Morning and welcome to the bx club

Mk1 cars are pretty much extinct now, they do show up very rarely on eBay etc, but are normally snapped up quickly

Unlike most Mk2 cars, alot of the surviving Mk1 are petrol instead of diesel

You may need to look further afield (France).

Good luck finding a rust free one, unless you're particular about having the mk1 dashboard the other option is to get a mk2 and swap the wings. Even still they'll prob have rust issues, it was the bx's biggest killer.

They do show up Ed

What I would say is buy on condition more than colour/spec and be prepared to get your hands dirty or find someone to work on it

A mint Mk1 BX that needs nothing you wont find unless its been fully restored.

No half-measures, then!
Do post some photos and details.
