My full name: Liam Meredith

Previously a daily driver,the car has been SORN for some years now, however I have been maintaining it, including oil changes and regular running up to temperature. Unfortunately it has recently stopped firing up. I had Nigel from Motormech kindly offer to look over the car and he gave his opinion and has posted about the car already but I will copy his post below.

"It can be rescued, but will need quite a bit of effort. The exterior bodywork is fairly rust-free, although the paintwork has dulled quite a bit. The arches are pretty good, the sills have a bit of surface rust and one sill is dented from some careless jacking.

However, the boot floor seams are quite bad - the paintwork is blown for a few inches on both sides - I think if I'd prodded it with a screwdriver, I would probably have gone straight through.

From experience, when the boot floor is that bad, there will be more rust underneath.

The engine had been started and run up to temperature periodically without any issues, but has recently failed to start (we suspect the fuel - its been in there six years!)

When I explained the extent of the work required, the owner resigned himself to never getting it back on the road, so I said I'd post something on the forum.

So - if you are handy with the welder or have a very tame bodyshop mate, this could be a decent car to rescue - there are so few 16VT's left that it would be a shame to see this broken for spares."

Much like Nigel I'd love for someone to rescue the car, unfortunately I don't have the time, skills or the finances to make it happen.

As is a non starter it would need to be picked up. I will not break the car for parts.

If there are any further question please ask.

Wow - that didn't take long

I hope its going to someone that intends to restore it - is it a forum member?
