Another F'in MGF Roffle....sorrynotsorry - 1996 MGF Red 1.8 MPI

Recommended Posts

So...I thought id Roffle off my MG F, its a fairly early car being an N reg 1996 car number 7400 of 77000 made.

Its red, has leather seats, its done 110k, 10 months MOT. its been welded around the sills so at least that wont need doing. There is a receipt for HG, stainless pipes so that doesn't need doing. Front brakes are ebc grooved discs and green stuff pads, rears are brand new. It was once owned by the editor of MG enthusiast mag and she had a load of work done and it was mag featured. Ive done a stack of work to it including full major service. Its got later TF wheels with good matching tyres. Its amazing fun to drive and always makes me smile. Its kinda useless to me as i have a wife and two kids but some how ive racked up 1500 miles in 2 months and used it as my daily during this time. I've fitted a K&N along with the 52mm throttle, its got the sought after roof with rear glass and heated screen in mint condition. With it being a hydro gas car the units were low on gas so these have been swapped with re gassed units it now rides lovely. I fitted the rear speaker bar because i could....I don't want to sell it but kinda feel i should due to the fact i get shouted at every weekend by the wife because i can't take my kids out in it so i have to steal her car, if i'm honest its worth the pain. Its insured as a classic so costs bugger all. If 59 people want it for £13.50 a ticket then ill let fate decide. If not ill just left the wife shout at me some more. I could probably deliver it to the winner because its fully legal.... Located in Nottingham

You say that but it basically got advisories on the end of the sills for around 4 years before they fell in holes. I got it at that point and welded both rear sills in front of the wheel arch. All a bit boring for one of these lol the rot was cut out and a plate formed and welded in.

 

MOT history shows plenty of corrosion related stuff. Admittedly this may well have been sorted now. But a bit more info on the repairs may be useful for folks buying a ticket or two?

For £13.50 I’d want to see pics of the stamped service book too. Deal breaker at £27 IMO.

      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!!!!

      Well after almost 11 years it time to part ways with my Cavalier as recent changes mean I'm needing a estate car now. 
      It's in tidy condition for it age and years but is no show car, though saying that I get plenty of nice comments off people about it which is nice!  Will be really sad to see it go as it's been a fantastic car to me and has always been a dependable friend. Holidays, house moves, days out, road trips buying tat or being on family taxi duty. It does it all without fuss. 
      I have folders full of various receipts and bills for work carried out over the years and have got various spares mainly used that I can include if wanted.  I also have a compete spare 1.8 engine with 74,000 miles available too. 
      Mileage is 204,000 but I did replace the engine with a secondhand unit about a year after first buying it with similar miles due to a oil pressure fault.  Though I've seen these Cavaliers with over  250,000+ miles and I have no issues with driving this car anywhere as these are hardy things. 
      I've always serviced the car each year and always use a quality 15w40 oil.   In recent years it had all new shocks/ front springs and top mounts. Front Brakes and had various other parts replaced as needed to keep it ticking over. 
      Has Pas, leccy front windows and central locking. Also has working Towbar see pic bellow. 
      There so much more I can say but I'd be here all night!
      Currently awaiting some Mot repairs to sort out emissions [ replace front downpipe ] and some minor welding to the rear floor pan . It should be ready for me to collect by Friday.  Any questions just ask away. Will add some pictures over the weekend once I've got the Car back. Still Insured till the end of May and Taxed etc.
