That’s exactly how I remember Silver Fox Metallic Cortinas, Corsairs and Zephyrs looking in the late 60’s early 70’s. The paint fell off within a couple of years.

Why the fuck do people bother? that LDV would make a much better camper if you just slung an old mattress on the floor in the back. If you need a piss, just open the sliding door and piss directly out of it, that's what about 90% of people do anyway.

I did exactly that when I worked in Aberdeen living in my old transit smiley face..... 

 

Loved a piss out of the sliding door as the Shetland ferry went past Torry Mount just before night shift.... 

Happy, but cold days 🤣🤣

Upgraded* to a caravan when I hit the big time.

Maybe ok for the bachelor traveller,  no woman I've ever met would be particularly impressed with the sight of an arc of golden piss glinting in the morning sun when they woke up.

This is 100% shite for here. A very early, BASE spec, miserable engine, what more could you possibly want! I’d forgotten that they even did a 2.3 N/A in the Mk3 carlton. I remember when my last 2.3TDs turbo failed and I drove it for months with no boost at all. It was horrendously slow. Perfect!

I got excited but that's a wreck. Failed MOT twice in 2016 on various serious things (LOTS of structural rust, unsurprisingly) and hasn't been submitted since. I doubt any of it has got better in the last four years.....

Looks like it has been ‘carefully’ *stored for several years

Saloons are the best looking, I had a 1.8 LX which I sold in 1997 with 135,000 miles on, this is barely run in.

A quick run down to the local hand car wash and it will be like new* oh, and bin the offensive wheel trims.

I had a look at the history too, and yes failed twice on structural rot lol. What were they expecting? That they’d miss it second time round lol.

I know, it's not like it was a marginal one like emissions! 

 

That second fail makes me think it's much worse than the MOT history makes it look

A K reg 1.6. Original optional CD changer!

£550 😲

Very early though - registration date is 25/3/93 - a few days after mine was built. It's one of the earliest left, shame it is in such a state. RIP little solja.
