Bx txd auto 1991

Post by bigmarkbx » Wed Feb 03, 2010 10:28 pm

White BX has been the family for approx 7 years, purchased at 27000 miles - has approx. 80000 at present and with 2 previous owners.

I have driven it for the past 5 years and been very happy doing both short and long runs. Sadly it the hydraulics have sprung a leak and money is tight it is time to say goodbye. Bodywork and inside are tidy, although driver's seat is showing signs of wear. BX has been regularly serviced and mot until end May 2010, car has been SORN.

Car is located in North East London, near A406 and will need to be towed away, sorry cannot deliver. £75 cash.

That's the plan :)

Went out for 15mins in our BX auto last night, first time it's moved for literally months. What an absolute joy to drive round after the last few months in the wheelie bin.!

Let's have some story Ken and some pics. Did you go and recover it from London then? And what was the leak?

No not yet. The owners are away in Bournemouth at the moment. But waiting to hear from them when they get back so I can go recover it.

As I understand it, it's an octopus leak, so a roadside bodge to get it home is in order :D The car itself has a good description, FSH and above all




A HEATER \:D/

Ken I have a friend looking for a cheap car, who may be interested in your ZX when you come to sell it...
