Ramrod's Disorganised Diecast Sale

Recommended Posts

Don’t suppose you have any Capri’s left do you?

That's it for Capris, I'm afraid.

 

Have you discovered any more old Matchbox or corgi in your lock up Eddy?

I haven't been over since my last posting but I will probably go at the beginning of next week, so stay tuned, there may very well be more!

I've been over to the lockup again, and I think I must have all or nearly all of the cars out of there now.

So those are the cars, usual rates apply (Matchbox size 50p, Corgi size £1, postage extra).  The rates are arbitrarily adjustable.

 

But now, here's a treat, a GENUINE BBC DOCTOR WHO costume!  Well part of one anyway, a jacket/waistcoat.

Made for Jonathan Adams to wear in an episode called "The Robbers," it turned up in a costume auction that my sister attended many years ago, and because it wasn't complete (this is all there was) she and her husband decided not to keep it in their extensive sci-fi collection, so they passed it on to me.  I've never worn it, and probably never will, not least because I've put on weight since then.  ("Then" being about 1993-4)  It's beautifully made, nylon scales lined with cotton and trimmed with suede.  The suede has gone a bit mildewed but I'm sure could be rescued by someone who knows what they're doing.  It should be fastened by lacing, which I think is supposed to go up the wearer's back, but there was no lacing with it when I got it.  What's it worth, a tenner plus post?

Holy shit!

Want, but may have to wait until payday.

As you may have figured, I'm a bit of a 'Whovian'

That's fine, when is payday?  I've had this 25 years or so, another week or two won't matter.

I'm pleased to report the jacket arrived safely, thanks to Sealtainn for letting me know.

Meanwhile... I went to a car show yesterday (and got sunstroke, ffs...) and took some boxes to lay out on Huggy's bonnet.  Most of my Matchbox etc stock, my three remaining sale 1/18s and some Haynes books.  The 1930s Alfa sold, as did quite a lot of the small cars, and I came out something like twenty quid up.  I've left the stock in the car for next time.  Must also remember to keep my hat on!

I've now done a couple more events with stock spread out on or around Huggy, and I reckon each time I've sold enough to cover my petrol.  In a Cadillac!  That's pretty good.  The batch of Husky models a few posts back is still here if anyone fancies them.

Done.  See, I said something else might take your fancy! :)  You're up to 9 now.

It looks like I've just about reached the end of this clearance, so I'm prepared to start packing up the small orders that are left, yours being one of them.

PM blitz coming up: stand by Noel Tidybeard, Christine, Picketlinefeelingfine, Blakey79, Marvin'sMom, CMS206.

What’s left from the sale eddy? 

Still two of the 1/18s: the modern Cadillac and the 1930s Mercedes.  In the small stuff, surprisingly little.  I'll spread them out later today and do a photo.  I offered a bloke on FB some Corgi/Dinky stock at £1 each and he hasn't got back to me, so they can go in this sale now.

674403059_LMM919003.thumb.jpg.0465c653c7d676d10ac42210f7581c4c.jpg

L-R: Corgi Jeep FC150 pickup (this came in a job lot from another Shiter but I've already got three in my sale box); Corgi Toyota Corolla; Corgi Oldsmobile Toronado; Corgi Oldsmobile police car; Dinky Studebaker President; Corgi 1/36 Jag XJ12C police car, dismantled but complete apart from the lightbar on the roof, which has gone missing.

Any of that taking your fancy?

OK, photography done.

1658772466_Sep001.thumb.jpg.222cd07f3b024f8d2d805a0e1713405e.jpg

The three Jeeps on the back row are £1 each, same as the other Corgis I already showed you.  The four rows of smaller stuff, all 50p each.

Now the next lot....

1274807296_Sep002.thumb.jpg.de4c76e4e5c3326fad8c69e6a0369170.jpg

...is mostly junk, really, 10p each if you can make any use of them.  Mostly 1/43-ish.

Now then...

