Apparently not too bad as long as you don't 

 

 

 

.....Use it? 1500's were/are grim. Crank problems are legion. No Dolomite was ever robustly or sensibly engineered but the 1850 does at least get a move on. The 1500 is just slow.

 

Sprints are still sensible money (10 grand) compared to 20 grand for a Tiger or £70'000 for an RS1600. They're the only Dolomites that don't look like an under wheeled old maid's special.

They're not even properly that yet. Those that are, are white room seller type ones and chancers. The real market at the moment is around the £5k to £6k mark. Breadvan had his up for £7k, then reduced to £6k. I saw the other day that he eventually did sell it (after quite a few months) and took an offer on it.

However it won't stay like this forever, as they're on the rise (albeit slowly still) and starting to become more desirable. Hence if I'm going to get one, I need to get one now really.

You know the 1500 OHV is bad when the 1275 A+ is quieter, quicker and smoother! That was the one thing about my Dolly which I really didn't enjoy, I've never driven a 1850 but I'd love a go.

It's poverty spec, wind up Windows no central locking, it just says 1.6 auto on logbook. It has a set of mint 1.6gti alloys and a gti front on it to jazz it up a bit. Inside is unmarked.

A dolly is about the only thing I would have instead of it, but with the 205 being so nice and so good and only one previous owner and a handwritten spreadsheet of every penny spent on it since new I think I should really keep it.

At the MOT last week, it was on after a 5 year old mini. The tester who I have known and used for years said, and I saw it myself, the mini failed on two wheelbearings, and a bottom balljoint, mileage 38000. All brake components and suspension components on it were rusty. The 205, no rust to be seen, the undersea looking like it had come out of the factory that day. The 25 year old 205, French shite according to a lot of folk, far better than the 5 year old mini, German quality lol

Everyone needs to own a Dolomite at least once in their life time. It’s a bit like like losing your virginity, takes ages to get anywhere, is ultimately not as good as in the adverts and can be quite messy while the lead upto it empties your wallet. But if you do it well the smell of burning rubber will impress the neighbours.

My 1500TC auto was most quick, especially on a Sunday morning, on choke with me half in the car and trying to not hit any other cars in the road as we took off.

 

Ghosty, you have not missed this boat.

 

I also had a 1500TC auto back in the mid 1980s

 

that thing was fooking rapid* and very smooth

 

Compared to my 105e Anglia and 2200SC P6. I got into Stags because of the positive experience with that 1500TC

After the recent events I wish you the very best with this sale. I love love love dollys and will definitely have one again - but I must admit I prefer a manual version. Timing also sucks at the mo' - as I just paid up on the transporter, am off to collect a rapid total shed and ta man has raped me for a lump sum yet again.......

Would anyone on here feel able and willing to list the Dolomite on eBay for me please.

 

No longer able to sell due to eBay taking offence at Mrs PBK's refusal to lower her postage costs to £meagre/unworkable.

 

Obv I will write the wording and so on. Fees covered, etc.

 

Thanks.

Is this not Car and Classic fodder?  Ebay will obviously take the car to the widest possible audience, but I'm convinced you can ask more on C&C with a well worded, well photographed advert than you will ever get from ebay.  It's also free, rather than the £20 or so you'll be relieved of on Ebay.

 

 

^^ That is a very good point!

 

 

Been suspended because someone sent me their email address. 

 

 

^^ Crazy isn't it.

 

 

Stick it to the man and list on Ebid! :D

 

 

Whilst I completely agree this seems like Car and classic, gumtree or anywhere other than the cesspool of wankers that ebay has become, if you really do want to list it there, I will happily do so. I have a high bullshit-from-the-internet tolerance level so ebay still sortof works for me.

 

 

Someone said the Ebay classifieds work better or restricted prior approval buy it now? Dunno...I gave up selling cars ages ago - now I just put them in my field etc.
