Mk1 Ford Galaxy 2.0 Aspen - £500 cash/ROFFLE £9.50/or deal.

Recommended Posts

This will be on the road until the end of the month then it'll go back into storage until the i10 gets sold on at the end of April. 

 

Nice old bus but parking is a bit of a ball ache round here. Might consider passing it on in the autumn. Possibly.

Mrs PBK rang me at work to enquire as to why both front windows of the galaxy were fully down, the car was unlocked and why the keys were on the floor of the porch.

 

I had no answer other than I was rushed to get to work after vaxing the front carpet and both seats.

 

No-one nicked anything and the car was still there, so what was the problem eh? Eh?

I think you need to see a doctor if your passing it. Especially if you're expecting to wait till the autumn before you can manage it.

I have the window draught excluder things that will need to be fitted, not sure how though.

 

There is a brand new tow bar assembly for the car that can be obtained for a not unreasonable £70

 

I have a new gear lever gaiter that will come with the car.

 

Front heater control is not operational, everything lights up but no action from the heater system when turned on. The 'hedgehog' is available on eBay and accessed via the glove box. Front cig lighter is not functional, could well be a fuse or the unit itself. haven't looked. 

 

Small ding on the lower bit of the drivers door. Small amount of rusty bleb on the rear N/S were the wheel arch joins the sill, nothing major and is easily fixable. Front grille needs to be refitted properly as I had to dislodge it when opening the bonnet. The catch is lovely and smooth in operation, no issues now whatsoever. The car is a first time starter. Ride is comfy squishy if that makes sense. Mileage is 150 odd thou.

 

Location when for sale or roffle will be the barn near Chelmsford.

I honestly think anything with a full ticket is north of £500 atm - especially considering scrap prices.

 

Why not try a £10 raffle?

 

Maybe it’s worth more. Sadly, these are still in ‘Dingle Bus’ territory so not worth serious money atm. But anyone with more children than eyes surely would fancy a pop for £10.

Hmm, okay. £9.50 per ticket sounds a bit more realistic.

 

Okay, worth a go I guess. I'll sort it at the end of the month, payday and all that as it might be less 'urrgghhh' for most folk at that point.

 

Thanks.

I admire you, really I do.  But it's a 50p saving which is gonna cost you £30.  Props to you tho - you're a better man than I!!

It's more of a psychological thing to help encourage other shitters that it is indeed a bit of a billy bargain at £9.50 rather than £10. Might make all of the difference between a roffle frenzy and a roffle wasteland of nothingness.

      I’m not sure if there’d be much interest in a roffle for a topless mills o’matic swede at this time of year but before I stick it down at the barn for winter, I thought I’d mention it on here...
      Its a 2006 9-3 1.8t with just under 90k miles and a good service history. It has been Mrs NMs summer chariot of choice but has now been stood down by a Berlingo diesel...the backup plan is to park it up over winter before prepping it up for sale in the spring where it would get advertised for its market value but due to the impending arrival of another toy, if someone on here wants to win it for the frankly ludicrous sum of £12.00, then step right up!!
      Good bits...
      All electrics, roof etc in good order, decent tires all round, plenty of MOT, working air con, polishes up nicely, will come with new discs and pads on the front.
      Not so good bits...
      Silly tax bracket so £48 a month to tax, occasional lambda fault which pops on EML....will reset and stay off for a month or two, slight bit of pogweasleing on the n/s front bumper where it’s had a smart repair in the past.
      Only got a few pictures to hand at the minute but if there’s any interest, I’ll stick some more up in the next day or so.
      Roffle tickets as it is are £12 each or two for £20 and the car is located near Burnley, Lancashire.
      Form an orderly queue.... 🙂

      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.....

      Going to roffle for a fiver a ticket, two for £8, 3 for £11
      In good working order apart from the head gasket. 
      Put the ventilated header tank cap on, take it easy and bring spare water and you will be able to drive it home. 
       
      It doesn't overheat, just pressure in the cooling system. Cylinder compression is good.

      This has been dragging with the end tantalisingly in sight, so inspired by the worthy @SRi05 I'll pop it in here and see if anyone who doesn't visit 'Shite For Sale' is interested...
       
      Quoting now...
       
      After having recently gone through the fun* of selling a car on eBay, I thought I'd try my luck on here. I only bought this a couple of weeks ago on a whim, thinking it would be ideal for shooting down to France with the wife and the dog to visit the in-laws, but the wife has taken against it HARD due to the lack of air-con (she's not worried about us - it's the dog!). So it has to go.
      Bad bits first, as is AS tradition. The A/C really is gone. No amount of re-gassing will fix this! A few patches of rust here and there - none look bad enough for welding. A bit of rust converter and bondo and job jobbed was my plan. Laquer is starting to peel in a few places. The remote central locking doesn't always unlock the passenger side door (although it does always seem to lock it, which is odd). Tailgate has a decent dent in it. Nothing to do with me, it came free with the car. Tailgate still works fine, though.
      Good bits. Maybe it has been too long since I was last in a rear-wheel drive, but it feels to me like it pulls away from the line very nicely. The six-speed box feels nice and precise, and lets you trundle along at 70mph with the engine only doing about two and a half thousand revs (not had it long enough to really measure fuel efficiency). MOT until Feb and taxed to get you home.
      Located in Ipswich. I was thinking £9 per ticket, or two for £16, three for £21. Any takers?
       
      PRICE DROP !!!!
      £8 for one, £14 for two, £19 for three. Buy Buy Buy!!!!
