Well, with the new car arriving shortly, it's time to move on the Safrane! Considering its rarity (and the likelihood that I'll never find one in this condition again) its sad to see it go, but needs must, and its replacement is just as amazing! Bramz couldn't justify getting it in the end for reasons so here's someone else's chance to own a nice little piece of French barge...
So what do you get?
Basically one of a handful V6 Safranes with excellent MOT history and 111k miles, GREEN electric, heated cloth seats and a period correct CAR PHONE. It also just passed its MOT with just a deteriorated reg plate and slight play in a wheel bearing as advisories, so not too bad! Body wise its in pretty good shape too, the odd scratches here and there, some bubbling at the fuel filler cap but no real rot anywhere. It drives nicely, doesn't pull to the side under breaking, idles and warms up as it should, no odd vibrations, so no issues there either. It's also getting its alternator rebuild this week as an additional bonus (which wasn't exactly planned...). The power steering pump was rebuilt during the previous owner's ownership but it needs new hose clamps for the reservoir. I also need to get the original radio working, I have put zero time into that yet. It will need a few things here and there but fortunately it has received its fair share of love in recent years.
It also comes with all the hand books and a freaking official Renault repair manual for everything on this car.
I'm advertising it here for 990 quid, that basically is the amount I put into it so it would be good to get it back again, and it seems like a fair price for it. I failed pretty hard taking photos of it so far, I shall provide better ones when the car is back at my house. I will put it into daily use until its sold.
Located in Newcastle upon Tyne. Collection times totally flexible.
