1987 BX 16RS (RED)

Post by Patricia » Fri Jan 11, 2019 5:23 pm

We’ve got a low mileage (98,000) 1987 red Citroen Bx which we want to Go to a good home. We’ve had it from new and we’re reluctant to see it go for scrap. it’s always been serviced and the hydraulics have been replaced. It hasn’t been started for a while but we’re confident it could be got going again with a little effort. Is anyone interested?

Not for me thanks but good luck with the sale!

Is it 1.4, 1.6 or 1.9 petrol, when did the MOT run out (or did it fail or have advisories on its last one), is it rusty?

Pictures and location are always good to tempt people too!

Hi Patricia

If you have the registration number we can get the info from that?

Any idea of costs, would be a shame to see it scrapped.

Sorry, not checked into the forum until today! The Reg is F887 EFM. We would much rather it went off to a good home then the scrap man take it away.

According to DVLA its a 16RS, also hasn't been on the road for over 12 years as no MOT history, has it been stored inside or out

For the last 6 years or so it’s been under shelter but outside.
