Edited to reflect a change of circumstance that sadly requires me to move this on to someone who will love it as much as me, I've had a very healthy dealer offer but I'm happy to offer it without the trade mark up that will then be attached to it . Feel free to share with any enthusiasts you may know but please don't share to facearse etc. It's the finest left in existence for sure and will go down a storm at shows etc.
My efforts of the last few months have come to fruition and I'm pretty pleased with the outcome
I'm a serial Omega botherer and some years ago I got a sniff of this 1996 Vauxhall Omega 2.5 V6 24v CDX manual that was no longer being used as it's only owner was no longer able to drive, sad circumstances meant it was stored unused for 5-6 years . She was a non runner and in a neglected state by the time I was able to rescue it and @worldofceriwas employed to bring her to me, excellent service and highly recommended!
When she arrived she was covered in the usual moss and grime and was still on the original 1996 tyres which were perished and barely held air. Non running cause was found to be a completely ruined fuel system as the petrol in the tank had turned to a bright green mess that had dissolved all of the internal rubber pipes into a black sticky goo, I don't think I've ever smelt anything so toxic, a thorough tank clean, new piping, sender unit refurbed , filter and new pump and she burst back into life.
Further recommissioning work required was 4 x new Michelin tyres, Cambelt and waterpump kit , complete replacement exhaust system, service , wipers, alternator was refurbished with new internals, new battery and literally scores of hours of cleaning and gentle refurbishment .
The main dealer service history is incredible with 8 miles between services some years. She walked her MOT and now drives like a she has just rolled out of the showroom, unsurprisingly given she's only covered 17 k from new, the interior leather looks like it's just had the plastic removed at the dealers and the rear seats have allegedly never been sat in
