Retail 3.2 MV6, registered as KP52 OMC.

Owes me nothing - purchased for disposable car money in 2019 and gave me several months of carefree hooligan motoring, before an MOT failure today.

Roughly 238k miles

Auto

MOT until 20/1/2020 if you want to drive it away on your own head.

MOT Failure. You can see on the history online yourself, but essentially, structural rust front and rear near suspension components are the deal breakers. The rest is just bulbs, and a front droplink, which I forgot about because I just kept turning the radio up.
Advisories for shock misting. No advisories for tyres, but I'd be looking to do them within the next 6 months.

Cambelt is over due, there's a whiff of oil but I've only put a cupful in over the last 6 months. Drives, steers, brakes all straight and true.
There's a leak (rain) somewhere, passenger footwell is soaked.

Rear arches are rusty. I started to treat one with a dremel and hammerite, followed by a school boy spray job to slow it down but winter hit before I could do the same to the other.

Lumbar support isn't great in the drivers seat.

Scratch on windscreen in drivers wiper arch.

Slow puncture on NSR tyre. Until I put a can of foam in there and forgot about it.

Drivers door card kept in place with duck tape.

Marks consistent with age and miles.

Hopefully I've set your expectations by now and there won't be any come backs or tyre kickers.

All that said, I'd get in it tomorrow and drive it across europe. All I've done is put a cup of oil in and rag it for the last six months. It's always started, always taken me whereever I want to go without any fuss at all.

Heated seats work!

If you're handy with a welder, you could have a year of the same.

Goes like something off a stick, even on LPG (no noticible difference than petrol).

Very tidy sequential LPG install (not on the database). a DIY job with an awful lot of care taken.

Loads of usable spares.

Guide price, 225 as is, or 150 if I can rip off some LPG stuff (particularly the tank and frame, to expand the capacity on my V8)

I know cars don't sell well on here, so will soon also be on a well known auction site, at a 1p start price with no reserve, to represent how little it owes me.

Cheers, :y

Why pay 225 on here when you'll probably get it for 1p on eBay? 😂😂😂

If you are offended by anything I post, sorry. Just thought I'd get that in now.

Ah Steve, it's nice to see you're still such a cynical old b@stard. But I've always liked you  :P :y

It's a guide price.... I'd happily take some bartering, especially if the buyer doesn't want the tank  ;)
