Heres the script from my facebook advert,

Up for sale is my 1984 Carlton 2.0 manual Mk1 facelift.
Showing 42000miles
Mot till december
The car drives well, no knocks or bangs, very comfortable cruiser.
Bodywork and interior in good condition.
Recent work includes a rebuilt weber carb with a manual choke, a new starter motor, ht leads, dizzy cap,rotor, exhaust looks to be quite new but dont know when it was fitted.
Everything works as it should, original stereo, fuel gauge,temp gauge, voltmeter and oil pressure gauge. Even the factory fitted boot 'popper' works!
Only bad points are a dent in the rear panel and a slight hesitation pulling away when the choke is in.
The car is ready to drive away any distance,

I keep on looking but I have nothing pre 1990, just one thing from 1997 that nobody seems to want.

It really needs to sell as I'm thinning down the fleet because I'm looking to move house but could be persuaded by something that takes my fancy

Somebody does, but can't afford it.  Now if you're looking for a car nobody wants.... ;)

As much as the BMW is always going wrong it's my 20 year old 'modernz' something that bit newer than the rest of my snotters

It's will come on the original wheels, I dont like them so fitted some Barry wheels, the car came from englandshire, doubt one would have survived up here!

With the help of FOAD and mrs FOAD we had a go at trying to time it up a bit better, what a difference! Goes very well now, nice induction sound from the weber now and a rasp at higher revs

I can't believe this hasn't sold it seems like a bit of a bargain .

I estimate this car needs £3000 maybe £4000 spending on it to get it rite and when this is done it will be wotrth about £1500!!

I'll take £500 for it now, using it as a daily which seems a shame( until the carina is on the road)
