This car was offered to us on the 16V forum last week.

The vendor wanted £1500 ONO.

There are more photos on the 16V forum.

Worth good money but car values haven't reached that level yet despite their ever decreasing numbers.

This is a BX that would make me part with my GTi auto. If funds come in on time I'd be sorely tempted. White. Phase 1. VGC. Magic 8)

you want a valver engine Mulley?
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

What a beauty! Concorde garage supplied my 16TRS, just had some plates made up for with their logo on it.

Having driven a Ph. 1 and a Ph. 2 16v I'd go for the former. Seems far more lively and boy did it shift.

If only I had the funds. I'd be at least £1500 worse off but with it sitting outside my house. lol!

needs the rust sorting inside the rear door shuts (join between sill and rear arch panel) but aside from that looks very good indeed. Drivers seat squab a bit worn, but that's shared with many other BXs so not really an issue.

Main thing is it's not been messed about with, and phase 1's will go up in value! Despite the massive number sold new compared to phase 2's, the lack of coated pipes seemed to do for most of those that weren't crashed or broken for their motors. Now seems to be many more phase 2's left.

I spent nearly 8 months looking for a Phase 1 and only found 3 - bought 2 of them (including my old car back from a mate) and the other was uneconomical scrap from a delusional trader who thought it was worth £800 before needing £1500 minimum spending on it :!:

This car deserves to go to an enthusiast, pity it's had to pass through the hands of a trader by the looks of it.
