Ramrod's Disorganised Diecast Sale

Recommended Posts

Copied over from Shite In Miniature...

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.

Any Majorettes or Spanish - made items Eddy?

Yes.  Majorettes at least, don't think I've got anything Spanish.

 

Anything Vauxhall/Opel? 70s-90s?

At the very least there's a ~Cavalier3/Ascona saloon.  Don't think there will be much else.

 

Any Mercedes saloons?

Not many but it's likely I have one or two.

 

Any Lone-Star Impy or Roadmaster, Eddy?   Any condition as I can use them for spares....

Definitely, and mostly fairly good, amazingly.

 

Any 80’s-90’s BMW’s?

From memory, don't think so, but don't give up hope.

 

Hi Eddy,

 

you got any Bedfords in amongst those Matchbox  cars?

 

thanks Jo x

You mean the CA van/milk float, or Bedford TKs?  There are definitely TKs...

Anything Lesney/Matchbox would pique my interest.  I'm most keen on early Superfast, 70s wedges, and Rolamatics, from the Matchbox ranges.  Anything Lesney, regardless of condition, is welcome.  Broken stuff, plastic accessories, etc. also of use, even if it's been overpainted, as it can help sort out broken stuff I already have.

List, he says.  You'll be lucky, almost all of them are in big boxes in my lockup at the moment.  Dinky will be big enough for me to deal with so they're staying.  Until my eyes deteriorate some more.

 

Did you have a matchbox ford prefect or Wolsley 1500?

 

I used to have decent collection but my dad sold it thinking they were his.

Pretty sure I have the Wolseley but not the Prefect.

 mainly the TK. :-)

Good news, I've already found a TK on my shelves.  It's a BP tanker with a tilt cab, which I think should have an interior but doesn't.  It also doesn't have all the decals it should, but I have a feeling you won't mind that.  Somewhere there will also be at least one Husky TK skip wagon, without skip.

I've been photographing some bigger models today; all 1/18 scale..  Of the five on offer, three have their original boxes.  I'll find suitable boxes for the other two as needed.  Prices are PLUS POSTAGE.

 

Let's start with the cheapest.  I've got a very dusty 1930s Alfa Romeo.

No box with this one but it does seem to be complete, as far as I can tell.  Except for the decals, which have suffered.  Someone want it for a fiver?

 

Next up is a 1973 Cadillac!  Sadly not a Coupe deVille but an Eldorado, in beige.

No box again, and I'm sure you've noticed it's missing part of a front indicator.  Because of that, this one is also a fiver.  I'm taking a loss.

 

Now we're into the boxed cars and they're all the same price, £20 each.  These are all in excellent condition, bordering on mint, although they have spent their lives out of their boxes on display.

2000 Cadillac sedan, brought home from Lanzarote.

1930s Mercedes 540K.  Stylish, elegant, but just doesn't get the displaying it deserves.

As with all the models I'm offering, you can bypass the cost of postage by simply showing up at my door and taking your purchases away in person.  Bonus cuppa included!

      I bought this as a stopgap, its purpose has been filled, and now I need something more economical.
      Its a 2000 Mazda 323F, with a 1.8 petrol engine and auto box (4 speed with lock out in top). Its in decent enough condition, looks tidy, starts, runs and drives with no major issues, decent amount of poke when needed. MoT is till November.  Interior is very tidy and shows little wear. Leccy windows, mirrors, sunroof which all work, AC which does not. The downsides are there are 3 small chips in the windscreen, all less than 10mm. And it could do with a tyre changing on the front as its cracked with age.

      More photos when its stops raining. Oh, and economy-wise it averages around 33mpg with mixed driving, more on a long run.
      Looking for £300 for a sale, or prepared to roffle at £5 if theres enough interest, could do with shifting it relatively quickly though. I'm also up for swaps, preferably for something small, petrol and manual. Small Peugeots are a preference.
      Oh, and its in Lincoln. Sorry.

