Northampton, Northamptonshire, United Kingdom
welcome to my reluctant auction for my MK 1 Mexico I searched for a while to find the right one as it was a childhood dream to own one! however I really want a TR6 for the summer so with a lack of garage space and a increasingly grumpy wife I had to choose a car to be replaced!
It's had a no expense spared rebuild from top to bottom front to back in 2011 with new parts at a cost off £3500 (log book states it as 1100 standard with one owner from new).
The car has just sat in the unit only being used three times in total and just covering a total of 200 miles in this time.
Every panel is in good order with no rust or welding patches anywhere, the wings are Mexico type and brand new, they cost £550 in 2011
The floor is totally mint and solid as a rock and it is just as shiny underneath as it is on top. Again with no welding patches anywhere or rust.
The engine is a 2.2 pinto, running a fast cam, carbon rocker cover, RS alloy sump, race alternator, electronic ignition, 3.0 degas twin choke Webber, and five speed box type nine and it drives spot on, pulls in every gear very well. It has just been on the Dyno and set up properly by Northampton Motor Sport with the Dyno sheets supplied
All tyres are mint, wheels are like new .
The recaro Seats where sent off and rebuilt and reupholstered in the Mexico weave and pipping to match the rear seats .
Everything works on the car. And on the rebuild the rad coolant fan was replaced with a electric one .
All spotlights work on main beam flash switch.
The list could go on and on and on .
I could go on boring the living day lights out of you with stuff that it's got on it and how clean and mint it is but am not because the car will sell itself all day long.
So any questions please ask, I will do my best to answer.
It's got 11 months MOT and tax runs out in February 2014.
I am in no rush by any means or desperate for a quick cash sale so please bear this in mind!
Its a a genuine sale but offers are more than welcome. These cars as I know when I wanted one are getting very rare so please only make a sensible offer as I obviously will not sell for less than the opening price nor will I respond to such offers.
Thank you for looking and again if you need to ask anything please do so
