MK1 19DTR For Sale £2000.

Post by citsncycles »

Yep, good luck with the sales!

At least you're going for the more common model, so shouldn't be too hard to find. Mum has a '58 4 door back in the early 80's that after it killed the engine was fitted with a Marina 1275 engine - that made it go well! We sold it when the boot floor went (I didn't weld back then as I was just starting Secondary School) - I wonder if 856 DAE (Daisy!) is still around?

I've looked at Travellers over the years, but the problem with them is a cheap travveler can rapidly turn into an expensive traveller, and it's difficult to weld wood!

If you want a properly sorted Moggy, then Charles Ware is the man ( company ). Serious dosh though, but still relatively cheap compared to a new car and infinitely more ecological.

Sounds like it was patched up and run for another year or so then - a pity, but back then they were treated pretty much like Xantias are today - a small cult following but regarded by many as bangers!

I've wanted one for the best part of 25years but up untill now a Minor has not been practical due to useage and storage. I have been saving for ages and may start shopping in the spring :D

I've often kind of fancied one, but for me it would have to be a Traveller, in any colour. Seeing one always reminds me of one we had on our street when I was growing up in the 80s, and the owner was forever working on it. I must have only been around 6 at the time, but I remember always being interested in what he was doing, and would sometimes watch him (probably asking annoying questions!)

Probably true! I tried to split some posts and move them to Tim's blog, but I appear to have failed. Bear with me while I try and work out what's wrong - it seems like it's kept the ones I wanted to move in the original thread, and moved the rest!

I'm afraid this is the best I can do regarding the missing posts, sorry :(

Post subject: MK1 19DTR For Sale £2000.
Post details
It hasnt been used for 6 months, plus I need to cut some financial corners, no great rush for now but I will be offering it for sale in late summer, when it will be offered with a fresh 12 months MOT and a new heavy duty battery.

As you know the car was restored and repainted last summer and is in great condition inside and out, its not perfect and the paintwork has a few flaws but as Mk1 Diesels are very very rare and the DTR one of about 3 left (I only know of one other roadworthy) im not too fussed.

Mileage is 182'000 miles but pretty much everythings been replaced over the years (triggers broom) and when I bought it in 2011 Ken went through it with a fine tooth comb changing all fluids, arm bearings, spheres, cambelt etc. The service history file is very sizeable!

The boot floor has been welded as has the front subframe, the A posts and inner wings are all solid, its has new outer sills and door shuts are a little patchy in places but theres no corrosion issues.

Its not fast by any standards but pulls well and runs lovely and starts first time. (Rotodiesel)

All the electrics work except the interior light courtesy switches on a couple of doors.

Price? Well it owes me about £3000 with the repairs done (I could write a long list), but will take offers over £2000, which of course doesnt include the 100+ hours ive done on it myself.

I intend to replace with the something older (free tax), smaller, simpler and british that me and the wife can both drive, so if you have such a thing that you would like a swop/px on please let me know.

Being a DTR it has electric windows x4 , electric sunroof, power steering, and the full Mk1 dash with sexy LED tacho, the interior is mint having a set of later model seats fitted from a low mileage Mk2 which match and the carpet was removed and professionally steam cleaned and the floors cleaned and rust treated.

Correct Rubber mats, Mk1 flaps all round and (new) headlamp protectors, its back on its original steel wheels with correct Mk1 trims and a couple of new tyres will be fitted before MOT. I can offer a set of Metric Alloys with tyres at extra cost if required.

A new rear 1/4 window was also supplied and fitted when the car was painted.

Im keeping the TZI auto and going to slowly make that a show winner and the GT is just too nice to let go and I think two 1.9 BX's is enought for me.....unless they bring back teh 25 year free road tax of course.

Anyway, as with WTF I reserve the right who I sell it too, its FAR too good to use to use as a hack (as it was before I bought it and was very tatty).

Find another like this one....

How boring! :lol: My mum says the same thing (rainy day and all that, I guess shes of that generation as were her parents), but ive wanted a Minor for years, my jobs as safe as any job is these days so without sounding flippant I dont really need to put it away, obvioulsy if I was to be redundant that would change things. Plus I know me, if its in the bank it will get eventually spent on a new doors for the house, new bedroom furniture, meals out, etc so best to have something to show for it.

Lifes for living though, if I can afford it (the 800 and DTR are both £225 a year tax and the Moggy will be nil and the insurance is peanuts) then I am of the mindsight then why not, worse case scenario is if things go tits up I can always sell it on (hopefully for more than I paid once Ive got it up to scratch.

My grandad worked all his life untill ill health made him stop (WW2 injuries that crippled him in later life), was always very careful with money, never wasted it, never went far on holiday or had new things or had a car. In 1997 when he passed away my Gran found £20'000 in £20 notes in a suitcase under the bed she never knew about, I guess that rainy day never came....some of it was shared throughout the family (£500 towards my Sd1 was my share) but the bulk eventually went on paying for the nursing home she spent the last few years in.....which of course would have been free if they had "enjoyed it".

Mike

I want a two door saloon (dont like the 4), the travellers are too much money, the convertible isnt my thing and the van/pick up would be of no use. Ideally a later 1098cc, in grey, blue or white.....almond green, burgundy or trafalgar blue are at the bottom of the list.

Theres a couple on eBay I fancy, ones a bit too much (its a 998, witha few rust bubbles and had the original plate removed) and one finishes tomorrow which would be perferct but my sales will still be going through. Ive emailed the seller of that one to ask if it doesnt meet reserve to let me know but he hasnt bothered to reply.

My Uncle had a sucession of them in the late 70's when they were bangers and its a bit of a nostalgia trip! for me!

Ive emailed the seller of that one to ask if it doesnt meet reserve to let me know but he hasnt bothered to reply.



Would you? as far as he is probably concerned your just a leech (Great pun eh? :lol: ) who is not bidding on the sale but just hoping to latch on with a stupid low bid if the reserve isn't met, he's probaly had several others doing similar if my experiences of selling cars on ebay is anything to go by, he won't know or believe you have a genuine interest. Might be best just to e-mail him a genuine offer if it doesn't sell when you are in a position to buy.

I always reply to eBay emails, common courtesy, even if its a NO thanks. It was just registering my interest and wishing him well with the sale but a back up plan if it didnt go through.

haha I know, it was like something out of a movie, Grandad didnt "trust banks". Sadly towards the end of his life he was very infirm and think he just "forgot" it was there. I have never seen that amount of money in cash before or since. My Gran was having kittens and didnt want it "in the house" so it was swiftly deposited. Thank goodness they never got turned over although they rarely went out.

Moggies are awesome fun to drive on those 145 section tyres and give low 40s mpg! Try and get one with an unleaded head Tim and watch the brake fade on those front drums!
