Fiesta Mk1 - £1700

Recommended Posts

:shock: Get ya wallet out :-D

Just gotta find the right Ford licker!

 

Here we have a rare example in xxx yellow including the much sought after rear spoiler. Car was exhibited at Stowe House in July 2018 and has been subject to a thorough restoration but could be improved further blah blah blah

Pretty lovely.

 

If my mother in law dies quite soon I'll be knocking on your door with some grubby £20's in a roll.

She is however in very rude health so I expect that this will not happen before someone else has beaten me to it.

When your mother in law dies, leaving cash to your wife.

What makes you think you will see any of it?

I would love to own this too. No idea why but I'd love to buzz around Bristol in it.

 

Unfortunately two problems. One is that it'll probably get nicked around Bristol. Two is that my neighbour gets shirty when I have too many cars. As we're wanting to move, probably best I don't agrivate him further.

I  am toying with the idea of selling this Fiesta... I don't use it ,and  it's taking up valuable space in my workshop . It does need the lower half and bonnet painting properly , it has wads of history from basically one previous owner. It's up and running , presentable , and I wouldn't hesitate driving it  anywhere . ( Well I would ,as its a noisy little shitbox)  What do you think I would get for it  ?

 

Old Fiesta? Worth nothing really. I would give you £300 if you can deliver. That's a good price mate.

It's got to be worth at least a couple of grand. It's not an XR2, it's in a good colour, it's mechanically and structurally sound, and early Fiestas have been desirable for a few years now, Ford tax nonwithstanding.

 

Don't suppose you'd like to swap it for a Lada...

Can't I just borrow this very very long term :-)

 

I'll never understand the strangeness that is scene tax on Ford and VW. I suppose it can be a good thing as at least it means you can get the bits.

 

I'm sure it'll be easy to sell even at around £2000. Shame the fate of so many lately hasn't been rust but the stupid engine change lowering lot.

I also am confused by scene tax.

 

I can appreciate doing it to a car that requires quite a bit of work to put back on road so by the modifying route it gets saved, but I couldn't do it to a decent motor, I've seen quite a few mint low mileage cars destroyed by new owners "improving" them and subsequently smashing them up

Unfortunately my current car has "scene tax", but this only seems to apply to aftermarket parts. Second hand original parts are shit cheap.

Currently someone on the forum is selling 4x standard 17" wheels with tyres for £50. Unfortunately they're over near Blackpool or I'd have them.

      I have a Vespa PX. I love it. I commute daily on it.



      I don't have a bike license so I'm riding around on L plates which I'm finding frustrating given that I appear to better understand the rules of the road than 99% of other drivers. Or at least I know how to break them politely. Also I'd like to take a passenger from time to time.

      I'd like to take my bike test, direct access ideally, and I fully understand it's safety training as well, but £700? Ain't gonna happen. I'd like to do it myself on my Vespa, and given that it's a 125 and manual I could do restricted licence test on it couldn't I? NO! I hear you say! Why not? Because bureaucracy. How dare they take away my rights? You could probably fund the NHS with the money that they'd save by not ruining my life etc..

      So enter the LML.. A copy of the Vespa Made under license in India. It's identical in all but name and some suspect quality electrics. WCPGW? Because of modern regs, they've got a cat and hence a bit slower in standard form than the PX that they're based on, until you unleash an extra 10th of a horse by drilling a heart shape in the air filter. True story.



      So anyway, given that they're identical only slower, you couldn't possibly take your bike test on one could you? WRONG AGAIN! YOU CAN!! Apparently it's hard to hit the 31mph required for the MOD 1 test, but I think the naysayers aren't trying hard enough. WCPGW?

      ​So enter an ad on an owners forum. LML, 2 stroke (essential), 2000km, 2 years old, "broken right indicator". £MEGA BARG. I bought it about 2 months ago. Unseen obvs. The only problem is that it's 120 miles away. Several idiots on shiply claimed that they could collect it for reasonable money before changing their minds on time/date/ location. The vendor is a gent, a minister no less, and has been incredibly patient. However as God's birthday is approaching he was becoming less flexible making it harder to co-ordinate with a courier. Van hire seemed expensive and something about him told me that his arms to would be too weak to help me lift it in to a van.

      FUCK IT! Train booked. I"M GONNA RIDE IT HOME. IN DECEMBER. Forecast says rain all day tomorrow. WCPGW??

      Just about an hour ago I went to start my car up, had Mrs Dustman with me, to go and pick Miss Dustman up from work. Turned over fine but took a while to fire up.
       
      Steering felt heavy. Thought maybe as it's currently -5 + wind chill it's just cold & the fluid is thick.
       
      Started reversing out my bay then I was greeted with:
      "DING DONG" - ABS fault.
      "DING DONG" - ESP fault
      "DING DONG" - headlamp auto levelling not working, contact service.
       
      I shut the car down straight away and we went in Mrs D's Corolla.
       
      Alternator is less than 2 months old, it's a recon unit from Alternator Man in Portsmouth. Hoping the cold isn't killing the battery and it's taking the 'nator out with it (battery passed the drop test last time the no-charge warning came up). Looks like a session with the multimeter after work tomorrow.....
       
      MEH.
