Mk4 2.3GL Estate

Recommended Posts

One Owner from New 10728 Mileage, 12 months MOT 14/08/2014, Not Taxed as that would involve re registering it and adding an owner to the V5, it is in full working order.

 

The car was my Father's (the only car he ever had brand new) he passed away in April 3013 and the car was left to me.

I have know this car since I was 10.

The reason for selling is that I only think of it as Dad's car not mine and cannot relax in it and enjoy it for what it is, and it hold to many memories.

 

We have had it for 35years I have the original V5 first reg date 01/08/1979 it was used buy my farther as an every day car for the first 10 years then he was given a company car, for the next 12 years it was used for high days and holidays and after that it was used three times a year up on till 2009 when it was taken off the road and I put it up on axle stands until earlier this year I have all of the MOT certificates bar 4 which just are not there I have service history and receipts for things that my farther go and fitted or had fitted to the car.

 

Other than the two front seats the car is complete and all there.

The original seat springs collapsed on the front seats about 12 years ago and my farther was given the two Mk5 Seats by a friend of his which had been in storage for 8 years after the car had been scraped after an accident, I don't have the original front seats.

 

I would like £4000 for the car I will drop that by some for the right buyer.

Wow, a MK4 2.3 GL. :winner: This is the only known mk4 2.3 GL :thumbup: The only other one I've seen is the rotten one that sheffieldcortina broke a couple of years ago, oh and that the highly modified white one fitted with a BOA

 

Good luck with the sale :cheers: I hope it goes to another enthusiast off here.

I would very much like it to go to an enthusiast as that is the type of person my Farther would of like it to go to.

 

As I stated in my first post I'm p repaired to lower the price for the right buyer but I'm not p repaired to give it away.

P.S. I forgot to mention the V6 badge is a Ford Part that my Farther had fitted at Bristol Street Motors Birmingham when he purchased the car, he told me that it's the type of badge that was fitted to the V6 Transit Ambulances.

Thank you for your comments.

 

The box below the ashtray is smiths LCD Electronic rev counter and if you have points fitted it will show the dwel as well, it also has a volt meter and clock all built in.

As far as I can tell from the MOT certificates the odometer zeroed between August 94 and September 95

 

The car has been well looked after inside and out.

nice looking car but the v6 badge is a generic one transits didn't have an eng id (except D if a diesel), the sunroof & missing seats & wheels will put some people off unfortunately.

 

what's the attachment on the ns of towbar?is it an lpg filler?

also what's all the extra wireing under the bonnet?

 

the mileage is abit misleading, as I take it that its actually 110,000 & not 10,000.

these are not criticism's but people looking for a mk4 at your asking price will want a low mileage original car.

a Crayford or "S" meeting this criteria would prob achieve this.

The fitting on the left of the towbar is for charging not LPG.

 

Did you not read post #10?

If you have all of the MOT's bar 4, and you know when the speedo was zero'd, should be simple maths to work out total correct mileage, the lower the mileage, generally the higher the £££££'s, and an estate in any Mk is a good looking motor, good luck with selling.
