Invacar MK12 - I has V5!

Recommended Posts

Thanks, that is definitely the right direction. Appreciated. Can you please PM me your postcode 95 quid, and I'll get some shiply quotes to yours as well, which may be more advantageous (only 40 miles).

 

Thanks.

I've called this morning and provisionally agreed the purchase - he won't take any money from me as they are having some problems with their bank, but I have at least a verbal agreement that it is mine, for what it is worth. I still think there is potential for him to change his mind, so will have to take him at his word.

 

They will use a telehandler to get it off the ridge, and I've agreed to arrange transport in the next week or so.

 

shit is getting realer.

 

This is brilliant. I'm excited!

 

Could do a quote with these for comparison purposes:

Egg, are you not in a position to take delivery at the moment?  Surely it'd be a lot easier to just get it picked up and brought down to yours, rather than faffing about dropping it half way and then getting it Shiply'd the rest of the way at a later date?

the 200 £ offer sounds good enough ,job jobbed  vs scratching about trying to save a tenner

 

get it got before he changes his mind

 

ought to edit out the seller incase others try and offer more and steal it from you

Yeah, this is very much my way - faff around during the process, but once I've made a decision, it will happen!

 

I wanted to keep my Mondeo off road for the rest of the salty season - but I guess this takes immediate precedence.

 

I still only have one quote on the table for the full journey from shiply. I wonder if it is because I listed it under 'other vehicles' rather than cars. We'll see, there might be a flurry on Sunday night as drivers set up their work for the week (though I know most of these guys work 24/7)

Oooh this is getting properly exciting :) im looking forward to seeing some Mk12 action on here :) (now we just need someone to get a Tippen Delta and someone else to get a Model 67 and we will have the whole "trifecta" of the last villiers invalid carriages before the Model 70 showed up)

 

it might be time for plasticvandan to spill all he knows about Mk12s

 

because if Model 70 info is scarce, Mk12 info is even scarcer sadly, plus I thoroughly enjoy any invalid carriage info I can get my hands on :)

 

(on that note, I THINK Zel might have a brake hose thingy for a Mk12 invacar)

Well I could potentially go and get it from the yard next Saturday, assuming availability of suitable assistance for loading into the van, but I wouldn't be able to store it.  Depends on what Shiply comes up with I suppose.

 

Funnily enough Dave, I'm free next Saturday if you need a hand lifting etc.

I'm conscious I've generated plenty of heat here, I hope this comes off!!!

 

A few quotes from 'delivery quote compare' for the whole journey, best is £240 to date.

 

I'm going to be £500 into this without having seen it...ace.

 

I think next step is to pay the fiver to promote the journey on Shiply, I have had success with this before, I'll do that shortly.

 

I think we have a back up plan though from Wuv, Barmatt and 95 quid, which I'm grateful for, but even better if I can get it before next weekend.

I’m 30 mins away and have a tow bar, not sure how I can help but still.. exciting!

 

I could hire a van and do the delivery next weekend but there would need to be a few quid on top of van hire (£85 a day) plus fuel

I'm always up for a random retrieval / resurrection missions. It's been at least 6 days since Wuv and I did this and I'm hankering to relive it.

Alternative back-up plan = pre booked MOT

 

tis MOT exempt :)

 

but you might want a bottle of 2 stroke oil for the pez shot... (do any petrol stations sell premix anymore?)

 

good thing the fact it has only half a floor doesn't matter because its driven from entirely 1 hand  :mrgreen: (how exactly im still not 100% sure...)

 

its probably not heel n toe, more finger n thumb...

I thought the reason for taking it to £95Pug's was that you didn't actually want it at yours yet?

It's not my preferred option Wuv, but as yet have had no quotes on the shorter journey to 95Pug's - so resigning myself a bit to the fact if I go for a courier, it might be all the way to my lock-up.

 

The other thing I've been thinking about is how to unload it my end if I hire a van....

      I think the Broadsword fleet has become sufficiently complicated to merit a combined thread so that gradually all new additions will appear in one place.

      A Range Rover P38, which is turning out to be really rather good.
       
      And to mix things up even more I'm off on a collection caper today. Had first refusal on it and was expecting it to come around in a year, but things soon changed and no way was I going to pass up on it. It may well render the second Xantia redundant as I've got a really good feeling about this motor.
       
      In the meantime here are some snaps of the Range Rover. As usual it was a car I said I would probably never buy due to their reliability*. I have said the same of Jag XJR, XJS, XK8 and I have had all of those now. Basically the moment I declare buying a particular car is impractical or improbable, I end up buying one.
       
      Things to note on the P38. It's a nice colour with tidy body. The EAS has been removed. It runs and drives lovely and it doesn't have enough electrical problems to hinder progress. The main one is the driver's side window not working, but that should be fixable. I've tried changing the outstation, that didn't fix it. Might be wiring under the seat. Other than that I bought it and took it for an MOT the very next day, and it passed. Since then it had what seemed like a battery drain, but since unplugging the RF thingy for the remote locking and putting on a proper lead-acid battery, which the car can actually charge, unlike the modern lead-calcium batteries, it has been perfect. I will treat it to a full service soon.
       
      Stay tuned for the latest collection later today!

      Hi all, new to the forum.  Thought you might be interested in what I've got myself into
      I'd been after my first classic car for a while.  If it's big and made in the 70s I'm interested.  Looked at few things like P6s, Zodiacs, Victors, SD1s and various other things.  Problem was I didn't want to spend a boatload of money on something that looked alright but underneath was actually a total heap.  The solution was to buy a complete heap in the first place and spend the money fixing it.
      So in January I went ahead and bought this from a colleague at work who was moving away and needed to get shot of it.

      It's a part finished restoration (I prefer not started) and it needs a whole load of help if it's going to stand any chance of using a road again.
      Pros
      It's right up my street.  Granada Coupes are quite odd and certainly stand out from the norm.
      It still has the original engine, box, interior and most trim.
      It came with loads of panels I need to repair it (mostly original Ford stock).
      It came with so many spares I could probably build a few Granadas and still have stuff left over.
      It was cheap.
      Cons
      Most of the front end has been cut off.
      Most of the body structure is quite rotten.
      It's going to take me ages.
      I work at a restoration company and my boss kindly allows me to keep the car there.  So I've got access to all the gear I need to restore it.  I've been busy on the car for a while now so will post more pics over the coming days.
      Cheers

      After lurking here for a short while, frankly liking what I see and enjoying the various shite, the site has well and truly struck a chord with me. I'm a serial buyer of ropey sub £1k vehicles, don't have to but genuinely enjoy it.
       
      I feel like I might (Just might) have found my 'spiritual' home here
       
      I've been posting across the web on owner specific forums (Usually using either my JoeyEunos or RandomPrecion handles) for a while now, but from here-on-in I will pull my threads together and merge them here into one ghastly topic.
