Early mk1 1.6 project for sale, £650 firm.

I've had this car for about 8 years, gradually improving it, and no longer have the time to fix it. For an MOT, it needs nearside rear sill repair - I have the panels but no time.

Good points: Everything works, it runs and drives well, engine and transmission are running quietly on ~170K miles. Very original UK car, not an import, with good interior, solid drivetrain - strong and quiet engine and gearbox, fairly recent cambelt change, brakes and shocks all good, no knocks from the suspension, oil regularly changed. Early 1.6 car with power steering and electric windows, not the later detuned version. Not mucked about with - the only mod is a stainless tubular exhaust manifold. Even has its original Clarion stereo.

Bad points: may have been a cat C writeoff long ago, has small rust patch at LH top corner of screen frame, paint faded and lacquer peeling on LH front wing so needs re-lacquer/polish, minor oil leak, and as mentioned the rear part of nearside sill needs work (drivers' side has been done) - might get away with a patch for now.

Has potential to be a good car, and if no interest I will keep it and repair it in the Spring. Last MOT ran out around July, but runs, drives and stops well. Located near Leamington Spa, viewing recommended.
