I had one of those in 3dr format,white as well. 

Drove it to Southampton dock auctions on a (later found out) laser printed tax disc and a full tank. 

I thought the gauge was U/S as I'd only had it a week and brimmed it, as no movement occurred until the A34 by around Newbury. 

Drove it back home and still only used 1/3rd of a tank both ways. 

Sold it to a guy in work who gave it to his very attractive but not very bright daughter. He also marveled at the economy having owned a volvo v40 petrol and filling it 3 times for every one compared to the escort. 

Great car but really slow.

There was never* a V6 SRi 

Because of interchangeable parts, there have been built all sorts of combinations. 

My dream would be an omega 3.2 block, with 2.5 auxiliaries from the FWD V6, mated to a 6 speed Turbo gearbox in an early 2.0 4x4 shell, with L trim and steel wheels

So sleeper IRS 4x4 6 speed with about 210 bhp, with bags of torque and grey bumpers. 

I had a 2.0L cavvy saloon.

Only really owned it for a about 3 weeks and it was alright generally, seemed to overheat a lot which I think was thermostat related so I removed it, as you do. 

Lent it to a slightly*  dodgy mate once as it had a towbar. 

The journey went fine and he phoned me up later on the  Sunday asking if he could drop it off the next day, no bother. 

About 2 hrs after that him and his mate were told some kids were ripping about the estate in an old car some idiot hadn't locked up properly and wanted to know if they were after any bits from it? 

Time they fathomed it was my car they'd borrowed, it was smouldering away happily in a field. 

Still, he gave me my £300 back for it. 

Seemingly stood up to a good few hours of abuse..... which meant I was right about the thermostat.

Plus i had a gsi and an ex police v6, the gsi was a better car in every respect, never gelled with the v6 but it plodded on ok. 

One of the hardest cars I ever sold, ended up practically giving it away. 

Worst ever was a mk1 mr2, couldn't shift it back in y2k.

I had the pleasure of first learning to drive in one of these in fields in Devon. First go on clutch and gears. It was a field car affectionately called polly due to the amount of polyfiller in it. 

Just resprayed and parked in a field therefore makes me think the worst.

Phwoar, Great interior!

I worked on these back in the day, this seems to have an old school 680 engine which is way better than the early ones which had a new fangled OHC 500 disaster fitted.

This is too far away for me, but it looks good for £495.

How would you describe that seat pattern? It looks like when a child helps paint a wall.

While other dealers are promising sterilised cars dipped in bleach to combat the 'Rona, this one is providing closeup shots of filth on the touch surfaces.

e: just noticed there's a £95 admin fee too, fuck you

Grot and MOT history aside, that’s still very sensibly priced

I hate the modern world. A lot of the things I like have been watered down and used as a veneer to promote other things.

Everybody is a hippy these days as long as it pays, everybody like an 'alternative 'lifestyle'. Poor old van...

It makes me sad...this should be running along a road in Provance not nourishing the hip ones. 😂 £16,000 and it doesn't drive..

Sigh...rant over.

Yep.

How about fitting out that Leyland National with stained-formica canteen furniture and taking it to Paris for Norah Batty to serve sweet, stewed, milky tea or Camp "coffee" @  €20 per chipped and greasy mug.

 

Now there is an idea...

I remember CAR magazine summing these up when new with the phrase " the prospect of crashing when six up does not bear thinking about".

Nonetheless, still would.  A Hijet/Rascal/Supercarry type van is something I'd quite like to tick off the list.

looks like a blue Sherpa to me, seems legit.

Haha what an absolute crock of shit - I wonder how many cars it took to build that - here’s the bits I could recognise

Sherpa Chassis

Reliant Robin body

Spartan Front end

Xsara Picasso seats

Mercedes wheels and grille
