Family. Politics

 

The 2 don't mix. As stated earlier father Sims agreed to purchase this but gave me the ebay WINRAR bidder treatment...

 

*Sigh*

 

Anyway. This fine steed NEEDS a loving home. I had intended it to be mine forever, however, the chance to own a true bucket list car for me was too good to resist. So with regret this is for sale. In dark blue, 5 speed manual 110bhp AFN flavour. No sensitive PD stuff, good old durable AFN

 

112k, FSH, and runs beautifully. A testament to Burnsides grandfather to whom it belonged, it has been maintained to within an inch of it's life. No rust, no major dings, no worries.

 

Has had very recent: cambelt/waterpump, aux belts, 4 new Goodyear tyres/alignment, and a load of other stuff.

 

In my ownership I've done a few things to freshen it up. Demisted headlamps, new wiper arms, dealer plates, EGR blanked and removed, new gear gaitor, and JUST TODAY new brake fluid reservoir and brake fluid (common problem, reservoir cracks open due to positioning). Has 2 keys (if you're turned on by that) and a HBOL. Also adjusted clutch and drives bang on.

 

I am selling it a little more than I paid, but still less what it owes me. I have a habit of making losses

 

No clunks, no smoking no nothing. This car will see you through. I very much doubt you could find one as smooth and well cared for. 

 

Based in Cradley (West Midlands)

 

Will get pictures up when I get it back off my mechanic later for the brake fluid reservoir job.

These ace cracking motors.

 

I did about 60/80k in a saloon one of these exact same engine. They do 50mpg easily and cruise really well if I remember 90 is under 3000rpm and there dead quiet. Mine also needed nothing bar oil changes and some discs and pads. I sold it with 190k on and its till going strong years later.

Yes plenty. Load cover removes and seats fold down if you need even more space to party!

I can report that this looks just as good in the flesh and Sims00 is a top bloke.

 

I'm tempted but a cheap scruffy estate would be more use,  if anyone is upgrading I could run you over to Cradley Heath.

Hey Mo, shame your having to sell so soon. [ Look's Great with the Genuine VW Wheel trims btw ]

 

As Mo mentioned this was my Grandads Car for over 15 years till ill health forced us to sell. It's a great car that got plenty of faithful service left. I really hope it goes to a good home and I honestly don't think you could find a better Diesel Estate for the money.

I've had a lot of interest..please bear with me. I am at the moment, embroiled in a lot personally and work is hectic and extremely intrusive so I am struggling to be free.

 

Sincerest apologies to those to whom I have been slow to reply.

What's it stand for? Morris? Maurice? Seeing as you're so close (I'm usually found in Cradley for various reasons) I'm sure I'll find out soon.

Very smart looking car. Can vouch for the Bosch pumped 90 - 110 bhp non pd vag power plants... simply unbeatable. Good luck with the sale.

I have been incredibly busy...flitting between family down south and back again. Exhausted. This has sold to a lovely chap who has been patient as a saint with me. Will be texting Lord Sterling to arrange collection on his behalf!