      Right due to a mixture of life being a pita and the lack of money and space. I really need to get a car shifted before September ideally.
      So although this wasn't in the original plan, what better than me offering two Cars For Sale / Roffles instead ! 
      Plus Points,
       2006 Met Black Fiat Stilo 1.6 petrol Active SW. 4 Owners , 48,912 only with Mot till next April, Starts, Run's + Drives fine and engine seam's to have plenty of get up and go. Clutch is ok too. Brakes seam good inc handbrake. Blowers work ok. Front Leccy Windows + Mirrors. PAS inc City Button, Central Locking, CD player.  Looks to have had a full new Exhaust and Windscreen replacement recently. Tyres all have plenty of tread and spare wheel and tool kit is present. No fault codes on Dash. V5 arrived today in my name. 
      Negative Points,
      Interior isn't great. Worst is being the headlining and rear boot carpet, but is 99% complete. Bodywork has some interesting dents see pics! Also has poor previous repairs to nearside doors and is declared on logbook as being a previous salvaged vehicle.  Nearside front door doesn't lock on the outside but locks fine inside. Tailgate rattles slightly [ needs adjustment ] No service history so Cambelt Roulette at present, but Fiat reckon next change assuming it's had one would be 72K. Clonking / Rattle underneath suspect anti-roll bar joint as advised on last Mot. 
      Despite it's appearances though this car has potential. I feel that with a bit of time invested and a few trips to a scrappy as I'd planned to do, would improve it no end. But otherwise it would make a ideal cheap workhorse / dog carrier etc as is, that would also last you till next April and beyond without too much bother. 
      Car is untaxed but will Sorn if not Sold shortly and no Insurance. 
      Just want back what it owe's me so far. AS price is £350 firm or £6 a Roffle Ticket. 
      If the Cavalier sell's before the Stilo, then I may keep this car as originally intended but we see how things go.  Worst case I'll sell both and have to go Car shopping again! 
      Car located Midlands near Jct 10 M42 at present.

      Hi all,
       
      As you know I've got a new car! 
       
      I like it.
       
      By no means is it perfect but then I didn't expect it to be. I'll dedicate this thread to the Ins & Outs of the 06 plate Saab. 
       
      Looking through the car there is no Service history - So I'll start my own, first job will be Oil & Filters change. Will get it in for reluctor ring change to at some point. There's also an error with the fuel filter, the sensors cover is smashed ergo, its letting water in putting the EML on.
       
      I shall sort those.
       
      Bodywork is fine, Very little in the way of rust/rot. Front bumper has clips missing so a corner below the headlight pops off, no great shakes - but I'll sort it. Alloys have a few scuffs & dings but will clean up nicely. Tyres are all nearly brand new- winter ones too. I need a new passenger side door mirror glass - there's a stick on lens at the moment over the top of the original glass as the original glass is somewhat damaged - I'll get that done soon (ebay).
       
      There's a knack to getting the key in & out of the ignition, put into reverse and then some more whilst lifting key is the trick. Maybe an adjustment can be made to fix that - in time!
       
      Everything electrical seems to work fine!
       
      Freebies: Dashcam (works perfect), Bluetooth system (again working perfectly), tyre compressor machine thing (in the spare wheel well)
       
      It runs & drives fine, no knocks bangs or clunks - and more than powerful enough - second gear it can pin you to your seat! 133k on the clock so its due belts, which will be done ASAP.
       
      It's also very very comfy!
       
      Going to get a full valet at the weekend and a good clean (pics to follow, Before & after).
       
       
      Keep your eyes open for updates!!!!
       

       
       
      PS - Interior shots to come soon!

      Ok, so I've discussed this with mods and they have said it's ok to go ahead.
      There was a book where a writer who was living off his girlfriend's income, decided he was going to start trading his way up with swaps, writing about his experiences along the way, the thing he saw right in front of him was one red paperclip, so that's what he started with. It's a great story and a great book and I thought I would try it.
      This thread is where I will attempt my "red paperclip" challenge and record anything interesting that happens along the way, meeting up to swap wherever possible, though me living in mid Wales does mean I'm a million miles from anyone, so this might not always be possible.
      Not going to use a red paperclip as that's been done, so I'm going to start it off with.....
      A timing tool kit for V8 BMW engines, originally bought to use on a 2003 range rover....
      Same as this:

      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??
