View Full Version : SOLD:White-over-silver Mk1a Sunroof

15th June 2010, 01:13 PM
Unfortunately, the time has come to sell my beloved Mk1a :cry:

She underwent an extensive restoration last year (see link below) & has hardly been driven since. I have literally hundreds of pictures of the restoration process which I will happily give to the new owner.

I would like to point out, that the clutch change which is mentioned in the above link has NOT been done. I simply haven't had the time but to be honest, the car drives really well & there's no noticable slipping so it hasn't bothered me at all.

The plan for this summer was to detail the engine bay but you guessed it...haven't had the time to do that either! With a detailed engine bay this really would be a stunning car 8-)

The only other point of note is that although it's had a full re-spray, this is NOT to show-winning standard. It is a million times better than the original faded toyota paint job though ;)

In summary:

major restoration last year
58000 miles
4 owners from new
tax Oct '10
MOT Nov '10

£2000 (I feel this is a fair price considering all the work & money that has gone into this car...the alloys & Parada Spec2 tyres alone were £560 & they are as new!)

If you need any further info/pics please PM me & I'll sort it asap

Mark what are you thinking .
I thought you were going to come over some time and do a run with us :lol:

Colin :+:

I know, I know...I definitely need my head examined for selling this one! :o :lol:

Unfortunately, it's just not getting used. A recent change of employer means I now walk to work 8-) (hence the sale of my vRS) & I can't justify having it sit on my driveway anymore.

Don't worry Colin, I'll definitely make the trip home some time soon to meet up with you guys, I'm really looking forward to it to be honest! You never know if someone in Ireland buys it, I could even deliver it & meet ye then! :lol:

ps: I'll have a look in the garage tomorrow for a heater/radio surround (haven't a clue if I have one but I'll have a look n' see) ;)

No problem Mark you will always be welcome to join us, did you see the Mosney pics in the past events section.

Colin :+:

Sure did! Some nice pics, looks like ye had a great day...not too sure bout those burgers though!?! :lol:

Is the mica blue t-bar with the multi-spokes your car? Looks 8-)

I've had a look through my garage as well & unfortunately I don't have a radio/heater surround, sorry. You might want to try Oukie, paulsimms or gafr21; they usually have spares ;)

Thanks For looking Mark and yes that is mine i am well pleased with the way it turned out :+:


27th June 2010, 09:52 PM
well now mark.. :o dont be rushing yourself over here if you dont like the look of our "celebrity cooked meats"... :lol: :lol: but seriously i wont be available for chef duties as gordon and marko have been on the phone as one would expect and i will be busy no doubt for the forseeable future :shock:

How r'ya Ronnie!

I've looked through the Ballymena pics twice now & it seems Gordon & Marco are keeping you busy...there was plenty of lovely Mk1's but not a burger in sight!?!

Looks like ye had another fab day...I'm really envious to be honest :evil:

Also, what's this about an August run? Maybe if I organise myself a bit better I could make that one? Depending on location & whether there is likely to be gourmet burgers available of course!!! :mrgreen: :lol:

16th July 2010, 02:26 PM
well now mark..between you and me i was maybe goin to serve up a dodgy batch and get "celebrity chef sacked..." then if you did make it over i could show you the samples and tastes of our local brew,s... and if you weren,t that way inclined .. well you could just sit and watch me dispatch them.. :lol: :lol: :+:

I'm open to realistic offers on this, otherwise I'll reluctantly be listing her on eBay :(

24th July 2010, 07:55 AM
I would love to buy this as a second 2!

Love the colour scheme and I have to say I am tempted....

Wheres my 6 numbers? :D

24th July 2010, 04:49 PM
I'd love you to buy it too! :lol:

I'm gonna get some proper photos up tomorrow as I think I've been a bit lazy with my original post. I'll be putting her on eBay tomorrow too. If she doesn't sell then I'll very happily hold onto her ;)

I'm in total agreement with you on the colour-scheme. I think it really suits the Mk1 & the alloys set this one off very nicely indeed. You'd be surprised at the number of people who stop when walking past just to check her out!

As for your 6 numbers...I'm open to offers as long as they are the 4 figure type ;)

25th July 2010, 06:46 PM
It's about time I added some pics I suppose...






I'll be listing her on eBay tomorrow :? So if you're interested, now is the time to make your offers!
