Citroen bx 17rd for sale. Sale on hold as its done a Citroen the little bastard!

Recommended Posts

Right, it's definitely going to happen. Due to poor health and too many cars I'm going to part with Bleriot the 17rd. Has a very short MOT but drives really nicely albeit it's not the most refined. Had a new clutch cable recently, and one of the front to rear pipes done. Could really do with welding on the front inner wings and a small inch square patch on a rear doorstep but went through last MOT with no advisories for this. Photos do flatter him a bit, but it is presentable. Interior is nice and clean although one seat base is getting thread bare now. No power steering and no sunroof but does have electric windows. Would like 450 for him and he's in Coventry

Yes, the RD is basic XUD non turbo. My dad had three sequentially when I was learning to drive. Not fast by any means, but as an 18 year old it’s fast enough. Originally he had a c reg 19rd, then the three 17s and lastly a 19TXD. Not one had a single problem mechanically ( the spoiler on the TXD needed a few repaints under warranty, and some idiot hit it side on whilst I was driving )

Not going to roffle. MOT is out in two weeks and I doubt it would be done by then. If I can get rid of my Xm quickly I might bang it in for a mot and see what it needs. Obviously price would go up then with a full MOT though hence offering it now. I'm pretty confident it will go through on the inner wings as it did last year as I hid the rust spots under sound deadening.

Are you in the CCC? If not then Tim is the relevant contact ( bx at citroencarclub.org.uk) and mention I sent you.

I am really in two minds about selling it. Trouble is when you have a fleet of cars they need constant attention and my health is getting worse. Not having a garage means at this time of year I can't do much. If it was warm out I'd be getting the welding sorted and re mot'ed. Having 3 months of not doing anything from July onwards last year due to surgery means it never got done. Plus dragging the welder down the garden bloody cripples me at the moment. Having a knackered spine is really starting to piss me off

A few photos from this morning

Rust spots on offside rear wing, they've never grown in my ownership and the wing feels solid to the touch.

Inner wings look fine line this, the rust is hidden under the sound deadening.

Interior, the dash has faded on the nearside so it looks dirty but it isn't

Well now I'm wishing I had a really nice AX to part ways with.  I'm stuck for funds without more time and/or selling the Rover, otherwise I'd already be shoving money in your face for this.  It's close to my ideal BX spec, so close I'd even be willing to dip my toe into diesel ownership again.

 

GLWTS anyway.

It's just rubbish timing.  If it had come up for sale a couple of weeks ago I'd already own it.  If it came up for sale in a couple of weeks time, I'd buy it.  But right now this minute, I'm stuck.  So I'm digging around and seeing what I can sell and borrow and whatnot.  The asking price is no money at all, unless you don't have it at that exact moment and then it's all the money ever.

 

It's incredibly frustrating.  I just know I'm going to miss out on this.

      Well, OK, just a few brochures for sale, after having sorted through my pile over Christmas.
       
      The postage price will vary according to weight, so the prices below exclude postage - we'll sort this out in PMs. Obviously, if anyone wants more than one, I'll send them together. All are in excellent condition, with some very minor age related creases.

      Departarting from the norm, I'm being lazy and have actually managed to convince the seller to deliver to my house at no cost. It's only the other side of town but haven't got the time to collect today.

      2 hour countdown starts at 9am
