Meteor almost free!

Post by Philip Chidlow » Fri Feb 05, 2016 1:25 pm

From the CCC Forum, posted by Paul Savill
"I've taken a call from a gent in High Wycombe. Due to a bereavement, a car has been languishing in a garage unused since 2000. Its a 1.6TGS Meteor. It was last taxed July 2000, it's Dark Blue and looks to be in good condition. The tyres are still inflated. He thinks it's an A reg but doesn't have a complete photograph of the plate and he reckons it looks to good to scrap.
The scrap man will give £25 to take it away. If anyone wants to compete with that please email me for contact details".

Bargain! if its a Meteor it will either be a H or J plate.

so probably only 9 years old when parked up?

Could be a real find.

Darren's off to see it tomorrow. He'll either buy it or report back.

The Meteor 1.6 I have is a J plate Aug 92 reg. Nice trim level, I'd also be interested. Not only that, but High Wycombe is not too far away for me either. I missed one about 18 months ago on Gumtree - the seller did not play ball.
