1994 Fiat Tipo 1.4ie

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the interest. I put I high price up on eBay to only attract serious enquirers. However the parking on my street is obscenly expensive and I can’t justify keeping her along with my work van.


The car is a 1.4ie. Petrol. Rare high spec with electric windows, decal kit and fully retractable sun roof. Mechanicaly all that’s needed is a new exhaust. She sounds like a broken super bike. Otherwise she drives perfect. Fab engine these! I had a fiat uno with the 1.1 fire. The tipo is larger and more stable at high speeds. Only selling as the money I would spend on her 6 month parking ticket and mot is buying us into the Xantia crew.


I’ve had a few messages tonight so please only text if you have the means to collect her from south London Brixton.

No Mot, no tax, vendor asking ( me) £400.

Scrap price....

Doesn’t know us too well, does he!

What are you going to do send him a foul pm rant like you did to me because I had the sheer audacity to take 3-4 days to arrange a courier to collect some scrap value alloys I had offered you 200 quid for?

Hah! That’s why you were blocked - but curiosity overcame me this once.

No foul rant from me, I politely declined.


His pricing varies from mine.

You however.....common decency prevents an appropriate response, so i’ll Just block you again.

I appreciate that you may find it extremely difficult to part ways with anything and this is what has driven your behaviour, but I equally think you need to consider what it's like to be on the end of a shit storm like that.

Double yelled,


Let’s just recap


You bought Mouseflakes Renault 30. You quickly stated here, volubly, that you couldn’t restore it, but asked for help in storing it- which several members financiallycontributed too- along with offers of space, transport etc. But that was already ‘pre sorted’, wasn’t it? You soon stated, from memory, that you had sold it, which caused a short term storm. Can’t think why? Was that really true?


Sometime later you ask if my “ scrap”Renault 30 alloys - you’ll remember the unused powder coated originals with mint unused Michelin metric tyres- where still available, to which I said yes. You offered £200 (- for that scrap) and whilst quite ill, I ventured south and dug them out- having previously suppllied photos.


Then I read back, and felt uncomfortable supplying parts for a car you still seemingly retained. Additionally, you didn’t pay.. That all felt wrong, to me.


So perhaps the toys did go out. It physically hurt me to extract them, and bring them home,( still there, in the way) and it mentally hurt me knowing the anguish you had caused several on here. So, as you had broken contract, I just cancelled it. Simples


I know you still have the car, and I those “ scrap wheels”- and that’s the way it will stay.


D/yeller Kick off all you like. I don’t like wrong uns. And I’m not talking about the Tipo owner

I'm not actually kicking off - you sent a vile message to me and blocked me immediately thereafter so I couldn't send my response. In so doing you have forced my hand and I will respond to you publicly. If you ventured South, put yourself in great pain etc then that is something you took upon yourself without my asking. I asked you if you wished to sell the wheels, you said yes, I said I would look into courier options and get back to you. Which is what I was doing 3-4 days later when I read your abusive message. Why would I pay for the wheels before agreeing despatch terms with you? Regarding the Renault 30, it's no longer in my ownership but I am still involved in the project, hence...


Sorry, but it's not me who's the wrong'un here. You just need to get a grip, you are not the moral guardian of autoshite here to chastise and control those who you perceive as having sinned.

      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?
