C reg BX in Norwich (NOW SOLD)

Post by mat_fenwick »

We've had the following message from a BX owner:

Hello
We have a C reg BX sitting in our garden in Norwich. It has been there for many years! We are thinking of scrapping it but before we do that we wondered if it could be of any use to anyone in your club?
Many thanks

I have been in touch with the owner
This is a mk1 19DTR (one of only a few left)
It is in quite poor condition with excessive rust
It was laid up for the simple reason of a new car purchased, owner tells me it was running and in daily use previous to this and they couldn't bear to part with it as it had been such a good car.
I'm going to have a look at it as it's not too far away but I suspect its gonna be too far gone for rescue.
A resto for the brave or parts doner...
