window requires physical encouragement to go down sometimes
  • Heater only works on setting number 4 (HURRICANE)
  • Melted plastic on passenger side doors from side-swipe style collision (not sister's fault)
  • Torn driver's seat bolster
  • Poor radio signal
  • UTTERLY HANGING EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR thanks to two and a half years without a wash or valet and a job as a CNC machinist that leads to ALL of the dust being brought into the car

The good news is that my sister intends on getting it valeted thoroughly this week as she is aware I'll be starting this thread. Therefore, it will look a lot nicer than it does below should one of you fine people decide to come and view/collect it. I've assured her, though, that some here will find the following photographs quite exhilerating and enticing for reasons that are best left unapproached.

Focus_3.jpg

Focus_4.jpg

 

Potential first signs of paint corrosion/rust possibly, or might just be ALL OF THE GRIME

Focus_5.jpg

Focus_6.jpg

Focus_7.jpg

 

This is not a scratch really, it's melted plastic that could probably be washed/polished off

Focus_8.jpg

 

BEHOLD THE HANGINGNESS!

FREE BELGIAN MUD PICTURED!

Focus_Interior2.jpg

 

Four excellent alloys with six month old tyres

Focus_Wheels.jpg

 

Rare Cat-Approved* paperwork

Cat Approved Paperwork.jpg

 

As per the title, there are two options really.

 

FOR SALE

Looking at Autotrader and considering the clutch issue/lack of belt history, but also bearing the seven month MOT in mind too, I don't think asking £150 is unreasonable on a no offer basis. If there is no interest on here (THIS PLACE ETC...) then it'll be put on Gumtree or something with a slightly higher price to take into consideration the excellent bartering techniques employed by the Mensa members that frequent that website.

 

ROFFLE

If 59 or slightly fewer of you want to share the potential burden of owning this fine piece of Ford automobile technology, I'd sell the tickets at £2.50 per ticket with no multi-buy discounts offered but hearty respect waved in your general direction due to your obvious ballsy nature. This will take the slightly higher Gumtree asking price into consideration as well as additional roffle-related administration.

 

Any questions or interest drop me a PM.

Nice one egg. :)

 

I appreciate there's a smorgasboard of shite available at the moment on here, quite a lot of it working properly and probably not as hanging as the Focus currently is.

 

This is what I imagine post-Christmas sales to be in Autoshite Stores Limited if a department store were to ever open.

What a shame it's not a diesel. I still wouldn't want it, but the Jag registration number would be more appropriate.

For that cat to approve that paperwork, it must be really really good!

I drove it back to her house when it was purchased and at the time it was a pleasantly revvy and responsible motor with guts. The clutch issue probably dulls this experience slightly, and 170k or so may have nibbled away at a few of the horses, but it still sounds as sweet as a nut.

I was going to say that you'd likely be disappointed given the sheer volume of dust dust over the colossal steel toe-cap shoes and heavy duty clothing, but then I remembered I'm on the Internet and on a car-oriented website.

 

I'm not sure if cms206 wants one or three, but on the basis that it may get momentum amongst the other roofles...

Never let it be said that I do not understand capitalism.

 

With a Saab floppy-top, a diesel Mondeo, a Fiesta, a German RWD coupe, a German RWD saloon, an amazing French thing, and a tiny Fiat all currently for sale/roffle and about on the front page - most in generally perfectly functioning order - I am under the impression that this saturated market of interesting metal will quite easily (and understandably) push this offering off the front page.

 

My last ditch effort is to offer tickets at a new bargain price of £2.50 each (making £147.50), to try and undercut all but the rattly Mondeo.

 

The car will be going onto Gumtree tonight otherwise.

'rave' already has 22.

 

Anyway, I've sold this on Gumtree already, so NERRRRR. Well actually, I advertised the car, got phone call twenty minutes later 'take advert off I'll buy car £150 cash in hand when it's available', explained that the weekend looked most likely, took advert off as I always allow ONE benefit-of-the-doubt because I'm that do-gooder you hate, created new advert saved to drafts, texted guy explaining that if £149.50 is presented on the day he'll be leaving empty handed, had no response yet).

 

So anyway I'll continue the Roffle...
