Another Mk1 Mondy... this one's an MOT fail, although apparently nothing corrosion-related.

mostly the normal stuff. The oil leak may well be the oil pressure switch, if it is an easy fix (if you have a ramp, that is).

I have seen that "for sale" quite a few times now. Usually the advert has a daft price and you find that the person is looking for parts. Not sure if they have given up and decided to sell, or perhaps they have finally found the missing parts.

Who was it who was after a black cab?  Here's a chrome bumper FX4 - must be pretty rare these days, although will probably be a bit* rusty.

Oooh and over 40 years old so exempt/free from all* the things, but that sadly does not make it "free" from my financial/medical/storage restraints

I so wish I could just do what this forum does best and go fuck it and buy a shit heap that makes no sense :) this would be my autoshite "heroic" purchase if I could

 

apart from the whole needs recommissioning aspect, its pretty much exactly what "im looking for" in a London  if I could actually afford to get a London Taxi

think of all the fluorescent tubes, lightbulbs streetlights and old computers I could cart around in the back

*sigh*

ill keep the tab open so I have some rough idea what an FX4 like this actually go for these days at least...
