yes mate it was. There farm is opposite my grandparents, so mi was able to go over immediately.
The rust is pretty bad as far as i can see. Passenger door id held on with hopes and dreams.
And all the mechanicals are shot from being stood. brakes etc.
Haven't got the engine running yet due to knackered starter, but it does turn.

haven't had a good look at the shell yet, but it is being broken. If it was rare i might've done it. but they're not that rare, and i like to think the bits are going to good causes for other cars.

Any one want a nice interior?

Ph1 16v is pretty rare, especially in that colour. Ph2 is more common (relatively speaking).

Hmm Mk1 BX 16v's are indeed very rare, but looking at that one it does seem the years outside wont have helped!

In a few years, people will be puzzled as to why such a rare car wasn't saved. Much like CX's, DS's and GS's. Shame to see it cubed. :(

...and (unfortunately) how many people would be prepared to stump up what this is worth in parts, to 'save' it?

How Many Left? suggests 36 left of the Phase 1, so common by your standards!
