16v grazing in Wiesbaden

Post by toddao »

Ok, I know it's too far for everyone - including me, but I thought it was quite interesting.
The seller inherited it and it's been sat there grazing for a few years, being sold as seen with no registration papers. He doesn't even know what year it is!
I thought all 16v's had a sun roof? I reckon after a few years sat there it can't be good for anything but parts but you can tell that someone loved it at some point looking at its mild tuning accessories ( complete tailblazer too) and you could probably re-coup your investment just by selling the rear side compartment doors that are lying in the boot! :D

That doesnt look as bad as some i've seen :lol: Mind you, at 1 euro its a bargain, especially if you get all the stuff in the boot as part of the deal. Did you spot the very rare items that actually fit in the boot?

Read the OP, Mulley, I think Todd did :lol:

I doubt it'll go for €1 but stranger things have happened.

Todd, how far is it from you?

This is only a mere 335kms from me! With a trailer hitched up to the van about 5 hours but then I wouldn't have a home to come back to probably. Though the wife does have some friends in that area : 'you go and visit your friends dear and I'll try to work out how to get this BX shaped lump we really need onto a trailer.'

Looks as though something's missing from the engine, could be the angle but I can't see the coolant tubes that run along the back. Well, he is selling it as a basket case!

Mmmm, 'nice' steering wheel! You're not seriously thinking about it are you Todd? I suppose you could always live in the van if she kicks you out... :wink:

Mat asked

No not really, even if it was local I don't have anywhere to put it unless it fell into convenient little pieces when it was towed! There was a 1982 Visa Club( with the great dash) just sold round the corner here, low mileage but in need of welding. When I said I was going for a viewing the wife's eyes flashed with a mild rage. I let that one go - sold for €102.

If it's only a mild rage you might be able to get away with it, with the liberal application of flowers and choccies. The secret to a happy marriage is knowing how far you can push it...or is that just me? :wink: :)
