It's the green one.

If you're proper horny for it then PM me, but anyone with cash can buy a car any time. Meh.
Would roffle, but CBA with the admin.
 
Therefore, funtime!
 
Another KruJoe-spec 99p start AUCTION...
 
(GBP (Pounds Sterling) bids only, no licked Twixes (John_F, I'm talking to you), bid increments 50 pence or more, that's up to you. Auction ends 24 hours after the last bid. Other T&C's may apply if I haven't thought of them yet.)
 
It's a risk, but I'll take it.
I've thought of a number as a reserve, roughly bridge price plus today's £50 MOT fee, so above that, I'm happy. If it doesn't work, we'll re-think, but his is will be a cheap car for one of you lot.

Central, so close to everyone on mainland UK.
 
Collection: most days/times are possible, evenings are good. Relaxed timescale, storage is not a problem here. I can bring you to it from Skipton bus or rail station.

The Car.
My dependable daily for two FTP-free years. Ex-JohnK and Bramz. 
1.4 Rti run-out model, lots of toys. 
Cheap tax and cla$$ic policy friendly (£140pa, Carole Nash. A.Flux quoted similar).
Tested until 31 May 2020, advised on two back tyres.
Not yet 62,000 on the dial. Likely to be SORN'd before June. V5 here, with loads of history.
New oil and filter last week.
Good batt, exhaust, brakes etc. There are a few minor niggles, I've just lived with it. Character, innit.
Squishy-comfort velour in fine fettle. (Almost) everything works.
The bodywork scrubs up well but there's some bits of rust if you really go looking. It doesn't stop it being a respectable motor… until… last week one of my favourite brothers rubbed a tractor down the side, damaging two doors and the mirror.

All still work fine, and I still have the (undamaged) plastic strip from the door. I don't have the arsedness to try improving it cosmetically and I'm ready for a change of daily anyway. The worst would likely push out from inside. As would the small bit on the arch – it's single skinned there. Until that happened, nobody has ever turned their nose up at it, and it has attracted a lot of positive conversation.

Hahaha...

Back wiper works, but I have to park it with a skilled release of the lever. I don't think the back squirter squirts. The wiring into the tailgate is a bit munched, so that might have something to do with it.

Then my bid stands. Please do not munch any more wiring. ;)

Interesting fact(s), this is a phase three 19 with side impact bars and drivers airbag. 

The RHD cars did not get the revised dashboard. 

 

I really liked this car. I don't want it back (never buy back cars I've sold now) so I will follow the auction with intrigue.

Sure, there may be more exciting shite out there, but it's certainly more interesting than most moderns I could name.

Sleep trouble? The cosy, velourious chairs in it could hug you to sleep if you sit still for five minutes.

Cheers! We've achieved scrap value I reckon... a few more bids to cover the test fee?

Last night I dug out the rear headrests and parcel shelf from storage, they're still in perfect condition. It really is very tidy inside.

      Yesterday I was in hospital having surgery on my ankle so rather than rest like the surgeon said I have arranged to go and collect my new car.
      I have been awake all night in pain so what could possibly go wrong! Luckily it's only a couple of hours round trip so I reckon I can do it, if I get really tired on the way back the accommodation in my new car is positively palatial and I can rest up on the heated rear seats.
      Can't wait!

      A strange day yesterday where both me and Mrs Cheeze both bought cars. She is getting a 65 plate Civic which she says she will keep for 10 years - hopefully.
       
      I got a Jaguar XJ6 4.0 Sovereign for significantly less than the cost of her Civic. I'd been keeping an eye on it on Gumtree the last month and the price had been creeping down and I managed to get it a bit cheaper still. With a bit of googling it appears it went through the Morris Leslie classic auction in August. I paid a bit less than it went through there at.
       
      Surprisingly Mrs Cheeze likes it and my Dad loves it. There is some rust on the roof and a giffer repair on one of the arches but it seems solid. Scabby bits here and there but nothing terminal. It has done 59,000 miles and only seems to have done a couple of thousand in the last few years.
       
      It drives nicely but doesn't change up as soon as it should I feel. It isn't going into third until 30mph and fourth isn't until about 75mph. You can induce it to change up by booting it and backing off but thats not ideal. I need to check the fluid level. If it is still doing it after that I'll get a gearbox service done on it.
       
      It is surprisingly small inside. I went to pick up my big mate last night in it and even with the passenger seat right back he was struggling. He managed once I had reclined it a bit.
       
      Some pictures. The pictures flatter it.

      So at least a bunch of you will recognise my much hacked about Invacar (AC Model 70 actually to be technically correct), KPL139P from my blog thread.
       
      With the arrival of Dollywobbler's former spares car the decision was made to return that to the road rather than KPL as it was in far better overall condition.
       
      So since then she has donated her engine, brakes and gearbox to TPA.
       
      It seems a shame to just throw away the leftovers though. Given the repeated comments we've both had from people saying we should stick a silly bike engine or something in it, there seems to be interest in some madcap projects.
       
      I reckon with a roof chop, custom front end built and a suitably mad engine you could make a truly epic 2/3rd scale replica hot rod with it. I however have neither the time nor resources.
       
      The chassis will need a couple of repairs due to water having got trapped beneath the floor, but is overall sound. Sound and utterly over-engineered for what it is.
       
      She already has a V5C present and in my name, so just needs a (Class III) MOT to allow you to change the vehicle type to motor tricycle and tax class to historic.
       
      I need the garage space back, so if anyone wants to take this on as a crazy project, it's all yours.
       
      It has tyres that are holding air sufficiently that it can roll for loading purposes just fine.
       

       

       
      A pair of somewhat dodgy doors can be had if required, I just need to swap some bits over before I'm done with them. Rear windscreen is missing, windscreen is present and serviceable, and I have good door glass available if you want it.
       
      If you're thinking ditching the body, sticking a roll cage on and making a crazy off-road buggy that might be immaterial...plenty of suspension travel and compliant springs...that could work actually...
       
      If you're interested, let me know.
       
      Really not looking for anything for it, but if you'd like to contribute towards the camper and Invacar restoration fund anything will be appreciated.
       
      I'd rather have it out the way sooner than later to be honest, but if you're interested but cannot get it picked up until a given date I'm sure we can arrange something.

      Moving this over here in case anyone has missed it. Needing this gone within next 2 weeks due to losing parking space. Couple of faults but nothing major. Its mot'd til jan and in good running order. Price drop to £300 as is for quick sale, otherwise i fix the faults and stick it on bumtree for twice that amount! Would make a good winter beater for someone
