There's an absolutely Mintola one of these where I store my cars. Except it's been sat there for years, so has a thick layer of dust over it and flat tyres. Probably one of the few cars in there that is appreciating more than what the monthly storage fee is.

£395 with a year's ticket. I wonder if it's eligible for classic insurance?

Hmm. It's an XSi but the ad says 170hp. Has it had an engine swap? Disnae look like it. This is a GTi engine:

Bullshitter selling it? I mean, even with the standard 130hp I bet it goes alright.

Yeah, well either a bullshitter or just wrong (more likely?) - description sounds honest enough - as you say should go well and looks a bit of fun for the money. MOT history looks ok...

Probably neither. I wouldn't hold too much faith in Gumtree's "enter your reg to find your vehicle specs"  function.  I've found the details it produces to be completely wrong on numerous occasions.

£395 for any car with 12 months ticket deserves a second glance. I thought the days of finding a £395 130BHP 306 XSI were gone already. I would be on it like a pisshead on a curry if my stable wasn't already maxxed out

Aye, but in this case I'd say the gumtree auto description is more accurate, as only the GTi had 170hp.

 

I'd also be on it like a tramp on chips at that price, but it's all the way down in Devon. Bit far from Aberdeen! I had two 306s in a row years ago (a turbo XUD then an HDi) and loved both of them.

 "car is very unique in its look"

FFS something is either unique or it isn't. 

There are no degrees of uniqueness. 

*slopes off to the grumpy thread.....

Have you asked to see how they do it?
Takes 2 shells to make a proper rally shortie. A 2 door shell to a approx a 6 inches behind the A pillar and the rest backwards from a hatchback shell.  They are probably making a good living from it with the money that sloshes around. Need VERY good welding skills mind. I seem to remember reading somewhere the also narrowed the shell by a foot but I may just be making that up in my addled old brain.

As with MK1 escorts it will not be too long before shells will be made from scratch. There cannot be many 2 door audi 80 b2 shells left in europe.

Yeah to do it properly you need a 2-door  Audi 80 shell (which as you say is rare enough in its own right) for the upright screen and door apertures and a Coupe shell for the rear end. You also need to be very creative in the floorpan department as it’s not just a case of chopping a foot out behind the B pillars. They don’t narrow the shell though - why would they, most of them end up a foot wider by the time the box arches are glued on!

Poor Minor needs love. As previously discussed, “bumperless” look is hard to get right on Minors.

Under the bonnet, however, is easy to perfect something this simple. So no excuse for this mess.

And as for inside...
