Mk1 Wanted. Not a dealer!

Post by drunkenmunkey » Sat Apr 11, 2020 5:52 pm

Hi,

After a few years of missing out on buying a Mk1, I'm putting out this call to those who may be ready sell.

I'm open to any of the mk1s but preferably not a total rotter.



Cheers

Hugh

It was RHD originally so shouldn't be a huge job to swap back. I have all the parts required as I'm converting mine to LHD - I've even had Rust Republic save the RHD steering bracket just in case I get tempted :-D

Hi Hugh I have a 1979 1.6 GLS auto in river blue metallic in my collection of cars. It is in very original condition and has only 23000 genuine miles. I bought it a few years ago from a gentleman who's Uncle had died. He had it for over thirty years and had last used it in 1983 so the car has only done 4 years of driving. I have sympathetically recommissioned it including new belts, plugs, filters, fuel lines, exhaust, tailgate struts, and a new fuel tank not that it needed one but I couldn't remove the 35 year old fuel from it which had turned into a thick tar!!! It has the original radio, no cracks in the dash or marks in any of the interior trim or holes cut in the shelf etc. Everything is present and correct although there are a few small marks on the paintwork from it's time in storage and a small dent in the front wing which I think will come out without painting. It does need new tyres as they are the original Michelin XZX's. There's plenty of tread but they are forty years old. The car drives perfectly since the recommissioning work and is a real "time warp" example. I have too many cars and hence will sell as I can't use them all. I don't really know the value but would have thought that it is worth a little more than the one listed above as it has such low mileage and has never been welded. Please give ,me a call if it is of interest. Thanks John 07774 430000 or 01242 898094. For clarity I have sent the same message to another fellow on the forum who is requesting a Mk1
