Good Reliable 800 Wanted

Post by RoastBeef » Sun May 09, 2010 1:00 pm

I've been looking for the right 800 for a few months now, but due to the sudden 'death' of my beloved Volvo, I need a replacement car asap. We have a trip to France planned very soon and were going in the Volvo, so I now need a very reliable car, very quickly to do this journey in. I prefer the 827, but would consider others. It need to be an Automatic also. Please contact me if you have car you think may be suitable for sale.

Hi, I guess your about 4 hrs away, which is a bit far I think, hoping I can find something a bit closer to home. Thanks anyway

'Afternoon,

Not sure whether or not you know about it, but my black 827 Si fastback is for sale if you're interested? A new battery and you're away. Not quite top spec, but with a new battery it'd definately see that you get to France and back in a comfort and mid-range luxury!

For info, see:
http://www.rover800.info/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4485

and

Distance would be an issue though, possibly, as I'm down in Swindon.

Any questions, feel free to PM me.

Thanks,

Swindon is less than 2 hours from B'ham, depending on which part of Brum you're coming from.

Dan, I take it the viewings didn't go well last weekend then? You mentioned you had two buyers coming over after seeing your C&C ad.

Bit of a disastrous week to be honest, I've nackered my back somehow, had two drama exams and a cancellation and a no-show. So it's still here, sat on the drive. Jump-started it today when another bloke came to view, but he insisted that it was only worth £150 and that was the best offer I was going to get. Otherwise, not so productive thus far...

Not all bad though Dan, as I've effectively finished college until september I can start work and have expressed interest in a fair few jobs to fill the weekdays - hopefully, I'll have about four jobs on the go in the next month so I may be able to insure it after all :lol:
(although, as with many things in life, I highly doubt anything like that would work in my favour, so not pinning any hopes on finding another job soon..)

Otherwise, it's still here. Why, you interested? ;)

For what its worth - I am amazed you have had so much trouble shifting what is a great 827 Dan! £150 is an insult, no question.

As you know, very nearly bought it myself, just got too many other distractions on the go, that's all.

Would recommend that RB gets on a train with a battery and a fistful of crumpled tenners without further delay...

If I'm honest Tim, I've not really tried hard to sell it - It's been more of a 'need' to sell it, rather than a 'want' to sell it. I'm happy to work all summer to pay the silly insurance prices (which have got slightly cheaper over the past month - 'new driver' syndrome is wearing off perhaps?) but if somebody comes along in the meantime and wants it to tinker with and use, then I will admit defeat and let it go to get something more 'sensible'.

Of the few cars I've owned so far, this one is proving most difficult to part with, for 'emotional' reasons rather than 'can't shift it' reasons.

£150????? :shock: I hope you told him to Foxtrot Oscar!! I sold my Rover 216 today, and got £200 for it, so to say your 800 is only worth £150 is taking the p*ss!

No Dan, I'm not interested I'm afraid, as much as I'd like an 800 again, we only need one car in the family now, and the C Class estate is fulfilling all its needs........one day I'll have another one....... :D

Good luck with the sale, or, even better, with the job front so you can insure it yourself....... 8)

It's worth at least £200 for scrap just for reference.
