What can you get for just over a quid a day?

Recommended Posts

I picked up my new stead yesterday so this can only mean one thing, I must sell one of my other cars, wife says two must go but hopefully selling one will keep her happy?! probably not. 

 

For Sells is my Renault Clio 1.2 -  Reg, 52000 miles. Reg is T158JOV for those that like to Check MOT history

 

For the last MOT the car had, new rear box, track rod ends, Ball joint, ARB, Rear brakes sorted (new cylinders and all set up by garage) and a few other bits and bobs. I have the receipt for all this somewhere with the parts I think it was something like £350-400. Garage prices yo. 

 

The car has performed brilliantly over the last 8 months I've been using it, I've only done 2.5k in this time as it's mainly used weekends with the last month or so it's been my daily driver. It has it has  been used while I'm renovating my bungalow, and has saved me a fair few quid in skips! 

 

Interior is immaculate for a 18 year old car, to be expected really only covered just over 52K, Body has a few age related marks and one rear arch is showing some surface rust. But really at this age and price range it's to be expected. 

 

Keep fit windows, central locking is hit and miss, No CD player, just a nice hole. MOT expires the 27th November, with this in mind the shitters price is £150 quid, I genuinely believe you'd get more than this for it on ebay etc but I'm just looking for an easy sale. 

 

Car comes ready with new oil and filter ready for you to change, I don't have the time to do this but you can happily take the oil and filter.  

 

Pictures will be added later today but this is the ACTUAL car, just a few months ago!

Did the BMW turd make it back alright? I assume it did!

 

Yeah, steady 60 most of the way with a couple of blips of the loud pedal- not that loud but still, managed a very respectable 39.8 mpg's on the 75 miles back. not bad for a 2.0 petrol automatic! I fully expect that to drop to around 25 knocking about. 

 

It's being put into service tomorrow I've got a fridge to pick up :)

      Note for future reference...  I've decided most of my Matchbox (-sized) cars can go.  It's a vast collection,   Most have been repainted at least once - by me, obviously.  My eyes and hand aren't good enough to do them again.  I've got way too many to list so ask if there's something you want and if I've got it, we can do a deal.  Most will be 50p each plus postage, so it'll make sense to build up a parcel.
       
      I thought it best to do this, then I'm not clogging up the main thread.  This could well go on for months.

      My collections doing my head in, got too many coming & not enough room, so things need to go, & the first in this cull is the skort... 

      Has a years MOT, was 1 owner till I got it a few weeks ago, done 150k, but been over serviced (inc 2 timing belts within 10,000 miles, a water pump, a clutch & a recent battery. It starts & runs well, with only a small amount of CVH rattle (been semi using it as a daily & I'm surprised at how many looks & comments it gets). MOT guy said its running cleaner than most moderns (did you hear that government? WELL DID YOU?). It has run on a few times, & when I checked the plugs they were sooty, so I'm guessing the pistons are a bit coked up due to the previous OAP doing 3-5 miles once a fortnight for the last however many years. Likely solvable with a bit of water injection.

      The battery tray does leak depending what angle you park it at in the rain, so that could use a weld, or a jolly good masticing.

      Its no oil painting, various dinks, scuffs & scrapes & rust (rear arch), a worn through drivers bolster, a cracked door card. The boot strut mounting bracket has cracked, so the strut pops off (chunk of wood included).

      Functionality-wise, the passenger windows sticking (motor & mechs ok, just needs an adjust & WD), central locking goes mental, so fuse removed (likely dirty drivers door microswitch, same fuse as interior lights, so they aren't working because of it). petrol gauge not working (fill up, do 150-200 miles, then fill up again), rear wiper dead (the heated rear screen was deaded too, but it's suddenly working, so possible cracked loom at the boot hinge).
      Other notes.. The front wishbone bushes needs doing, the shocks are tired, the NSR wheel locks up under heavy braking, so either needs adjusting or shoes, the front tires are out of balance at 60-70*mph. It has 4 different keys, one for each lock, both screen rubbers are perished & there's some milkiness to the front one in a couple of places (has a heated screen, but doesn't seem to work)... It's mostly easy but fiddly stuff, easy to deal with if you've got time, but in reality I don't, & I keep spending more & more time on it which is taking time away from other projects.

      I could stick it up for eleventy billion pounds seeing as it's a classic Escort, but it's up for a bargain £699, fellow shitters will get it for less.

      I may swap for a Transit sized van (post 2001 for LEZ reasons, or anything petrol), but, I`d much rather have wonga due to space issues.

      Its giving the feeling that it`d happily drive anywhere indefinitely, and last another 5-10 years. I wouldn't be concerned about driving it across the country.

      In EN5 bit of that there London, just off M25 & A1.

      Sadly I'm selling my Grandfathers Rover 45 on his behalf due to ill health and also having the DVLA take away his Driving licence. 
      It's a 2002 1 .4 Impression 2 in Met Red. 85,000 miles. Remote locking, Leccy front windows. PAS, factory CD player. An AC. 
      It has some battle scares to both bumpers  and a couple of minor dents but polishes up decently. Interior clean and tidy. Still has a full set of genuine wheel trims, mudflaps and rubbber floor mats fitted too. 
      He brought the car in 2013 and it has been a good car on the whole with mainly local trips to the shops etc but has been on a few longer runs over to Wales.. It did suffer a headgasket failure in July 2017. Which he had repaired to the tune of £708! I have the receipt for the work carried out which inc a new Cambelt kit too. 
      We have had the car for over a month and had intended on advertising it sooner, but as my Grandad got admitted to hospital then my Van broke down and the Cav failed the Mot. It got pressed into service and we added over 1,500 miles without complaint. 
      My brother just had a new set of front discs and pads fitted last week as they were past there best.
      I have the V5 and some recent paperwork but my Grandmother can't find the current Mot certificate but it's not really a issue and is available online to view. 
      Pricing this is difficult.  As this is for my Grandad and the money will hopefully go towards a mobility scooter or his care. 
      He wants £500 and can be viewed at WS9, Aldridge or possibly at DE12, Measham if preferred. 
       







       
       
      Mods I have tried to put this in the For Sale section while posting this via my phone, but it's still ended up on the main page?
