spiney_norman Posted August 18, 2010 Share Posted August 18, 2010 (edited) As the title says, I've got an 1800 Exclusive hatch near Swansea that I bought with the intention of returning to the road but I don't think I'm going to get around to it any time soon so I'm offering it for sale here. It's going to need welding, I haven't had a chance to have a really good look around but the A posts don't sound too clever when the doors open (you can see them flexing as the check strap reaches the end!) and the driver's footwell is definitely rotten. Roof's got some holes at the back near the tailgate hinges so I'd guess this means the chassis rails and sills are likely to be rotten too, so I'd recommend coming to have a look so you know exactly what you're getting yourself into. The tailgate's rotten but I've got a spare gold one to go with it, and it's got a Monaco blue bonnet at the moment. Also the windscreen's a different tint to the rest of the glass, but I'm pretty sure I can get a full set of bronze glass together if anyone wants that. All that said, it seems excellent mechanically. I've only had the engine running from a petrol can under the bonnet, the previous owner reckoned there was bad petrol in the tank but I haven't had a chance to investigate. It fired up easily, ran smoothly with no knocks or rattles, got up to temperature and stayed there quite happily. It's got a Weber on it that looks reasonably new too. The grey stripey seats have already been promised to Sutty, but I should have a spare set of grey Recaros I can chuck in if needed. It's not beyond saving, but as much as I hate to say it we all know what "those" bits are worth, so it's £400 without seats or £450 with the Recaros. If anyone's seriously interested, I can be contacted on 07866126592. If there's no interest here I'll probably end up breaking it. Cheers!
