Mustard!!!! Tumeric dear boy! :shock:

If your going to have an SD1, you need to buy a V8, with a manual gearbox, otherwise its just a poorly build 70s BL prouct that doesnt go fast or do many miles to the gallon, but with that engine its forgiveable and they are bullet proof if you change the oil.

Nothing except its a bit like driving round with the handbrake on, REALLY blunts fuel economy and performance, the manual is a nice long legged 5 speeder, where the slushbox is a 3 speed with a much lower top.

They sure is, Gregzee fitted them and the daft bugger scrapped the steelies.

I found some Cit centres (zx) and made them fit, so they look better and (hopefully) confuse. :P

There are a set of nice early w/trims with the spares, if buyer wants to swap back :wink:

The cars done about 150K, but had a complete top 1/2 rebuild about 2K ago. IE newly rebuilt head and a new belt.
It's also got a comprehensive list of spares to go with it included if you missed that.

OK due to sudden crack the car now has a new windscreen.and has a modern audio unit I didn't mention before..
it will be MOT'd this week.
It won't be taxed due to insurance issues and I will amend the price accordingly.
So! if anyone wants to make an offer either mail me or a pm will do.

HOW is this car still for sale??? :?

You had any offers Philhod?

The board went incredibly silent, I have to say (with the exception of Ian, and Rich who bought it), when I had my own car for sale, that I'd owned since 2005, and I've been a member on here for over six years...

Saying that I know full well that times are tight financially at the moment. Hence (probably) several BXs for sale at once over the past few months..

Hi Phil

Any pictures?

Most on here already have a BX (or 5 :oops: ) so maybe the great unwashed on ebay would be the quickest way to move her on.

Pics are on this thread further back (slide show) thanks to Mat

Do not have a flea bay account so will neither buy or sell on there.
It went on car and classics mags on line adverts today

I haven't pushed it Mark for the last couple of weeks. The cracked screen stopped me MOTing it and the screen set me back £100, but now is replete with both, so I will be looking to get it advertised more widely, including CCC.
