I've been thinking alot about selling this car lately. I would like to keep it and sort out it problems, get it through an MOT but I'm not sure I'm able to now due to ongoing health problems. I'm having a constent battle between heart and brain. It has no MOT. It needs a small amount of welding and a set of tyres and some wires above the tailgate soldered to get the rear lights and wiper working. It runs and drives and stops. It goes up and down and appears to have had all new spheres fairly recently but would need trailering away. The car owes me £500 so IF I sell it, I would like that back if possible but I'm open to offers. I've added photos from when I bought it but since these were taken, I have cleaned it inside and out.

As I type this I'm still not sure whether to sell or not :-D

Have you got an engine bay pic? Curious to see what fuel pump is fitted.

If that's all it needs Steve, I'd say that's very cheap.

Keep it, you will regret it and will 500 quid buy a better one at any point in the future for you?

I won't be buying any more cars so won't have that worry ;-)  The collection will only decrease in size now.

If you were 11,427 miles closer I'd be all over that. Looks a cracking old bus that should be put back on the road.

 

Incidentally, has anyone ever attempted to build a camper van out of one of these?

No but I reckon there would be lots of space once the interior was stripped! I've slept in one though, and it was fine!

Yes but it wasn't what you would call successful.

That (CX) was only unsuccessful due to the knobcheese driving it. I'd have bought one!;)

Location?  Mike's looking for an estate just like this but needs to be sure it fits him for driving.

Ah... that's a shame.  Transporting it the 300 miles back rather breaks the bank on this one and that's *if* it actually fits Mike so for that reason, he's out.  Sorry about that.

That's ok. I will keep it I think. I most certainly can't put up with any more muppets and 'Jeremy Kyle guests' on ebay, so it's just easier to keep it, mot it and hopefully enjoy it ;-)
