A rare chance to own one of the stars of this forum.

Buellboy's old 145 is available as a part completed project, and it comes with almost everything needed to finish it! I ended up with it earlier this year but have had to change my plans and a new job means I'm not realistically going to be able to do it justice.

It is a P reg QV with CF1 electronics, full leather interior, and a fully checkable history due to the search function on here! In its prime this was a really sorted car and there's a vid on here somewhere of it on the Autobahn at more than 140mph.

The good stuff: full leather interior, yellow Koni's, red Eibachs, drilled and grooved discs, green stuff pads, Toyo proxes t1rs. Comes with a dowry of parts needed to get it back to its best: belt kit, aux belt kit, left, right and rear engine mounts, rear axle recon kits. I am unlikely to need them, so you can buy TS timing tools from me separately.

Non runner because: stored since 2013, so I am not prepared to turn it over before fitting the belt kit. Buellboy swears it drove under its own power into the storage unit, though!

The exciting / project bit! Engine requires removing and gearbox separating to helicoil the bolts on the rear engine mount. All three engine mounts need replacement and new parts are included. Downpipe requires replacement. There is a possibility both trailing arms may need replacement; parts for this are included. There is no radio or speakers. The bodywork is scruffy, several shades of pink, the mirrors are white although original red covers are included.

Other than that, usual stuff for something of this age that has been stored: possibility of rust in usual places, surface corrosion on brakes and suspension parts, sagging headliner.

It currently owes me £200 which is all I want for it, but it includes more than that in brand new parts. It'll need trailering away from near Woking.

Any questions ask, but I've been pretty clear about the state it's in and don't want any tyre kickers / time wasters. smile.gif

'Sold' and awaiting collection. Ganz, if it falls thru you could still get those bits.

One picture? One?

To add: the leather seats were mint and included the EXTRA rare and decent condition cloverleaf mats.

The bodywork isn't that bad.
The engine runs and was run for a quite some time but had a injector light on. I'm pretty sure it was the camshaft sensor.

I also have the spare original engine. Both engines good. What happened is my brother ran over a jack that a bloody truck dropped. He flew up in the air and landed and, on landing, the sump smashed. My brother stopped straight away got the car recovered.
But because we were moving house that week, I fitted another engine to it....an engine that I bought from Alfa SA which used to belong to the yellow 145 (don't remember his username but I think his name was Ian).

This was done because I wanted to check the original engine, maybe upgrade it and then fit it back in. But then I moved to Switzerland and I put the car into storage. Which cost me £100 a month for 6+ years haha...

To add: the car was featured in December's copy of Classic and Sports Car Magazine in 2009 (or 2010, can't remeber).

It has teledial wheels and a rear spoiler (it should).

If you want the second engine PM me, it has been dry stored but I definitely think it will need the liners honed to get rid of the rust.

Basically GANZ you got a bargain.
