I find myself in need* of a cheap small runabout for a few months whilst my Saab undergoes a refresh. Basically it must have a minimum of about 6 months MOT and be reliable. Ideally it will be small, cheap to run and have a reasonable ground clearance. Who am I trying to kid, I really fancy a C15 van, but typically there does not seem to be any cheap ones about. I do not care about cosmetics, small faults etc. I would prefer quirky, but realistically will consider anything, especially if I have not had one before. I do not want something too good, whilst I am happy to fettle and try to keep going, if something major goes wrong I do not want to feel guilty about bridging it. The plan would be to keep it going and move it on later, but do not want to feel obligated.

 

So, what shite do you want rid of in the bargain bucket division?

I know of a Mk12E Invacar potentially for sale?

 

its relatively cheap* is small, cheap to run and very quirky with reasonable ground clearance and very shite (does not need an MOT too either)

 

it pretty much ticks all* of your boxes!  :mrgreen:

My Grandad is looking to sell his Rover 45 1.4 5dr as sadly his driving days are over. Typical giff marks etc but a tidy car an has only done 83k and had £600 spent on a new headgasket about 18mths ago. Think it be about £500 with Mot till November. Only bad point is it's in the Midlands.

Thanks, I buy most of my chod from Lee (Kinkersaab) and will indeed be visiting him, but it is luck of the draw whether there is anything in.

 

The other cars offered above are far too good for what I need, I would object to bridging them if it came to it and I would end up with another project.

How about a freelander? I've just fitted a fresh VCU, although there is still a bearing noise on the rear drive train. It holds temperature is stable and it has had a headgasket.

I've got the horn for that Merc ML just now...

Drop me a pm, I can put it in for an not as I think it runs out in May?

Thanks, but a Freelander is a bit big for what I want, the Disco does those journeys, looking for a cheap shopping trolley.

There'll probably be a Pug 206 1.4 available from tomorrow for loan till June, was being used reliably for commuting till job change,  a few dents and scrapes - no faults (one vac tube repaired with bit of gas pipe). Somewhere near Gatwick.

Thanks for the kind offer of a loan car, but my track takes it toll and I could easily end up with another project.

 

 

I am starting to sound like an ungrateful fussy bastard when the reality is I am anything but! As long as it is really cheap and preferably small, anything would do.

Scary, you're in Consett, right?

(If Saabnut doesn't want it,) how much for the C2 if you put a fresh ticket on it?

I have a brother in North Yorkshire, he needs something like that in his life.
