It’s body work is very rough* but can’t be faulted apart from that.

*yeah we noticed. 

There are 3 basic trim levels, s,se,sport.

Sport had factory tinted windows as standard, they don't go up or down any faster, in case you were wondering .

Not eBay but certainly is a Bargain*.

Location Spain asking 3000€ for a Citroen ZX.

The advert does say Diesel pump has been repaired.

Forgot to say the car has accident damage.

That photo was taken at the time of accident and it looks like a Guardia Civil (police) in shot at the far top left. Wearing High Vis vests is compulsory when you leave a car at an accident or breakdown in Spain.

£1,925 is strong money for an MGF, but perhaps it's a fairly tidy one.

Looking good so far.

Oh...

Hmmmm...

Why yes. I'd like a car that requires a tetanus booster every time I get out, and no way of pulling the door shut from inside.

Ironically, it will cost you over half of that price just for the hard top of a Black MR2 Roadster

Good grief, there used to be an Escort Mk VI around here with a 306 front and these Ferrari F355 units as rear lights, but this looks even worse. 5600 BIN for something that looks like an unfinished Pimp my ride episode? Meh...

Ring it. 

Basically this. M140s of that era are worth an absolute mint.  They're actually increasing in value.

The M140i is a 3 litre turbocharged engine with absolute bags of torque. Its replacement, the M135i has less BHP and a more sanguine 2 litre.

Thing is, it looks fairly OK at a distance - a straight swap into a chassis of a similar era. The wheels look OK too. Someone will pick that up, swap it in its entirety into a shell that has a blown engine or something and sell it off as the real thing. And arguably, this is a more honest ringer than one that's a cut-and-shut.

"I WILL ALSO GIVE THIS IN WRITTEN WRITING"

What other sort is there? Unwritten writing? But then that's not writing at all...

£2,000 Audi A4 "limo".

Interior looks good. Body looks alright, had a timing belt and water pump, suspension work and wheel bearings...sounds pretty good, right?

 

Well...

200k miles

SORN since 2012

engine has seized 

work is required on the Auto box

 

Wonder if the timing belt was done in 2012...

Lots of bullshittery going on too.

Says on the advert that the MOT "expires" on 22/7/2021. Except it doesn't. It expired in February and doesn't appear to have been at all dealt with.


So we've got a 2006  poorly spec'd import (that says 2017 on the advert, except that's when it was imported) that hasn't had an MOT for 8 months and they want £7k for it. Bonkers.

It looks like something from the 1980s.

25 grand Land Rover 'hybrid' with a TVR V8. Registered as 1967 E reg so Tax and MoT exempt.

Land Rover hybrids existed mainly in the late 80s and early 90s when poor people with beards and cable knit sweaters wanted a coil sprung utility Land Rover but couldn't afford to buy a 90 or 110. The solution was simply* to buy a Range Rover with rotten bodywork but a good chassis and either shorten the chassis from 100 inches to 88 inches to fit a short wheelbase Series Land Rover's bodywork or leave it as it is and shorten the bodywork from a long wheel base Land Rover. A bonus was that the donor chassis usually came with a factory fitted V8 engine already installed for more power. Back then there was nothing especially dodgy about hybrids, there wasn't any Mot exemption for classic cars and Tax exemption hadn't yet been introduced. 

The pictures don't show the engine or the chassis, but I'd suggest that this is in fact a Land Rover 90, made in the 80s or early 90s fitted with a Rover V8 engine which could be from a TVR (I don't think they were especially different to the ones fitted in contemporary Range Rovers and Discoveries). I reckon the only bit of this that dates from 1967 is the vehicle identity, presumably taken from a scrapped vehicle to save on the hassle of having to pay for tax and MoTs. Not the first person to have done this but distinctly dodgy nonetheless.

Re that Land Rover:

"An extreme lodge amount of time and money"

"We came up with an i dear on trying to make it look like"

 "Everything inside as been replaced "

Do people genuinely dictate adverts verbally using voice recognition these days?
