Small ‘Project’/Car Wanted...please...

Recommended Posts

I am after a car preferably smallish for ease of storing (I have a garage that was made for cars back when they were all very small) - just after something I can play about with...

 

Nothing too rusty please

 

Don’t have much to spend but am after something like a K10 Micra or something of equivalent size...

 

What have you got...?

 

Thank you,

Hi, I have my 1993 Fiat Uno 1.1 which I've yet to start on. An alas it is firmly at the back of the que, in regards to being fixed up just at the minute.

 

post-21523-0-62718900-1551992957_thumb.jpg

 

As it needs some work for the Mot, and the heater fixing as it only works sometimes when it feels like it!!

 

So I've got a brand new genuine Fiat heater resistor, and a fan for the heater which I had to get from Italy. Also throttle cables stretched a bit, or is sticking. Have a brand new genuine Fiat one though, which I will pass on.

 

For the Mot it needs the rear turrets welding, two front brake hoses and a front subframe. I have 2x brake hoses, rear turret repair panels, and a brand new subframe which has now been powder coated. The tester did say the headlights were incorrectly adjusted, and the cv boot clip insecure. However he said he'd adjusted the lights, and the cv boot looked alright to me so maybe they did that as well.

 

Rear wheel arches, sills and doors are rot free which is amazing!! Interior is good, no rips or tears, electric windows an a Grundig radio.

 

Got a wad of history, receipts and books along with two keys. There was one lady owner from new, until I bought it. I did get a brand new clutch fitted, when I first bought the car as the original was shot!!

 

Not sure how much, but if it's going to a good home I might consider an offer. As it'll probably sit another 12 months if I'm honest which is a shame, car is stored not far off J9 of the M42.

Ford Ka will be available for scrap monies (£100) pretty soon. Needs tiny patch on sill..and strut mounts are shot. As a project its a decent base for a 1.7 puma engine... would make a nice wee sleeper

What kinda problem?

 

It died on me all of a sudden after driving faultlessly all morning. The instruments started to flicker and the radio went off. I pulled over to check and it wouldnt start again. Connected jump leads and all was fine again. I put a plug in voltage meter into cig socket and every now and then the voltage reading drops from 13.8 down to about 11.0 so i suspect the alternator is on the road out. Thought it best to let you know since you had shown interest previously

      Orignial post:
       
       
       
      so how do I start this post off well...
       
      to cut to the chase I know of a picture that was taken 9 years ago and its a picture of an abandoned invacar and I have been trying to find said invacar for reasons that are probably quite illogical    (also some slight sentimental ones)
       
      heres the picture in question
       
      I have managed to stalk track down the person who took the photo, and he said that it was by an art studio on fish island bow (which is hipster-central FYI) (the photographer is currently on holiday apparently, but said that when he gets back he will go through his archives and see if he has a reg plate shot)
       
      so the other day I went to fish island and had a good old fashion hunt  (and utterly did my back in) but sadly I was unable to find it despite finding plenty of other chod.
       
      so Im wondering if any of you guys might have any idea where this invacar is or what might of happened to it?
       
      the sentimental reasons why I want to find and save this/get an invacar is because when I was about Age 3 I saw an invacar parked up by the side of the road and it was the the first car that ever stood out to me made me go "WTF is that?" (but in 3 year old words, I didn't learn the middle finger until i was 4 ) to which my mum said "its a car for disabled people" (which 3 year old me took as, "all cars with 3 wheels where built for disabled people" so I also thought for a long time that reliant robins where built for disabled people too...)
       
      the "illogical" reasons are that well I have never owned a car before... and I think an invacar would be a good simple vehicle for me to cut my teeth on so to speak, and then once I got it going I could "daily it" as a small run about, since ironically enough I have a bad back which prevents me from doing much outside of the house otherwise... also owning a car in Central London is a horrible idea but if you must, best it be a small compact car right?   (and also hopefully its cheap to have/run as well...) 
       
      also finally its also a case of I Just want to do SOMETHING, my chronic back injury has meant that I have been housebound for the last 5 years or so and I just want to fucking do something... and what better to do then to try and find and save a historically important vehicle thats also proper autoshite  (this also leads to, even if I cant personally save it, I hope that its at least found and persevered by someone here but ideally id like to grab it )
       
      PS while out and about looking for the invacar I came across this yard in fish island which seemed to have some traveller type people mulling around about in, I was hoping to ask one of them if they knew about the invacar since they seemed to of been the sort of person who might know about it sadly I could not find a way into the "compound",I also grabbed this shot since my inner bus person wonders what that coach is? sadly I could not grab a reg plate shot, for those wondering as well the thing with the blue tarp roof looked like a pretty old Lorry but I could not get a good view of it sadly, there where also some cars and broken transits sitting around.
       

       
      so yeah I hope you all dont mind me making this post I know its a bit far fetched so to speak (the picture WAS taken almost 10 years ago and fish island has been quite heavily redeveloped since then I think)...
       
      but I am stubborn bastard so I hope to find it still

      First my brother in law had a problem with his Volvo:
       
      http://autoshite.com/topic/34710-2007-volvo-v70-d5-24-automatic-sold-new-owner-updates/?fromsearch=1
       
      Then, earlier this week, someone broke into his house, found keys to his BMW and drove away in this:
       

       
      There’s no way of knowing whether the BMW will ever be found.
       
      BIL now urgently needs a reliable automatic estate car, MoTd and running, for up to £1k and located as close to High Wycombe as possible.
       
      Does anyone know of a suitable steed?

      Bit of an SOS here. I've got a couple of item's I've won on eBay in far flung locations and my work shedule has conspired to make collection difficult. I'd hoped to collect them on some upcoming cross country trip but unfortunately my employer has other ideas....
       
      They have the flexibility to stand up the workforce to work 6 day weeks and have also extended our weekday working hours. They are blaming Brexit and trying to push production volumes as high as they can before the leave date.
       
      I've got two collections outstanding and was wondering if theres anyone local who could collect on my behalf and either post onwards, or sit on them until I'm able to collect. Happy to cover any expenses. Petrol / Post / Beer Money.
       
      The Items are industrial lights, 
       
      The first Item is in Prestatyn - The Seller has said collection from Chester is also a possibility, they are 3 Fluorescent tube lights.
       
       
      The second Items is in Lewisham, SE14 6QD, South london. And is a pair of explosion proof lights [ PLAN IN PLACE ]
       
      If your able to help please pm me.
       
      Cheers
      Joe
