Right. Two more BXs for sale. First up is my tricked-out green TZD turbo
For recommissioning. No MoT. I have owned this car for a year or so, in which time I have done absolutely nothing with it and, realistically, I never will. This is a well-known car in the BX club and has been upgraded with virtually every conceivable option including air con, tinted windows, sunroof wind deflector, GTi interior, door handle guards (one has gone missing) etc etc. Hopefully somebody can give it the attention it needs to return to the road.
Pretty straight and complete, paint faded on bonnet and a shallow dent on the o/s rear door/wing but otherwise tidy and presentable. There has been some welding done in the past to the back of the sill and boot floor, looks to be of a good standard. The driver’s A-pillar is just starting to go in the usual place. One rear door shut has gone, but the other is fine. Both inner front wings are coming through and need to be sorted. I haven’t investigated fully, but it seems pretty solid overall and well worth doing.
Seats have been replaced by GTi items (I think) and a GTi dash fitted. All in excellent condition with no issues. One electric window switch missing. The glovebox has been removed to trace electrical issues but is with the car. No idea on the veracity of the gauges and dials as I’ve only ever driven it round the block.
The previous owner of the car told me it was taken off the road after a head gasket failure, repaired but never quite finished. It does run and drive, but not well. One injector is leaking and I suspect air in the fuel system – it won’t idle properly. There are various coolant and LHM leaks – nothing has been investigated by me so I can’t comment, but expect a fair bit of work to get it back up to scratch. Brakes will obviously need looking at, but they do work. The suspension rises and falls without issue but, again, expect some remedial work at least. It does come with all four Speedline alloys but the tyres are all toast. They would benefit from a refurb but are presentable enough.
Overall, a pretty decent car that could be put back on the road without huge expense. It’s scruffy round the edges and has obviously been sat for some time, but it is definitely not too far gone. It would be a shame to break it for parts, but if that’s what you want it for the parts value far exceeds the asking price.I do not have a V5C or any paperwork – I never bothered to apply for it as I have never done anything with the car.
