Well we know there is the Holy Ace Of bASe grey grille, what other base models are in the autoshite family? Our mk3 Mondy is in the lowest spec, but it's loaded with kit so it clearly isn't buttery at all. FOAD has a bASe Lada Riva as only 1 trim was available then, and captain 70s has just bought a bASe Honumph Acclade too, so over to you bASe shiters to check in

I've got a Tempra S 1.9D.

All round manual windows.
Dials non illuminated.
Has a manual pump adjustment plunger for reducing 'opaque emissions'. Never seen one before.
Massive storage hole in dashboard which would be filled in higher spec cars.

It's nothing compared to some of the others but it's someone brassic bought that new.

Whilst I don't own one, to me.... This is the ultimate in bASe.

 

A BX with 'small' wheel trims, no front headrests, ideally in BX11 spec. The rear badge must just say 'BX'. There was a rumour that a BX10 was available in the Italian market but i've never had this confirmed.

My 74 Capri base.

F4ADB701-292B-49F3-B7CD-6316D73253F9.jpeg

It’s basically a Capri with no extras whatsoever! Not even a radio!
It’s also registered on the V5 as ‘Capri Base’.

The ex Krujoe 106d is a Graduate model. I don't know if that was the base model but it should be, it didn't even have a lighter or intermittent wipers. It does have a sunroof which appears to be a dealer/importer fit type thing.

Some did, but there was also a tiny handful that got a unique type of door mirror. Only fitted to the Capri mk2 from start of production in Jan 74 up to Nov 74. Mine should have one of these mirrors on the drivers side only.
It’s missing though sadly, having been replaced by standard mk2 mirrors instead.
The correct ones are very hard to find now but are similar to mk1 Capri door mirrors.

I have a base Corsa Envoy ( although there isn't much left of the original spec!) And the Megane is also the entry level Authentique model.

Neither of which are or were, in my opinion, austere enough to qualify.

By 2001, that got you a rear wiper, as well as the digital clock. No PAS, no electric windows or mirrors, no central locking (other than that you can easily reach every door from the driver's seat). Easily the most simple car you could buy in 2001.

Brilliant... late in for lunch I fired up an off-brand pot noodle and while carrying it to the lounge successfully spilled it all over myself, burned the piss out of my hand, soaked my phone with the juice, soaked a load of expense receipts I was also carrying and it hit the hall floor and just fucking exploded....it was literally dripping from the ceiling in my newly decorated hallway. The obvious and considered reaction was to throw an immediate, massive paddy and boot the fucker down the hall while screaming, which has made the whole scenario about 18 times worse.

While my mk1 Fiesta is a popular plus as it's an 83 that might have been the bottom. If there a scan of the brochure/price list? Might be the same for the 89 mk2 too.

My Micra sits at the base L spec, afaik was not one lower, mod cons would be the CVT box, a radio/cassette which I am not sure was standard or not.  Only the passenger mirror is adjustable as the driver ones is only adjustable exterior.  No power-steering, airbags or windows.

According to wikipedia (so it must be true) my Saab 900i 2 door saloon is the base spec car of the range.

 

It has wind up windows,no sunroof,air con or abs and still has the older eight valve engine fitted.

It came to me with and was originally fitted with pressed steel wheels with stainless trims too.

 

Prices lists from when it was new also put this spec at the bottom of the pile.

I have an entry level 2006 Citroen Picasso ( which seems to have undergone some sort of Project Drivesq cost cutting, like deleting the nick nack holder from the fuse box lid and replacing the spring clips from the passenger seat to T20 Torx bolts so accessing the battery now takes 20 mins rather than 2)

No air con

Keepy fit windows

ONE ( count it) electric mirror and one manual one.

Two speakers in the front only. Empty grills in the back.

No fittings for (let alone a) Citroen shopping trolley.

To be fair, everything I've ever driven back to 60s stuff has had some sort of light in the speedo, otherwise how would you know how fast you're going at night? That does sound broken - and not everything has a dimmer.

 

Do they actually check them at MOT though? They're sometimes quite hard to make out in the daytime!

To be fair I wouldn't be surprised if it was broken. The indicators on the wings don't work either....

Oh my AX is also a base model. The Debut was the replacement for the slightly uninspired sounding 10E. Manual choke on a K plate, no electric anything.
