BX TZD estate spares or repairs

Post by morningglory » Sat Jan 12, 2019 1:52 pm

Hi,

Absolutely gutted to be selling my lovely BX 1.7 TZD estate. First the bad bit: the cambelt failed and the camshaft has cracked. I’ve just not got the time to get into taking the cylinder head off or liaising with a garage to sort it.

This has really only been used for my motorway commute, regularly getting very quiet, comfortable and economical mileage (can be seen on fuelly.com). Very original and very rare example. 78k, Triton green.


The good bits:


No advisories past 3 MOTs
Regularly serviced with new filters and good quality oil.
Hydraulics always fast and smooth.
Washer bottles regularly removed for cleaning underneath (known rust spot)
Garage always amazed at the underneath and zero rust on bodywork
New alternator and battery in past 6 months
New octopus 2016
New LHM past 6 months
New front discs and pads 2017, with new front offside caliper
Rear pads and discs 2016
Comfort spheres all round 2017
Continental Eco-contact tyres

All electrics work - 4 electric windows, mirror, remote central locking, switches, heater etc.
2 keys
Original radio
Coolant temperature gauge (attached to vent, right of instrument panel)
Roofbars and original rubber floor mats as well

Paint is deep and shiny. The offside wing has dropped a centimetre or so as per photo and one roof gutter has a bit of crazing. Also the rear offside door had a ding before I got it. This hasn’t gone into the paintwork and you can’t see it unless you know its there.
Interior and headlining top condition as per photos.




It would be a real shame to scrap the car or strip it for bits so hopefully someone can tow or trailer it away and get it running. New camshaft, valves and springs included courtesy of club member. I’m in north Sheffield, 10 mins from M1 J35. Looking for £500. I’m posting this here first, then I’ll try Facebook, then eBay.


Thanks,

Joe

He found me via the Facebook group and has had BXs and other Citroens before, so I assume he knows about this website forum as well. Sounds like hes looking to make it mint which is good. So gutted!
