J reg 1.9TGD esatae, black

Post by dunx.wantok » Thu Sep 07, 2006 9:44 pm

I have decided to get rid of my BX, I am afraid. It is a black 1.9 TGD, with 150K on the clock. Experts on this forum have diagnosed it as having a blown head gasket, and needing a new accumulator sphere. MOT to beginning of December, no Tax. A couple little bumps, broken hinges on the glove box, and a repaired (one 'hinge') boot cover lid thingy.

3 owners (inc me). Last one had it 14 years, and must have got rid when the head gasket went. I didn't notice, and bought it. D'oh!

Any offers? It will need collecting from Cheltenham. I can get photos of it this weekend if there is any interest.

It has a pretty much new starter motor, alternator and exhaust pipe (all but the down pipe). It seems like the previous owner undersealed it as well. Seems a shame to scrap it, but I will have to if there is no interest.

Bumps and bruises are minimal as shown in photos above, all of which can be seen larger at my own web site: http://www.wantok.co.uk/photos/bx/. Just click on a picture on my web site to view it larger.

It would be a shame to scrap it, I've never seen a BLACK estate car before.

I don't think I'd bother doing the head gasket, just drop another engine in, straight out of a 205 :D

The problem is I'm too far away and now I've taken the latest estate on board I'm pretty well full up. :(

Really wish I could help.

Officially I believe it is black. I would have to dig the log book out to check. However, in pub arguments it has been described as grey, antracite, charcoal, carbon... The names get wilder as more beer flows. :D

I should mention the remote keypad for the central locking and alarm all works as well.

Anyone tempted?
