Up for sale in my Audi 80, it's a 1.8L 4 cylinder fitted with a Weber carb and manual choke, it has a 5 speed manual gearbox.
The mileage on the clocks is on 250k but it still drives incredibly well - I think it may have had a change of clocks and the mileage is actually much lower but who knows for sure?
For the last mot it had the rear brakes overhauled and had new parts fitted including the drums, shoes, cylinders and handbrake cables.
Overall the car is pretty solid with some wee bits of rust starting to appear on the doors and wheel arches.
There are a couple of faults, there's a sheared wheel bolt in the front hub, it may be possible to drill it out but new hubs are still readily available.
The rev counter doesn't work most of the time, sometimes it will spring to life when driven on a bumpy road so I'm guessing there's a loose connection somewhere.

Recently had a new clutch which made the pedal a bit lighter - it's still pretty heavy though, cable was also replaced and everything greased up so who knows?

It's near impossible to associate this little grey car with its large glass area and clean cut design with the fat dollops lolling along our roads nowadays.

They really are very pleasing to look at aren't they. I borrowed an 80 sport in about 1996 for a bit, with some great graphics down the side. It was lovely. Fast at the time too (both my cars at the time were Hillman Imps).

Those seats look darn tidy for quarter of a million, what's the drivers seat bolster like?

Both seats have bolster wear but I think they might have come from another car because the rear bench looks slightly different material.
I'm not entirely convinced that the mileage is genuine, the mot history only has a few entries since 2006 and there was another set of clocks in the box of spares.

The clocks in the car are probably not original. Look above the rev counter needle it says x5. They came from a 5 cylinder car.....You might have a bit of a quattro in the 80 :-)

I’m surprised this hasn’t gone yet, I’d have thought you’d have found a hipster or a dubber to take it on. £850 sounds a good price.

Yeah, the mot history is also a bit patchy so I thought the clocks might have been changed at some point and the mileage is actually much lower than 250k. It certainly drives a lot better than any high mileage car I've ever had.
