1989 Mazda 626 Gone

Recommended Posts

8/10 listing, would have given it 10 but your photo of a screen really needs to be a mobile phone screenshot of a mobile phone screenshot on Facebook to reach Peak Gumtree.

Alternatively, here for a very reluctant sale is my 1989 Mazda 626 2.0 GLX Velourlicious Edition. Last month I was stuck for an MOTd vehicle and RobT very kindly offered me this car for £300. He had it for sale/roffle at the time at £375. Which knowing Rob was probably a fair bit less than he paid for it.

His thread for it is here - http://autoshite.com/topic/29751-a-capella-1989-mazda-626-content/?hl=capella

My time with it is here - http://autoshite.com/topic/29767-my-ax-and-ax-and-buy-my-626/page-7

 

I love this thing but I am staring into the skint abyss, so I would like £300 for a quick painless sale. The MOT is 'til Oct. The bodywork is good, the interior is spectacular velour. An old boy had this from new until about 3 years ago I believe, and did 30,000 miles. The next owner did another 30+k and then Rob took it over. He went abroad in it, and I would happily drive it absolutely anywhere in reliable comfort. It's been great for me, wanging me to work and back effortlessly. The two main faults are the dented door (and perspex window) well documented on Rob's thread, and the high idle at cold.

I would also very much appreciate first refusal when/if the new owner comes to move the car on.

 

It's located in GU16 but we can talk about delivery or whatever.

It really is a cracker. Nearly 30 years old but can be treated like a modern in terms of daily usage. But is far more interesting obviously.

 

DW you need to own this for a bit, seeing as the Starlet isn't proving mile munching material. Thus also saving me from having it back, as temptation is there!

 Having read DW's account of his most recent long drive, I think he needs this Mazda too! :-)

I'm new to the forum and don't know how passing contact info works.

 

Just use the PM (Private Message or Personal Massage or summat) function by sending a message from the recipient's profile page. Or send a sack of cash and jewels.

 

 

How much to deliver to Scotland?

The price of the petrol up there and the cheapest (usually Megabus) transport back.

Cheers, another forum member has made a similar offer of collecting and delivering it. I'd like the car but think there's a good chance of someone closer who actually needs it getting it first and I'm OK with that.

      Moving this over here in case anyone has missed it. Needing this gone within next 2 weeks due to losing parking space. Couple of faults but nothing major. Its mot'd til jan and in good running order. Price drop to £300 as is for quick sale, otherwise i fix the faults and stick it on bumtree for twice that amount! Would make a good winter beater for someone

      Going to try this on here before the fun that is eBay or similar.
       
      My mum has recently replaced her trusty old SportKa with a newer 500 and currently it’s just sat in the garage.
       
      It’s only done 38k with I think mum being the third owner plus a very large file of bills. As you can see from the MOT history ‘a lot’ of miles have been done in the last few years....! Has the leather interior, an aftermarket Bluetooth kit, Air Con that works and four good tyres plus working remote key.
       
      It has had some attention by a welder in the past but the filler area is solid and other than a few obvious bits on the sills and corners of the rear bumpers is in nice condition.
       
      If anyone is interested please let me know. I’m back there later this week so can look at the paperwork or anything else on the car in more detail.
       
      She’s looking for about £750-800.
       
      Car is currently SORN and located in deepest Lincolnshire (near Spilsby).

      Departarting from the norm, I'm being lazy and have actually managed to convince the seller to deliver to my house at no cost. It's only the other side of town but haven't got the time to collect today.

      2 hour countdown starts at 9am

      Hot on the heels of last week’s collectioneering of a Xantia, another collection starts here and now. Well it is probably a collection as long as the car is as described, but I am optimistic.

      Clues. It’s enormous yet quite cramped. Never had one before and it could be considered blessed, saintly even!

      It's the green one.
      If you're proper horny for it then PM me, but anyone with cash can buy a car any time. Meh.
      Would roffle, but CBA with the admin.
       
      Therefore, funtime!
       
      Another KruJoe-spec 99p start AUCTION...
       
      (GBP (Pounds Sterling) bids only, no licked Twixes (John_F, I'm talking to you), bid increments 50 pence or more, that's up to you. Auction ends 24 hours after the last bid. Other T&C's may apply if I haven't thought of them yet.)
       
      It's a risk, but I'll take it.
      I've thought of a number as a reserve, roughly bridge price plus today's £50 MOT fee, so above that, I'm happy. If it doesn't work, we'll re-think, but his is will be a cheap car for one of you lot.
       
       
      Location:
       
      Central, so close to everyone on mainland UK.
       
      Collection: most days/times are possible, evenings are good. Relaxed timescale, storage is not a problem here. I can bring you to it from Skipton bus or rail station.
      The Car.
      My dependable daily for two FTP-free years. Ex-JohnK and Bramz. 
      1.4 Rti run-out model, lots of toys. 
      Cheap tax and cla$$ic policy friendly (£140pa, Carole Nash. A.Flux quoted similar).
      Tested until 31 May 2020, advised on two back tyres.
      Not yet 62,000 on the dial. Likely to be SORN'd before June. V5 here, with loads of history.
      New oil and filter last week.
      Good batt, exhaust, brakes etc. There are a few minor niggles, I've just lived with it. Character, innit.
      Squishy-comfort velour in fine fettle. (Almost) everything works.
      The bodywork scrubs up well but there's some bits of rust if you really go looking. It doesn't stop it being a respectable motor… until… last week one of my favourite brothers rubbed a tractor down the side, damaging two doors and the mirror.

      All still work fine, and I still have the (undamaged) plastic strip from the door. I don't have the arsedness to try improving it cosmetically and I'm ready for a change of daily anyway. The worst would likely push out from inside. As would the small bit on the arch – it's single skinned there. Until that happened, nobody has ever turned their nose up at it, and it has attracted a lot of positive conversation. 








      99p anyone?
