Reunited with old MV6
« on: 19 September 2018, 20:57:19 »

Well finally tracked it down and bought it back after a little haggling.

I always regretted selling my Champagne/leather S Reg MV6 in 2001 due to house purchase at the time. The first owner was Vauxhall.

I sold it with 11k miles on the clock. It ended up in Glasgow (Iím in East Yorkshire).

I bought it from the guy bought it from the Vauxhall dealer I sold it to! So other than Vauxhall, only him and me as owners.

Itís only got 56k miles on with all MOTs//receipts etc including the two Vauxhall dealer sales invoices.

Needs some tlc as been laid up a while.

Get some pics up soon😉

Iím going to restore it as I remember it when it was 9 months old.

Iíve got pics from when I had it before so got really good base to work with.

Needs rear arches doing, 2 door bottoms, and wheels re-finishing for looks.

Iíll replace a couple of bits of interior trim too.

Itíll need 4 brake discs & pads /centre exhaust piece/handbrake for MOT (at least)

Certainly worth doing and keeping nice with that mileage / low owners / documentation history

Always remember the day I collected it from the dealers in 2000 😄

Fantastic. That is a story that you really, really, really don't hear very often.


Oh, you don't fancy selling it to me, do you?  :D ;D

Itíll be a good stablemate for my star silver MV6.

Thatís only had 1 previous owner other than the dealer as a pre-reg in Dec Ď99.

Itís twice the mileage at 113k, but that has full spec including leather, nav, cruise, Bose, telephone head unit so again worth keeping & sorting.

Itís off road at moment with my poss head gasket issues.

Ah, I ended up buying my first MV6 back, because I missed it.

It's now in the fleet along with far too many other cars! Needs a bit of bodywork doing mind...
