I’ve decided to sell my little project that I haven’t got the time or patience to finish due to other commitments/projects.


I bought this car about 3 years ago now, and was aiming at tidying it up and generally restoring it, with the possibility of doing a couple of track days in it in the future.


Generally the car is in good working order, the paint work is a bit bad in places (bonnet, around the aerial on the roof, and on the top of the tail gate, where the previous owner drilled through to fit a spoiler), but the wings, doors, rear quarters and rest of the roof are in very good condition for a 22 year old car. There are some minor spots of rust on the lower rear quarters and a small piece of the top corner of the bonnet but it is all surface rust so quite fixable.


Mechanically it has had quite a bit of money spent on it. The list is as follows;

·         The engine has had the belts and water pump changed

·         both front wheel hub bearings have been changed

·         New clutch and accelerator cables

·         Full Ashley exhaust fitted

·         New brake discs and pads

·         New braided brake hoses

·         New radiator

·         New battery (that has been on trickle charge in the garage at all times)

·         New spark plugs

·         New filters and liquids

·         New brake master cylinder


The car was lowered by the previous owner on different springs and shocks (koni dampers on the rear).


When I got the car it didn’t come with a huge amount of history (a couple of old MOT certificates), so I can only tell you the bits I have done to it.


The car is currently MOT’d, but that is due to expire in approx 2 weeks. There is no Tax on the car as it is currently SORN’d.


The bad points

·         The drivers side front driveshaft seal is leaking slightly

·         There is a small oil leak from the oil cooler

·         The bonnet, front section of the roof and top of the tail gate needs some bodywork attention (see pictures)

·         Drivers side bolster has flattened – as usual with these cars

·         The engine needs setting up properly as it does idle a bit high then low

·         Brakes could probably do with re-bleeding

·         Generally could do with a bit of a tidy up

·         It has the phase 1 style gearbox on it (over and up type reverse)

·         No stereo


Good points

·         She starts, stops and goes very well

·         Has a fairly good set of Yokohama prada spec 2’s on the car – 1 needing a repair as it has a slow puncture

·         Comes with a spare set of standard 1.9 wheels with tyres

·         Full performance exhaust system

·         Full working sunroof

·         Electrics work

·         Interior is in good condition

·         Body work is in pretty good condition

·         Wouldn’t take much for someone with the right knowledge to sort out



I’d love to keep this car, as I am aware these cars keep going up in value, and I love the shape of the car, but i’ve already put a fair amount of money into it, so i’m thinking it would be best to cut my losses and focus on my other project (Clio 172 track car).


I think I’ve been as honest as I can be with the car, but I am no expert and there may be some bits I have missed.


The car is currently garaged, with a trickle charger on the battery. I’m going to just tidy it up over the weekend and give it a bit of a clean and polish (I’m a member of detailing world forum).


I’ve seen a few other cars in a similar condition up for sale for the £1000 – 1200 prices, so I am thinking of asking for this sort of money ono. But obviously I am open to offers for people on this forum as I know it will be looked after.


Please PM, ring or text me for contact details if you’d wish to talk to me or come and see the car.


I would be willing to put a fresh 12 months MOT on the car for the new buyer, if the car sells for something close to the asking price.



Cheers Dave
