1989 Citroen BX 16v, genuine field find... For Sale

This is a project that I've had for much longer than I would like to admit. As you can see, it is ready for a brave (but I think feasible) restoration. It is complete and, looking at it from above at least, is fairly rust free by never-had-any-bodywork standards. There is the usual rust at the back corners of the rear door shuts - they all do that, sir - and the inner arches are gone at the front (TADTS again). Apart from that I think the bodywork is in fairly good condition. The A pillars are good, both around the screen and down in the front door hinge area.

The car comes with a full set of spare doors in the correct colour, front wings to replace the ones that are on at the moment, bonnet, tailgate and a non sunroof roof panel that I cut out of another car. I will also include a good pair of headlights. The interior is all there and in reasonable order. The car has aircon (vanishingly rare) which means it also has the alloy sump, which could be used for a supercharger conversion (SC mounts where the AC pump was). I believe the engine will require a rebuild. It went like a train when it was on the road, but when I turned it over today, it spun for a bit but didn't sound right, and then stopped spinning altogether. The cambelt is intact, so I wonder if a valve or two is stuck open. I do not believe the bottom end is seized but I'm sure a top end rebuild would be a good idea.

I'll be keeping the Lumenition HT leads, but will give a set of OEM ones in their place.

The underside will undoubtedly not be pretty, but nobody sees that bit, and if you can wave the sparkly stick then this could be for you! A combination of an excess of other projects and mental health issues, and a lack of a big pile of money and enough time, means I need to let this one go. I believe it would turn a profit if mildly restored; if it doesn't sell before this summer I will be starting to restore it myself and then it will get more expensive. Happy to send more pictures and/ or details. Will not swap for xbox m8.
