Yes, it might be better to think of Mark's car as half a ton of waxoyl that's been treated with a Citroen BX. :D

Kitch, are you able to have a look at the car & report back on whether you think its worth saving? If there is some work required on it, could you quote how much you'd charge, it may just save this car, & i must admit that i really fancy a valver :)

Mulley - if you're mad enough to drink coffee made from cat shit, stumping up 500 quid for a half-decent valver is looking like the apogee of 'sensible'! Do it - that looks nice! :D

Yeah no problem I'll try and get over there.

Turns out I know the guy selling it. Will hopefully arrange to have a look and let the interested parties know the condition.

Third reply....not only do I know him, having just spoken to him on the phone it sounds like the shell is in excellent condition. Its got a lot of miles on the clock but the engine has been overhauled and it sounds like its ingood condition generally. Its on a H plate so no cat but is probably a 3 row model. Shell really does sound good!

If anybody's been hankering after one to get cheap and do up, this sounds really good!

I once had an H plate 16v with phase 2 body that was the phase 1 2-row ECU (Motronic ML4.1). The interior was the blue/grey phase 1 stripey Monza. I dubbed it a 'phase 1.5'.

The changeover year must have been 1991, since H went from 1990 - 1991. Though I'm sure some languished at dealers for a while and messed up our foolproof system...

Engine has a knock sensor to better cope with unleaded. Some say they're not as aggressive to drive as the 2-row, but the recent dyno day I did showed there was no difference in grunt.

This one's a late H plate, but has the Le Mans interior. And air con, which apparently worked. It's been dry stored since 2008m with the last 18 months under a cover on the current owner's drive.

hmmm, 5 years off the road, it would still prove useful to get an expert like yourself to give the car a frank appraisal of what needs doing to it.

It would be good to have a more in depth view and I certainly don't mind going and taking a look. But that said there's not so much you can check out really. It can't be driven anywhere. I would expect to make a leap of faith of some sort with it, but that said the estate was off the road longer, in worse conditions and went back on the road for 85 quid!

These days with any BX let alone a valver its all about the shell. Not the paint, not the interior, not the history or mileage. The most important part is the shell. This one sounds freakishly good but I'm happy to have a look if anybody is truly serious.
