Pay Details Sent! (finally) - Galaxy Red Bus Roffle

Recommended Posts

I had concocted an elaborate scheme to dispense with this Red beauty since she’s now surplus to requirements but another shiter’s insurance company arseholes have put paid to that.

Therefore a roffle is the obvious way forward.

It’s a 1998 Mk1 Ford Galaxy with the rorty 8V pez engine.
It sounds a bit rortier at the moment as there’s a small blow on the mid section.

It had a full oil/plugs/filters service about a month ago and I’ve just fitted new brake discs and pads on the rear.

There’s a new battery that’s a week old but I’ll be honest, unless someone buys the shed outright, I’ll probably have the battery off and on the sharan to get me money’s worth out of its 3 year warranty.

It’s an Aspen which means, cloth seats for seven bodies. The middle seat of the second row is a lap belt so only really for short trips, we tend to run it as a six or four seater.

The driver and passenger seats spin round for comedy effect and broadly everything side is correct.

There are four keys, two for the drivers door, one for the passenger and ignition and one for the boot...central locking works fine, as does auto open close from the door lock.

The front grille is cracked but there’s a new silver one to go with it. There’s a horn button missing off the wheel, again a new one to go with it.

I’ll secure the rear plate properly now I’ve replaced the back panel - originality lickers will appreciate the dealer fit plates no doubt.

Pics to follow by tapatalk, it’s red, except the roof is a bit pink but unless you’re Andre the Giant, you’d never know.

I’m only asking what I paid so tickets are at £8.50 or 2 for £16 firm.

She’s SORNed with mot until October, 159,000 miles.

Ah yes, location!

 

It’s in Castleford, near Leeds WF10 5

 

I’m the kind of idiot that will happily shitely it to anywhere I can get home from in a day...Most compass directions catered for.

 

It’ll have had a wash and spruce up before it is sent on its way (PS - it’s worth £215 on a weigh bridge if it blows up but you have me and pbk out to kill you).

 

It’s a chain driven engine, will get some action of it moving and audio of the thing.

      NOW EDITED:
      Proper funny-face Multipla
      My wife's car for last 8 years
      ELX spec, so has the twin sunroofs
      8v turbo diesel that plods on and on.  And on and on.  Did the 20 mile commute today, outside lane of M1 for a lot of it.
      Dependable to go anywhere. More reliable that was ever in the blueprint !
      Clutch 2016
      Cambelt 2017
      180k and everything still works including the folding mirrors, air con, both sunroofs, all windows, etc
      Some war wounds, well what do you expect, some interior sticky scratchy plastics but nothing broken - all functional


      Some noisy front clonking to deal with -  was told it's the inner ARB bushings despite MOT man being happy.  Just been turning up the stereo
       
      UPDATE
      Now has a Cat-C marker because of this.  Grrr.  The upshot is the insurer valued it at £1k.  Stitched together with cable ties for now.   

      MOT all the way to October
      Roffling at £8.50 a ticket - it really is that reliable and I don't want it gone but wife is in ear about it.  Taxed and insured until end of the month, see
      We moved white goods with it last week and a whole fixed panels front end from a classic Mini (Riley Elf ectually) the week before.  So VAN status is achievable as the seats just lift out

      Where is it? Well, you can smell the gunsmoke of Luton from here. M1 jns 9, 10, 11 will get you near. Or use the A5 and don't venture near that seething metropolis.

      Things are a changing folks, the Rover of Smoothness has to go and I think a Rover Roffle is the way for this to happen.
      You can see piccies of the car elsewhere on the forum but will try and post some as soon as I can over the weekend.
      This is really a lovely car that has had some serious money spent on her over the last few years.
      I have had a new rear section of exhaust fitted, a new brake caliper fitted to the N/S rear and it has had the CVT fluid drained and changed by the Rover specialist in St. Albans just a few months ago.  I had a new battery fitted when I bought her as well. She is a lovely smooth driving car, utterly comfortable too and she motors along beautifully. Quibbles? The heated seats don't work but seeing as the seats are velour fabric, that really isn't an issue.  A few giffer scuffs on the bumpers are present and there is a slight ding in the drivers front wing but I have a good wing that will come with the car.  The boot lid will sometimes come down unannounced but I was going to add a spring to the mechanism and see if it helped.  That's it really.  Mileage is around 58,000 or so. MOT till November I think. The old reg will come with the car and the current reg will be retained by me.  No OMG HGF/coolant loss/overheating issues whatsoever.
      She is insured under a classic insurance banner by PBIS. This is a lovely, lovely car.
      Roffle interest at £8 per number? Taxed to get you home. 
       
      If anyone wants to cross my palm with pound notes then £425 will see the car bought for cash tonite mate, no X boxes, sorry.

      1998 Mercedes C200 Elegance
      126k miles, MOT August.
      I picked this up from AndyW201 about a fortnight ago as a daily to replace the Cavalier whilst I take it off the road, I've done about 1000 miles in it, drives absolutely spot on and Andy has definitely undersold it in his description.
      However, due to buying the A8 from sims and another potential purchase I'm in negotiations with on here, I really need to free up some space - my storage is absolutely maxed with stuff and I now have 4 cars at home annoying the neighbours, I need to make some movement.
      Scrubs up fairly well, it has had some odd touch ups around the body but nothing that overly stands out, decent tyres all round, all electric work, has cruise control so is ideal on A roads/Motorways etc.
      £350 or will roffle at £6 a ticket. Delivery possible.






    • By TheDoctor
      I don't like it. I want a small car. Suzuki Wagon or similar. 
      £350 or roffle at 6 quid each.
      Good:
      159,000 miles. Just under a year's MOT
      Leather Interior (Actually that's a 'bad' to some people)
      Bad:
      Complicated starting method - 2 keys and an immobilizer
      Likes a drink - TADTS (Plus it is Scottish)
      Smells oily sometimes - TADTS
      Tappy noise occasionally. Have been told Vanos - but hasn't affected anything. Might actually just be a loose engine cover.
      Gearbox hangs in a low gear for first 30 seconds or so of driving after cold start. Fine after that. 
      Bodywork has scratches and rust (rear arches)
       
      I don't actually have many pictures...
