FOR SALE My 1993 Carlton 2.0 CDi manual ,mot march 2019
« on: April 25, 2018, 08:36:27 PM »
FOR SALE due to me having to swap to an auto box  :'(
I'll start with some photo's ,many already know my car
I'll add more info as I go along ,including the mass of spares
 

















MOT till mid march next year IIRC
it's a 20SE (with proof) engine so NON cat test for emissions  ;)
I brought it off Ian Aurther over 12 years ago ,he had it off another TOTALCARLTON member Ray ?
no picks of inside yet ,still using it and all my stuff is in ,pics to follow  ;)
I have a set of the original cdx ATS cross spokes in great condition (steel spare)
the wolfrace wheels (N/s in pics)are correct offset,centerbore,pcd etc set of 4
No service history book but i can assure you it's had a good service every year 
headgasket,water pump cam belt ,top end refurb ,new starter, donuts ,new LUK clutch kit all done by me about 30k ago
recent center bearing prop coupling,wishbone,track rod end,recent brake disks/pads all round ,new alternator,
currently about 162k on the clock
before mot every year i cleaned ,stripped brakes,greased lines,touched up underseal etc so it's been looked after
pictures make it look better than it is ,there are dings and scratches all over,
someone de-badged the boot lid ,looks a mess ,think they used an axe  :D not me
it was a daily driver ,still is currently till I finish checking over the auto that will replace it as my daily driver .
Best looked at in the metal .
will come with loads of spares which i will list soon
price wise ,make me a sensible offer ,PM me if you want to look or want my contact details  ;)
by "sensible offer" i mean  i'm not looking for an offer of scrap value ,nor am I wanting 4 figures ,
I wish I could keep it ,that is not an option

more info, photos and spare parts list to follow


Diff oil replaced march 18
new spark plugs fitted march 18
bosch oil filter and quality 20/50 mineral oil march 18

looks good in all the usual rot areas dave! especially tidy as its been a daily driver,
arches are solid,the brown stain is dirt  ;D
 there's paint scratched off inside the door shuts/arches from me scratching it loading stuff in  :-[  BUT it's solid metal, not rusting from the other side ,I just didn't paint the scratches as people would think the arches have been bodged(rattle cans of paint to go with the car) ,i cleaned and treated it all ,underseal etc 12+ years ago when i first got it and checked/re-sealed it every year since,
lot's of stone chips,minor dents,scratches etc (not all me  :D) but a tidy example ,for age ,many people say wow ,that's nice,used to own one etc etc , to which I reply "you should have undersealed and protected it ,AND kept it "  ;D :D

related to mine, my reg is L---BNR obviously a vauxhall fleet number as the first owners of mine were vauxhall in leicester according to the service book,
There does seem to be a few ANR cars ,many L or GL so you could be right

good luck with the sale dont think it will be around too long?
it's raining  :( so i can't get it hoovered out at the moment for interior pics etc
need to get it sold as the replacement is on the in-laws drive ,and has been over a month  ::)
I'm going to stick it on some internet sites soon if no one here is interested

I was asked about the photos
it is reflections of the clouds in the sky that makes the paint look patchy on the pics  ;)
the only lacquer peel is a tiny bit on the near side mirror case / cover
the rest of the car is just freshly polished like a mirror   ;)

This ,and people then selling and cancelling the listing has spoiled ebay 
NOW ebay won't let you pass contact info ,so people can view a car before they bid
I've already been asked to sell certain parts etc on the listing  ::)
got to go clean inside ,more photos ,answer questions  :(
It may get a full valet IF it goes up in price enough
CBA at scrap value  ;D

Dave the Builder I'm glad to see that your CDi auction is going well on Ebay.
For me these cars are worth more than you're being offered but you can only get what you get. Whoever buys the car will probably get themselves a bargain with all your diligence and hard work not to mention the cash you've injected into the car.

I wish you well.

Thanks djbthatsme

Well I've cleaned it all out ,hoovered ,washed the inside plastics etc etc
scrubs up very good , (I always had floor mats and the back seat spent more time out the car than in)
needs another wash and polish outside now ,ready for the new owner
lots of extra bits can go with the car too ,IF the winning bidder pays and collects promptly
and now bidding is over 600, i'll include both sets of alloys CDX and wolfrace plus steel spare,jack and wheel bace ,again, if the seller gets a wriggle on and collects it quickly , so i can transfer my insurance to the auto . ;)

Winning bidder says his brother bid and is away lorry driving  ::)
I asked him to cancel his bids and change his passwords
need this gone asap (can take 10 days to cancel apparently)

all you ask for is a quick straight forward transaction,sold one of mine on there before xmas,the amount of stupid questions i kept getting was rediculous! the winning bidder arranged bank transfer at the end and sent a low-loader to pick up so all went well for me fortunetly but it is a shame e-bay attracts so many wally brains and e-bay sew it up in my opinion that its hard to take action and leave bad feedback for the wallys just so their website looks good still!

Commiserations Dave, what a world we live in

I'm one of the old school and in those days, the 60s and 70s, your word was your bond.
If you gave your word then it could be depended on, if you didn't keep your promise then it would soon be catastrophic for you. This would soon be known in the small societies that we lived in then and you would be blackballed. Nowadays things are different where people can bid for a car and not live up to their responsibility if they decide to walk away they do just that without any remorse.

Lets hope next time your lucky Dave.
