No estates had sunroofs cliff, one will show up soon enough I expect, there was a TZd estate for spares near me recently plus one sat on someone's drive for years.

I never knew that Tim, why was no sunroof fitted to estates? Structual maybe? That makes the find a little easier then.

If you look mate the roofline raises up just behind the drivers head so the factory sliding roof wasn't able to be fitted, a small glass pop up roof can be fitted but it's rare.

Homer, 1.9 n/a TXD Estate is to be sold soon. Needs the new exhaust system fitted, a pair of front y return pipes (GSF failed on at the mo) and thence off to MOT after a check over. He is not pretty, as the red paint has had the top layer go in places. There is a bit of rust around the rear exhaust mount. He has been used as a builders van on a home build prior to my ownership. But the scrap car has a TZD Turbo Estate interior in it. I rescued him from oblivion. He has miles left to do despite having covered 189k plus miles. Engine has a newish clutch.

I now re found Homers file. So I find I never actually got round to buying the New rear box. There is New, front gasket, good front pipe, New good quality centre S bit, New good quality centre silencer. That lot would owe me £350, your welcome to take the interior out of the scrapper. If I keep the new bits and the interior you can have it for £250, as below. there is the old S centre pipe to go with it.
Sadly I do not have a big enough trailer for a BX. My buds live at Langrick, Boston way.
What is an MOTed scruffy BX Estate TXD worth. £5-600? Should be worth doing I would have thought.

Hi TB, thanx for the heads up sounds ideal for what i want, as long as its solid this is important as my plan is to convert it to pick up and fit a 100hp XUD7TE t/d engine and box which i have here, so if you want to keep the running gear its an option for you as 1.9 n/a's are not my power choice, i ill only need the front seats. I am still making the journey from home to Heathrow weekly but only for a few more weeks, any chance you can post up some pics of said car?

Yes, try and sort that. The front seats in the car are not bad, but a different material to the TZD. Its the rear that is crap. Still that's detail that can be sorted out later. The engine would not really be of great use to me. I am into the 1.7 Turbo unit. Though the clutch could be reprocessed. Gary still waits for his. Maybe the engine can go to someone else. Might be you will want the plastic bonnet off the other car, rather than the original steel one, if your repainting?

Then again the scrapper, blue TZD Estate on 208k miles, could go back on the road again. It does need the rear quarter underneath repaired, though. The major prob with this car is it arrived with the engine falling out. The front O/S top engine mount/tensioner had been bolted in with the wrong bolts, which have sheared flush with the block. Its amazing the engine did not self destruct. This engine is going into be mated to a gearbox and bellhousing I have sourced, another spare 1.9 XUD to become available, October?, and will be appearing in a Borgward or Wolseley eventually. Good engine in mid quality pre-60 classic car, much cheapness. I have nicked some bits of this car, but not a lot. The suspension works on this one, but the engine is now unstartable!!! I was going to start nicking lhm pipes as I need them to repair the other runners without working suspension. Is it worth the extra effort to save the money? As a rolling shell it owes me more than I will get, but thats life.

A pick up will be interesting. I am not sure if I dreamed it, but I think there used to be a 6 wheeled beaver tail car transporter version in France. No ramps as it knelt down.

Oh dear. Never give the customer a choice!

I cannot see how to upload pictures on this system. I can send you some if you email me on alanbubblecars@hotmail.com. Probably best anyway, as it will block up a load of webspace.
