Fair play AD, but I just see grief written all over that. The greased up brake pipes (obviously to get it to scrape through its last test) and the rotten sills together with the mileage, just no. Good cars can go wrong and cause problems, but stuff like this, is like welcome problems with open arms. 

Sometimes its not all about the profit. Sanity is priceless. 

 

 

Thanks Jimmy, but its a 14 year old banger and it'll be sold as such :)

The brake pipes really aren't like they sound, I'll video them and show you. I don't sell unsafe cars just to grab a profit.

It looks great in those pics!

Have you spent a day polishing it, or was the bodywork already that shiny?

That will sell quickly!

Best just do a video on the car (warts n all) and post it here once done.

Big balls on you fella, stuff like that i call them either "shitters" or "rats" .........i give them to the local banger dealer to "rat 'em out" 

Don't want any association with the forecourt whatsoever as these punters that come back thinking that they have bought a new car do my nut in!

It’s not worth taking a risk on the brake pipe IMO. You can’t tell how much metal has corroded away and how weakened they are with the naked eye.
