Good point, OK do what i do when buying cars, using self denial and enthusiasm to 'rectify' any faults. I.e. That will be easily fixed.

As all good antique dealers say "if the only thing you don't like is the price then buy it, if there's anything else just walk away...".

Unfortunately it's hard to apply that to cars when the heart rules the head and "that's an easy fix" and "that'll straighten out" and "that's only a couple of quid" and "that'll only take me an hour"... :wink:

Long live old bangers and those of us that love them :lol:

The service history puts the mileage at just 34k in 2001 (10 years old) and an MOT puts it at 51k in 2006 so i'd say she's a genuine low miler at just 63k.

Actually, asside of being utterley filthy it's actually a good motor!

A & C pillars, no rust! Boot Floor, Immaculate! Inner wings, Spotless! Engine is dry, pulls like a train and is as smooth as silk!

Other than being a rolling ashtray and needing a polish outside the only obvious faults are: Leak from (most likely) octopus, poor earth on rear lights, tear on drivers seat and erm, erm... that's really about it!

And the general condition along with the limited history supplied does actually suggest the 63k IS GENUINE!

Ba har gin!
