Proton Jumbuck £600 and Mazda Tribute V6 ( mots expired)

Recommended Posts

Proton Jumbuck with Truckman top.. not mine,  but an elderly  friend who has  a small cattery , so it hasn't exactly been  overloaded !!    . It's done 60k & 88 miles , banana yellow ,white truckman .No rips or wear  in the  vinyl seats , no dents  that i could see ..it's very clean  ,  Reg is GN54 EAG  ...


Ps the huge ( MOT check) mileage last year was because someone else borrowed it for 6 months !


That silver Mazda 4x4 is for sale too but I dunno what it is !  Automatic petrol and it goes like stink tho !!   I think its a Mazda Tribute 3 litre v6 ?



I've scribbled out her business  and address  ...in "Paint"  !

Both the Jumbuck and Tributes mot's have now expired . The lady has bought a new car .  The Jumbuck needs a set of boots , thats probably about it , it's very clean . The Mazda Tribute  is a 53 plate and apparently is rusty underneath...so her mechanic told her ..giffer dents,but pretty straight . Dead cow seats .. I noticed the exhaust is like mine ..welded patches here and there .. 



Jumbuck advertised at £800 , she agreed £600 bid on a phone call.. but a no show ..so I guess £600 would still buy it  . The Tribute I have no idea on price yet ... v6 petrol  auto . but it will be for sale .. LC03 RJZ

Those Bumjucks are quite a sharp looker I reckon. I know they probably drive like a toilet but I’d still happily blat around in one, specially a bright yellow one that says ‘cattery’ on it, somehow that seems a great look for a shiter. Why does a cattery need a pick-up truck anyway?

I think you’ll find that Foad’s red one is tested until next year but the yellow one that is for sale is out of test

No, but i’d mistyped the EAG as EAJ. And that’s also a Scroton Bumfuck. WHAT ARE THE CHANCES?

Tax deductible .. :-D    The cat stickers peel off ... I may try and get it for myself  actually ,as i'm making a side step for her new car ,so she'll owe me. :mrgreen:


I looked under the Mazda Tribute yesterday ..Its rotten as a pear at the rear ends of the sills and lower arches . Seat belt mount and axle pickup point is within 30cm of the hole. It's spares or repairs only for that one !  WD SUIT BOLLOX THOUGH :-D .Sump was oily too .

Just how cheap might that tribute be, I really like the maverick badged version . Column shift I assume. Any problems with the oil pressure light coming on when idling in drive when it's hot?

Automatic . Its v6 dohc... 3 litre ?  i believe .. Dunno about oil light .

I went in it with her once , she really did scared the crap out of me , it's fast ,down single track country lanes with blind bends . Not that I would critisize someone elses driving ..just that I'm captain slow !  I honestly had to shut my eyes . The only problem with it is,  she doesn't use it ..it just sits there week in week out , and the battery is then  flat when she wants to go out . She's disabled and fears it wont start again when she's out ..It's just lack of use.! Tailgate is rotten at the bottom too .. Its done about  77 odd k   I think . Look up the mot history , it wont be much more  ! Shite Knite would have it welded up and mot'd  by lunchtime . Reg is LC03 RJZ

      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?
