Didn't really want to be selling this without seeing it through fully, but as I've now 3 cars on my own fleet out of 4 needing attention, I feel I must make room and time to get on with those.
Bought originally as a non-runner, I had it towed home, pulled the wiring apart and buzzed the loom, and taped it back up. I have been using it without fault for around 200 miles, save for some water getting in the abs unit plug. (I have treated it with elec. Cleaner and Wd40, it occasionally misbehaves in wet weather still)
It now has a comprehensive service history, it has had a refurbished rear axle, alternator and a new clutch within the last few years, and the cambelt done in 2014 at 73k.
Currently the mileage is 114k and the mot is due June 2020, in my opinion the sills may require attention as they are a bit tatty, for the time being I have flatted them back and covered them in stone chip paint. The body is generally good, save for giffer touch ups all over in the wrong shade of green.
It has remote central locking, both keys and does generally drive really well, HOWEVER, the EGR valve seems to be stuck as when vacuum tested, it holds but does not sound to be moving. This manifests itself as a slight hunting between 1800-2000rpm.
EDIT- EGR NOW REPLACED, NOT MADE ANY DIFFERENCE.
I will give it a minor service before collection, but the price is a firm £650, which reflects the work it has had in the past, but also the fact it needs a little more fettlement.
I really need to unload some of the cars.
Doesn't matter how much I try and justify it to myself, I've just got way too many at the moment.
This is a large problem that became very apparent when I started looking at moving workshop to somewhere larger to consolidate where I keep my stuff and hopefully make some headroom. The realisation struck me that I've got enough work to keep me going until retirement, and it's simply not worth it. I need to cut some stuff out and make a clean break I think.
1972 Beetle 1200 restoration (keeping and finishing, it's Sarah's car so probably doesn't count, to be fair I've done a fair bit on this)
2000 beetle 2.0 (Sarah's car, needs a battery and some welding doing, but given she's not driving it's fine, and it can be quickly made into a car again. I really need to keep this one too.
1984 Caravelle restoration (keeping and finishing, had this forever and can't part with it.)
1974 Subaru Beetle (can't really sell this one, made a promise on it and need to see it through)
2006 Mondeo ST 2.2 Diesel (I'm keeping this, as it's my daily driver)
So that brings us to the stuff I really need to get rid of.
2002 Mondeo ST220 in Infra Red (I bought this because nothing appreciates like a fast ford, it's a project but an easy one, and I've not touched it for three years now. It's in a dry garage, this can be for sale. I keep missing the guy with the garage access to get the pictures done
Here's one from just before it went into storage. I can't imagine being that it's sat in a dry garage it looks a lot worse. Battery will be shot, needs a window reg, they're about £20, I might have one. It had a bit of a sump weep and needed discs and pads, and probably tyres too. I don't remember seeing any rot in there, but it may have started to go a bit by the front wings.

it's infra red, I've got some good part worn tyres I can sell with it for the right money, needs re-commissioning. Plate is N99 JLM,
1999 Golf S 1.9 TD estate. That's the one that was meant to go last week. All working now, just needs me to put some coolant in it and get a battery, the chap was meant to bring one, then let me down, MOT'd till March 29th. Might just get this re-MOT'd and park it down the unit as a spare "pool" car. NOW SOLD

W124 300E (m103 3.0), ex David Bailey car apparently. Lost all the paperwork, probably worthless, refuses to run right, I suspect the K-Jet is shagged. I just can't find the motivation to do this. It's fairly solid, I've got new discs and pads in the boot for it. Really should just get rid of this one. if anyone wants this please get in touch, and I'll do some photos for you.

It won't come on the 17's, as they're valuable on their own, I've got some original wheels, but I need to sort them out with tyres, I'll try and do that and get some updated ones. NOW SOLD
S124 200TE, rusty. Currently at a friends in Corby who's been apparently doing the welding on it for me. I'm yet to see evidence of this. I've basically written it off as a bad experience. If anyone wants this please get in touch. It does drive, but it's rough as arseholes due to degraded ignition bits and very rusty, although it might be less rusty now. I dunno, I'll arrange some photos if I can. Reg is G878ERP if you're curious, as you can see, off the road for ages! NOT MOVED SINCE I STARTED THIS THREAD, ANYONE FEELING BRAVE? MESSAGE ME!

Don't think I need any more than those smiles to sell it.
Hallo chaps. Too much tat lying and I have a funeral to pay for...
Mk2 Mondeo 2.0i Zetec, 44k miles, on ST170 alloys plus comes with a set of original spec 5-spoke alloys on duff tyres. MOT til 27/5/2020, some history and a recent battery.
There are a few marks (pictured), the rear arches aren't too far gone and it has had welding done on the sills.
The front windows open fine but need a little help closing, they come out the runners on the way up. C/L and heated screen work fine, as does the electric drivers seat adjustment. The clutch bites cleanly and the car pulls well through all the gears.
It has been sitting a month or so due to the diesel Proton's arrival and I could really do with the cash (unless someone has a carb-fed Proton saloon kicking about in which case I'll sell my arse instead).
Advertised elsewhere for £525, £400 on here with shiters discocunt applied.
Car is in Paisley, Scotland, four minutes walk from Paisley Canal station.
