  1. More pics and detail. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/672833269837070/
  2. May be, I can't quite make out the plate, left my reading specs at work. N136 KRN ✗ Untaxed Tax due: 01 May 2011 ✗ No MOT Expired: 29 April 2010 Vehicle details Vehicle make:ROVER Date of first registration:April 1996 Year of manufacture:1996 Cylinder capacity (cc):1120 cc CO₂Emissions:Not available Fuel type:PETROL Euro Status:Not available Export marker:No Vehicle status:Not taxed Vehicle colour:BLUE
  3. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2407643606227416/ Birmingham advertised at £650, petrol, no information on advert, currently on sorn, no mot history. Message seller.
  4. As an ex owner my answer to your questions, No, No, Most things, Difficult. Some one may be along soon with something positive to say about them.
  5. Definitely two randoms, mot history is good and conveniently located if I win.
  6. Fiat's are going well, Bravo 3000 miles with no ftp, 45 mpg local and very rapid acceleration, I'm wondering if its been chipped by a previous owner. Last mot only cost £80, I was planning on using it for the winter then moving it on. But its grown on me and will be my daily for next winter. Going to need some surgery on the sills for the next mot and I have a new set of Uniroyals for it. Van only done about 500 miles in my ownership, use it once or twice a week, started first time on the coldest mornings, bonus very good heater and a straight mot pass last month. If you consider a raffle for the Rover I'll have two randoms.
  7. Have a bump, having seen this in the metal, I concur its in decent condition, can also recommend the seller. Bonus engine bay pic.
  8. A decent bus for both shifts today, Bloxwich High Street waiting time this morning. Blakenall Church terminus this afternoon.
  9. That 306 tick's most of your box's, very low mileage, always reliable, new tyres, mot expires 31st May. Listing has make an offer option. Its 30 miles away from me, I can offer free storage at my unit for a week or three. Shipley might offer a cheap transport service to my location and if need be you could hitch hike to collect it Probably not relevant to the advert but he has lots of positive feedback for selling tig welding gloves, nurses uniforms and used ladies under garments. If all else fails after the purchase, Remove my Car offers £140 scrap.
  10. Indeed, I've sold them three scrappers over the last year, turned up on time, quick look around the heap, paid, loaded, gone.
  11. Raising your limit to £200 would be more realistic, although still difficult to achieve factoring in logistical costs. Remove my car have this week offered £165 for this, no mot, non runner. And £195 for this, same status.
  12. Scrap prices at the moment are good, I recently had an offer £130 from remove my car this. A runner with no mot.
  13. The chances of buying something that meets your criteria are highly unlikely. However you may get lucky, this fine vehicle was advertised on here last year for £100. About four months mot, in running order and the owner delivered it to me, a distance of about ten miles. I did give him a lift back home, so there is the cost of my fuel to add to the to total. I have to say it is without doubt one of the best bargain buys I have ever owned.
