Mk1 19RD

Post by Tim Leech »

Email come through to me from the CCC, Mk1 white 19RD, no MOT, no brakes or spheres, missing drivers window, rear lights etc, failed its MOT a few years back but engine and box are good. Been sat ever since. No V5C either.

The guy that owns it wants scrap value for it, hes a back yard mechanic who was left the car when it failed its MOT

Its rare being a Mk1 19RD but even so, think this one is too far gone.

Don't see how you can say that until you've at least seen pictures of it :?

It would be interesting to know a bit more :)

:shock: Bloody hell, he wants scrap price for that heap, he clearly wants someone to dig the bugger out to save himself the hassle. I thought it might have been under cover, but with that window having been missing for 3yrs, its gotta be totally fucked, why do people do this????

It may provide some useful spares that are specific to mk1's, or someone who really wants a challenge to get that back onto the road. The description of what's wrong didnt actually sound that bad or expensive, but a replacement interior etc i think puts it beyond any economical repair & that's before knowing what it failed on 3yrs ago. Is this the winter project that you've now passed on (you did mention a white car?).

Is that a big letter 'D' over the fuel filler flap to remind the driver to fill up with diesel or is a hole/rust ?

:lol:
