NOW SOLD


As above in red. Mot fail though. It has been off the road a year and a half.
It's my partners car and her dad, for her bitthday, decided to mot it for her. It failed quite badly and we've decided to offer it here. It's probably worth a good few hundred as spares. If you're handy with a welder you could repair it. I have new discs and pads for it. Her dad fitted 2 new front wings. It also has a new battery. It was used daily until it was laid up surplus to requirement. (We have another 2 cars and a van between us). Anyway she's asking £400. Feel free to rip the piss. No offence will be taken. We live at North Shields but the car is at her dads in Whitley Bay. I can get some pics if anyone is interested.7b7f41255edff697215d16815e1543e9.jpg

Hi there Paul.

 

If you edit your first post, there should be a For Sale tag that you can attach to the title which makes it more visible to everyone.

 

Also is useful to put the price in the title as well.

 

GLWS and all that

 

Cheers

Cheers. I did it from tapatalk on my phone. It's a bit awkward. I'll sort it from my laptop when I get two mins.

Still kick myself for selling mine, but it'd rotten quite badly. It's unbelievable how much fun these cars are to drive, I honestly don't think they can be beaten for value for money in the fun stakes.

It should be possible to sort that out without too much trouble - I'd take it on myself but I'm being ruthless about fleet downsizing this year.

 

So GLWTS, etc.

It looks a hell of a lot nicer than mine!

 

Sills can be done for a couple of hundred quid a side I think. Everything else should be simple to sort, mechanically these are tough as old boots. <insert standard AS refrain> Would definitely have this myself if I wasn't several hundred miles away with no storage space. GLWTS.

It's 100% reliable and would get you anywhere. I can pick up from Newcastle station if it helps. It is a mk1 with poppy up headlights. It is amazing to drive and you can't stop driving while doing so.

From the MoT sheet info, it shouldn't be too hard or pricey to sort out. The worse part is the welding, if it's just the usual aft ends of the sills (where most Mk1's go, my first 5/Eunos did the same) then it's a day a side for an amatuer or about £200 or so a side for a pro to sort.

 

The rest is straightforward. The emissions (high lambda reading) is almost certainly an exhaust leak rather than anything more major. (Again, my Eunos did this). The brakes are worth a go cleaning them up and adjusting the rears for the handbrake action. If they don't respond or have seized then exchange ones from someone like MX5Parts will be about £60 each (exch) and are easy to fit. The tyre and brake discs are again, simple. 

 

From the looks of the photos, this car is a pretty tidy & straight car -  very saveable, especially as the prices of Mk1's have been on the up for some time now. For a value for money fun car, they are hard to beat, I'm certainly not selling mine!

It comes with new discs and pads. I did an engine service just before it was laid up. Oil, filter, plugs, etc. Iirc it has a cone filter.

This is now sold and is the 1st car I've ever sold that went for more than I asked! Very unusual.
