Starting bid is way too high. Thats a high end bid for such a car :roll:
"being used as a kennel car ...." :shock:

Anyway : remember it can be moved by its own, if you set the suspension to low. Then the suspension system can not leak as it will not be pressurised. If the long feed pipe going down to the rear suspension is not shot that is ...

I think with the history of its use for the last year, the sunroof deflector should have been the 1st thing removed & then the sunroof left open permanently :lol:

You would at the scrap metal yard, which is the only place this is heading.

I presume that you are joking? :shock:

If not;

Ploughing through that field and lifting mud into the engine bay will likely rip that coily pipe off underneath at the very least.

If you survive that then, on the road, the exhaust/centre brackets will be in continuous scraping contact with the road.

I tried once when my front strut failed (losing front suspension).to drive it the 20 miles home with rear suspension still up which meant that I was still clear of the road. Even at 10-15mph the slightest bump in the road resulted in violent bouncing on the wishbones, so much so I decided to abandon this plan within a few miles as soon as it was safe to park and then had to effect a strut replacement at the roadside rather than at home! Had I endeavoured to continue to journeys end, I feel sure mechanical bendage/breakage/damage of parts/body would have resulted to the point it would have wrecked an otherwise great car!
