  1. Its finished and will be going for MOT once i can afford to insure it which will be after ive finished restoring the red 820 fastback. Ive then got my SD1 to do before i drive off into the sunset never to be seen or heard from again 👍
  2. Thanks for the tag ive seen them both on Ebay. £2400 though.... have they been sniffing the fuel tank?
  3. Thank you very much! Sadly non of my 827s are for sale. I've just serviced the nightfire vitesse ready for the restrictions on travel being lifted when i can take it out and Tony Pond it around Derbyshire.
  4. Aye the interior is remarkably good to say it was exposed to the elements for years. I dismantled everything from the interior of the car and cleaned it over a period of three days before reassembling.
  5. Ive already done a post about the 820 fastback i will no doubt do a post on the SD1 and Sterling Saloon when i start work on it. Pending MOT am i still ok to bring Gresley to you for rear arch welding when restrictions are lifted?
  6. Hello there fellow shiters! Firstly my apologies i realise its been awhile since i posted... In my defence ive been distracted by three new purchases a Sterling Saloon an SD1 Vanden Plas and the 820 fastback i posted about in another thread. Only now have i had chance to sit down and update the thread but its definitely been worth the wait in my opinion. I managed to sort the braking issues which were caused by blocked rear flexis as the brakes failed i thought it was best not to piss around and fitted new rear flexis and had new brakes pipes put in. The throttle was also sticking
  7. Ive got one now but thanks all the same
  8. @Lord Sterling is a good chap am hoping to meet up with him at some point anyway so i would definitely be up for meeting with some other shiters when the world rights itself...
  9. Clifford Henry Austin by any chance retired from Cowley in 1990/91
  10. Car arrived today and everything seems above board although it clearly needs a new fuel pump and service. Can we take a moment to remember Mr Clifford Henry Austin formerly of Cowley Works (Since 1946) who's car this was. He retired in 1990 and died in 2019 at the age of 90 i will restore this car in his honour and ensure it is loved and cherished. Especially as the history covers everything from the day it left the factory to the weeks before he died. video-1614093159 (1).mp4
  11. Ive upset many BMW owners in my 827. I cannot give the 800s enough credit your father was right they are amazing cars!
  12. Cheers! il watch this later tonight when the wifes asleep. Now where did i put that cigar and bottle of irish?
  13. Aye it looks like it gonna exceed my limit for that car still its not a bad thing though. Hopefully it will find someone who will appreciate it. You cant win them all and neither can i all the best 👍
  14. No no by all means post away we are all friends here! To see another Mk1 800 always makes me stiff as a board anyway!