1612839932_Sep003.thumb.jpg.1f3b4830fadc6707f6730c6af5051cda.jpg

Britains Land Rover LWB!  Scale is 1/32.  The blue one is pretty good except for missing the canopy and driver.  The red one has no chassis, so it's just for spares really.  Fiver the pair?

And then...

1458110772_Sep004.thumb.jpg.6d5026a5be19d91aaec6f7acf282a02f.jpg

I believe I mentioned this up-thread: Corgi 1/36 Mercedes taxi.  50p for this one.

And finally....

36660727_Sep005.thumb.jpg.4410baf4bbe00cd1045735e25c2a608a.jpg

Yesteryear Cord, ripe for restoration.  £1 for this.

All prices plus postage; usually £3.  Paypal details by PM, and don't forget to give me your address!

      Loving home sought, must sell through no fault of its own etc.
      I have a 54000 miles (ish) 2002 K11 Micra 1.0 CVT 'S' for sale, it has factory alloy wheels and an aftermarket stereo/CD player (not too bad actually). For the uninitiated, the CVT gearbox is like a twist and go jobby, put your foot down and you whisk off surprisingly quickly for a 1.0! There are no gears as such, but there is a sport button - and it actually makes a difference! A surprising one. It being a 2002 facelift K11, you get a better ignition system (no dizzy, individual coils etc), a sleeker look, doorcards that the fabric peels off of and a CVT gearbox that is not made out of cardboard like the earlier N-CVT types. The engine is chain driven, so no belts to worry about.
      I bought this in April for mum to mooch around in as she's having a difficult time just now, a few mobility and financial issues (not a great combo!) and so I bought this for her, but also for me to mooch about in when I don't want to use the Hearse. It's no longer required as mum's situation has improved, and she's now bought herself something. So I have Nubbins back, but need the funds back from it which is sad because I really quite like it. A big surprise to me, IS NOT SHIT! My sister had these for her first few cars back when they really weren't worth anything, hers were all totally shit and she accidentally did quite well with the bangernomics philosophy, binning them when they were about to fall apart into small rusty pieces, needed a clutch etc.
      So, it has almost full-service history, it was MOT'd and serviced in March this year, it had a new full exhaust system in 04/2017 (even though only the rear box was blowing) and a full set of tyres in 08/2017, a new LHS caliper in 2016. It seems to have been very well looked after by the PO and previous owners, the PO had it since 2015 (the invoice for £2245 is in with the SH) but their dog got too big to fit in it! So, the logical thing to do was get a Skoda Roomster, cos they're roomy right? It's in the name and everything. My gain, I won the ebay auction for a smidgen over a grand, and when I picked it up the PO was very apologetic that it had an empty petrol tank, so gave me £50 for fuel - lovely people they were. The lady's husband (yes, a careful lady owner - not ragged or anything) had a collection of stuff, a Disco 3 (Shit rather than shite methinks), Volvo P1800 (gorgeous), S-Type and Merc C250d estate that had been to the moon and back. That's not mentioning the farm shite, many pieces or machinery, tractors, agricultural items I didn't know what they were etc.
      Apologies for the dirty, shit pictures - I haven’t had time to clean it yet and it still has a load of mum’s crap in there! Will clean, tidy and post better pictures when time allows - possibly Monday.


      The drivers front wing has a dent, the door card fabric has come unstuck from the card itself and there is a small crack in the front bumper RHS lower corner (wasn't there when I bought it!). Otherwise it is a very smart little thing, with low miles, no rust that I have found (or been reported at MOT time) and so should keep motoring on for some time. Mum has been all over the south west in it, I have been up to Bristol and back once a week for the last month (160 mile round trip) so have total confidence in it - it will sit at 70+ on the motorway quite nicely, although steep hills make it a bit revvy and noisy. It's a 1L though bruv, innit.
      It owes me £1K, I need to sell it to pay for university tuition fees and need the funds back for this purpose. Any shiters want a punt? Offers accepted. Is located in East Coker, Somerset and isn’t taxed or insured atm.

      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??

      From a recent haul. This first lot 50p each + postage. More to come.













    • By dozeydustman
      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.....
