Hi guys,

My neighbour has a Silver MR2 (Mk1) sitting on his drive and he wants rid.

The car is totally immaculate, everything is orginal and under the hoods is mint. I think its pretty much got full service history but its also got every mot since its first one in 1989 !!!

The car has done 98k, interior is also mint...but blue :wack: its the 1.6 petrol engine

The car came off the road in 2007, The owner drove it up the street and let it tick over for a year until the battery died. However in 2008 the battery went dead and it hasnt been run since.

I've had a look and i can see that the drivers floor seems a ok, its already had a patch on the inner arch at the front so seems solid. The passenger side is going to need a bit of welding on floor plan and a patch on inner arch as a hole has started to appear. The only other bit that could need some work is the rear wheel arch on the drivers side. But other than that its surprising solid and rust free.

I've had a look at the engine, and attempted to get it started:

- There is compression
- There is a spark
- It turns over fine, no issues,

- However it wont start, If you use a little easy start it will fire straight up but then die quickly.

On investigation, it seems that the fuel pump isn't priming. I've checked the fuse and it seems fine. Im unsure whether its a relay or the pump itself is dead.

I see no reason why it wont run at all, once the pump is sorted.

You'll honestly not believe how clean it is until you see it, it will be a real shame if this gets scrapped or broken

He's after 300,

Lots of Photos here:
