You can't go far wrong at £50.
I wonder if this could be put in there?
However you could fit something from the 90s in there if you really wanted! Pre-facelift C280 engine would be a good example.
I'm glad its only got a few hours left to run, otherwise I might consider it. It can't be far from me, but haven't got time to visit today.
Make you wonder where it was damaged....
Stolen and/or rolled maybe..... no gearbox so that should cost a few more grand
The windscreen and the roof are up for sale too...
Is that from a modding point of view or a repair point of view
it appears you were right on two counts, its a classic money pit!!
proper money pit these cars... will need an enormous amount of welding..
Simply getting it back to a pristine condition will see copious amounts of money disappearing from your bank account. I would always recommend buying a car in the best condition you can afford.... Unless you have the time, expertise and parts available to do the work yourself.
Incidentally I'm no fan of that colour which in my personal opinion does not do that model any credit.
Good luck though
A lot of people buy these because they look like classics at bargain money.. however you have to remember this was effectively the base model of its time and so didnt always get the same care as some of the cars further up the range.
Add to that they rot like no mans business.
The good bit is that they are dead simple to work on and have no fancy electronics, hydraulics or funny air suspension...
107 quid looks like a good deal to me to break it for spares
Personally, if I bought it, it would take up space while I took the time to break it. Good luck to anyone on here if they did take the plunge, but I have alot of mods to do on my daily run around before I consider this.
You probably know my opinion on these things but I like the idea of replacing all the panels with FG replicas (to avoid rust and reduce weight) then convert to electric!
That's how to upset not just the purists but practically everyone!
I don't think fibreglass would save weight, but aluminium would.
I still wonder about an electric A class project car. Just too much other work to do...
It would weigh in for £220...
