Nissan Bluebird 2.0 GL estate - new MOT! For Sale (1989)
|Was owned by a local elderly gent from new till 2015, he then had to stop driving, he sold it to another local elderly gent who promptly had a heart attack & had to stop driving too, I then got it from him around 8 months ago. |
Its only done 71,100 miles, I've done around 1500 of those, including a trip to the south coast with my family (my son liked the reclining rear seats!), it was perfectly happy on the motorway, as it is in town, but I noticed some clutch slip when accelerating at high speed, so a new (Ferodo) clutch was fitted, the front outer CV gaiters were also done at the same time as they were starting to show cracks, its 100% fine now & I`d have no concerns about driving it any distance!
Edit: New timing belt, alternator belt and PAS belt + thermostat & antifreeze as of 13/11/17 @ 71,101 miles & new MOT so now MOT`d till 15/11/18!
It was rust proofed from new (as shown on its original sales invoice at the local Nissan dealer, Ironside of Winchmore Hill), so theres no rust & hasn't had any welding in its 28 years (and doesnt need any). It still has its original Ironside number plates, rear window sticker & tax disc holder. There are various minor city scuffs & a few 1" dinks on the bodywork as you might expect after 28 years, also the NSR door was hit last Christmas by a passing 4x4 or similar who drove off (no insurance claim was made), this has been repaired but the paint match isnt perfect.
The interior is very good overall, with a tiny area of wear to the drivers bolster & some staining to the boot carpet (looks like it would clean out). Its all original, including the original (& still working!) separate radio & cassette deck with ceiling mounted rear speakers (the original speakers work but are perishing, I have got new Pioneer & Alpine speakers for it, which I`ll try & fit if I get time, or, will be included in the sale).
Everything works perfectly well apart from the heated rear window, which I`ve not looked into.
Overall it's a very original & remarkably clean for its age. Its practical, reliable, easy to drive and very rare (theres thought to be less than 15 legal estates left on the road, few of those are in this condition or with this mileage). Its a retro classic that's quite happy to be used daily and ready to take on the next 28 years!
Would also look great in an 80`s drama, I can see it picking someone up from a train station with a Taxi sign on the roof!
I`m still using it several times a week so the mileage will increase, its fully legal (obviously!) and I`m located in outer north London, near South Mimms services and I'm happy to collect people from local train stations if necessary.
