Saw this on Facebook. It was EXTREMELY cheap, I don't know why else I bought it really, and have no idea what to do with it :laugh:


Some pictures

80 k miles.
10 months MOT
LOTS of tax






Paint is poor. Roof and bonnet need a respray ideally.

It is what it is, for price I paid I didn't expect anywhere near perfect

No idea mate. On route to collecting it now, I wanted an e30 for a project next, so maybe just a stop gap. Already have a Corsa c I used for work

Unless that was 150 it was too much.

Remapped to 150bhp?

Don't know why I bother

What spec of the 'C' is it?

Looks reasonable considering the age and the mileage doesn't seem to bad either; quick tidy up and you could move it on without much trouble

Could easily sell that on to a new driver if its a 1.2 Already CC'd, irmy splitter etc.

Dewiper it properly, get a proper boot badge and sell it.

It's a 1.2.

Already ordered a grommet and going to take silly sticker off boot handle. Tidy it up, then probably give tonnes to replace her B.

Looking for standard late type bumper to replace what's on there. Then will sell irmy splitter for money back

Picked up a free wing today, after a clay bar and polish, it looked like this.

Think it's just the light.

Wasn't as much tax as I first thought. Runs out end of October I think

My last be cost me slightly less (arden blue one) made it look very tidy more than doubled money after using it for 14 months faultlessly.

Bargain.

I bought a C last year, but the Twinport with a shagged engine.
Paid 200, 350 for the engine and sold it for 1,500.

Should of kept it though, great little cars.
For 300 it's a bargain and you won't get much else for the money.

I bought a 1996 Ford Escort 1.8 Si for 150, Then a lady reversed into me and didn't want to use insurance so gave me 200, Car didn't need fixing i just taped the bumper up. Did nearly 40,000miles in that car.
