Featured in a "Classic and Sportscar" magazine 4x4 shootout, 55000miles with original bill of sale showing extras like cost of its aircon and that the p/ex was a metalic blue 19GT.
Few jobs still to do but coming on.

Think i might hire a truck to get them all to Wetherby? :lol:
Its got 16v wheels,interior and spheres but although there new i dont much care for the ride. Might change them for normal spheres if i cant get used to them. Didnt realise just how different underneath they are compared to 2WD models.A whole new learning curve.Tiny bit of surface rust inside o/s/r door opening but so minor just needs touching up.Over 15k when new these babies according to sales invoice!

Seen that car a few years back, it was lovely, but as you say has had some 16v bits added on.

Very nice. How many does that make? You'll have to get a 16v now to complete the whole BX range!

Me too! I'm looking forward to seeing it very much. It's pretty high up the "perfect BX" stakes in my book.
