NOW SOLD 2x BXs for spares or repair

Post by bxdreamer »

Hi there
Apologies to post without introduction. I know little about these cars but appreciate their aesthetic value.
I have two of my dads old BX's. The F Reg one he owned from new and was our family car which we have fond memories of. It did circa 60000 miles then he took it off the road for some reason (possibly an oil leak) with the plan of fixing it by breaking up the other BX, the E reg one. The project stalled and the cars have been off the road and stored in an industrial building for the last 25 years. My dad is now dead.
I have looked at them and they appear to be free of rust, the green stuff you can see on the photo wipes off easily, it is just dirt and dust. The interior of the F reg one is in excellent condition. The E reg one looks to be less good. There is some service history on both.
I cannot comment on the condition of the engine or the mechanics generally and haven't made any attempt to start or drive them.
The F reg one is the entry level BX, it was a special edition called 'mystigue', it is quite rare I think.
Any interest? They are in east Birmingham.
I am happy to sell to an enthusiast for a sensible offer. It would have to be sold as seen on the basis of photos (I can provide more if there is interest) and then towed away, I can't conduct detailed viewings. The scrap dealer will take them for £100-£200, it would be sad if they meet this fate, but we need to clear out the building in the next month as it is being sold. I haven't put them on ebay yet but will if this leads to no offers.
Please comment in the below and I will try to answer any questions and provide more pictures if requested next time I go and check on them.

Gotta love a little BX14! I really hope these find a good home. I wish I could take them but I just don’t have the time or space.

Hello and welcome

We’re these on eBay a few years ago?

As you say it would be a shame to see them scrapped.

thanks for the replies - yes I think they did go on ebay but didn't sell .
I think the F reg version could be a great restoration opportunity for someone, I believe it is the only one left of this special edition, it is low mileage and really good condition. Personally I don't have the space or skills though.

This is brilliant news! Thanks so much for finding them a home rather than taking the easy option with the scrap man. I hope whoever got them keeps us updated with progress on here. I love a “back to life” project!
