1992 Proton 1.3 GL - £695

Recommended Posts

Hola, 

Want a slice of Malaysian action? Of course you do, that's why you're looking at this mighty steed. Namely my 1992 Proton 1.3GL, or Saga if you want the proper term. 

It's minty fresh with only 24,000 on the clock. V5 is here and in my name. It's very green. The interior is very brown. It's all very nice though. I bought it as a car that had been laid up for a number of years. I dragged it to my unit, gave it a full service, fitted new steering rack boots and then put it through its MOT (has about eight months left) which it passed with ease. The only advisories were tyre-based, as they're a bit old. They still do the job though. Just don't go trying to set any land-speed records and you should be fine. 

 

It has a silly green steering wheel and a silly green gear-knob, but I still have the stock parts. The only other notable upgrade is the stereo, which is a wonderfully '90s Sony unit with a ten disc changer. this is paired up to a set of boxed 6x9s on the rear shelf. Oh, and I've fitted a quick-shift kit to it, as the throw on the standard gears was comically long. 

 

I love this little thing, but need to free up funds. You will not find a cleaner one, if you can find one at all. It starts on the button thanks to a new battery and as such, it'll take you anywhere. 

 

The only downside is the front passenger door, which is rippled after a car-park altercation some years ago. I can point you in the direction of a new door, though. 

£695 takes it. If not, I'll hide it away. 

Anyway, pictures...

Moody DSLR shots are great and all that and everything changes but you...

 

But...

 

It’s always nice to see what’s what. Know what I mean?

 

Come on man. I’ve got a semi, and you can’t play snooker with a rope.

If that was a 1.5 I would definitely be itching to snag it...even though the wheel and gear knob...just no. Very much not my style!

 

I really, really want another one of these in my life at some point but really worry they're going to go all Metro and go out of my price range before I manage to get one.

Ha! As I say, I do have all the original stuff still. Happy to put it back on.

 

And yeah, it's no 1.5, but honestly, the 1.3 is lovely.

      My Compact is up for sale again, MOT until November.
      Manual, 2l turbo diesel, 165k miles.
      £750

      I've replaced a load of stuff over the years, been meticulous with servicing. Brand new turbo, crank pulley, injectors, inlet seals, handbrake mech, vortex filter etc). It had a new BMW battery from dealer a couple of years ago. New black kidney grilles. New spare wheel, toolkit, books, wallet, first aid kit box etc
      Swirl flaps in the inlet have been blanked. Has black M-sport alcantara interior, with bucket seats (fully adjustable) and leather bits. It's really clean inside and out. Cool fold out rear windows like old Japanese cars but they’re auto electric powered
      17" E90 alloy wheels with four 5 month old Landsail tyres
      Two keys, service/manuals, dealer keyring, etc.

      The only things wrong with it:
      the glow plug ECU is reporting a fault.
      The front bumper is stone chipped.
       It has always started first turn of the key in whatever weather in the four years I've had this, so I'm sure the glow plugs are working, but it's just giving an error. It has had this fault in INPA since I've had it.

      It shifts quite well with 150bhp, I've managed 70 - 80mpg on a gentle run over 200 miles, but always get an average of 60mpg. There's no rust on the car, it's pretty mechanically sound I've done close to 70k miles in it I think. Only the crank pulley has failed on me in that time.

      First some background:
      I was brought up with no car interest, a car was transport and nothing more which resulted in a selection of poor cheap cars being the cars of my youth.
       
      Fast forward many years (just over 9 years ago) and I have a wonderful* Vauxhall Vectra estate to carry us about. Unfortunately it is crap and throws fault codes at us with nothing being there when it is checked (even at Vauxhall)
       
      As Mrs T is the main pilot of this chariot with the two little miss T's on board, it has to go.
      The hunt is on for the new steed to safely and comfortably carry the family around. I have a company car at the time so big journeys are not an issue.
       
      ebay is my weapon of choice to find the new family car. It has to be good value cheap for no other reason than I am tight.
       
      Weeks of research with lots of cars that are too expensive and too far away for easy collection end up in my watch list.
      Finally a possible is spotted in Fife. I go and have a look and find a poor looking but solid car. One previous owner and lots of history.
       
      The auction was to end on the Saturday at midday, we were going to be out! I decided on how much I was willing to gamble on it and on the Saturday morning I put in my max bid but straight away it went to my max bid, I was winning but it had three hours to go with no room for me to go up! We went out anyway.
       
      I spent the next three hours kicking myself for not bidding more while we were out as it was the first car I had seen that fitted my criteria. Fate was in charge.
       
      On returning home I go straight on ebay to find 'Congratulations.............'
      For the grand total of £500 I had just won this fine vehicle!
       

       
      It has 5 months MOT and after fitting seat belts in the rear for the girls car seats it is pushed into daily service.
      My gamble and subsequent use results in a perfectly reliable car that actually does what it is supposed to do.
       
      Even more importantly Mrs T loves it so a win all round.
       
      All my cars have names (most are earned over a bit of time) and this one is called 'Gwendolen' ( G reg car and from Wales originally. I hate the name but I am not going to argue)
       
      That sums up part one, more will be along later (probably much later)

      Copied over from Shite In Miniature...
      Note for future reference...  I've decided most of my Matchbox (-sized) cars can go.  It's a vast collection,   Most have been repainted at least once - by me, obviously.  My eyes and hand aren't good enough to do them again.  I've got way too many to list so ask if there's something you want and if I've got it, we can do a deal.  Most will be 50p each plus postage, so it'll make sense to build up a parcel.
       
      I thought it best to do this, then I'm not clogging up the main thread.  This could well go on for months.
