I may have the chance of this coming into my possession ... 

 

IMG_20190314_182229.jpg

 

It's had a shunt up the back and will probably need a bit of work to be roadworthy but I can't see it scrapped.

 

Spotted it outside an old style repair garage and spoke to the bloke who works there. He said it belongs to an old lady who has had it years and it has had no expense spared over the years. It is mechanically sound, so I'm told. It is probably going to be a write off, and she will be washing her hands of it most likely as it's an uneconomical repair.

 

Any interest on here? I may just part it out or try to find another to make one good car...

 

Ps. Reg number is available for MOT check purposes, I just had to promise to blank it out due to the old lady who owned it being a bit paranoid apparently. :D

I'd me more concerned about how long it's been sat in that bush for, than the bump on the back. Is it a 1.5 auto?

MOT expired May 2015,so suspect the story may be a little off..

That's a 323F1.6GLX manual in Passion Rose. '92-'94?
Black door mirrors mean no sunroof, no ABS, wind up windows, Clarion radio cassette.
It'll have the dark interior trim with blue and green highlights (rather than the earlier light grey velour that always looked grubby).
Lovely thing.

There's actually two of them, in pretty rough condition, the other one is blue. They belong to the son of the garage owner.

The 1600 would be a bit more nippy in Mike D's Roffle 3 door BG.  Same car under the covers.

If someone feels particularly brave, they could get a very cool, fun and cheap to run sporty car for scrap value though. You'd need have quite a bit of talent in bodywork to straighten out that rear end though...

 

But look:

My thoughts exactly. If he does offer it to me, I will take it only if free, and break it for spares.
