Thank you for viewing my auction. (Now re-listed due to time/money waster - please only send an offer/click buy-it-now if you are certain, viewings more than welcome, thank you).
I've been told that this car can be driven on a motorbike licence and can be towed behind a mobile camper/motor home...

We purchased this car back in September 2008 to help my wife learn to drive.
It was relatively cheap and had minor cosmetic issues at the front after a parking incident with a small post, cracked grill/plastic. (See photos)
My wife had struggled with manuals and I thought this was worth a shot. She did find it easier to use, but, wasn't comfortable using the rear seats with our children on busy roads.

We used the car for a few months and then it developed a fuel leak issue. We purchased a semi-automatic Corsa and put this to one side to sort later.
Unfortunately, I have little mechanical skill and my father is now getting a little old and frail and lives a fair way away.
A few months later we fixed the fuel leak from a perished pipe, but the car wouldn't start... seemed to be sparking, but no fuel making it through, we also put a new battery on. My dad suspected the fuel pump had failed. We stood the vehicle up again and then just never got back to sorting it.
In the mean time, the battery died, the tyres despite great tread, have cracked/perished and would probably need replacing.
The 'mirror' part of both wing mirrors has been knocked off by children playing in the yard. (see photos)
The battery does appear to hold charge as I recharged it last week and tried to start the car, but unsurprisingly, it turned over, but wouldn't fire.
The car does roll without issue, steering, handbrake etc... appear to work as they should, but as I've said I'm no mechanic.
In hind-sight I should have had it towed to a garage years ago, or just sold it on as I'm doing now...
The car obviously has no MOT nor Tax and would need to be trailered or towed away.
The V5 is present with 2 sets of keys and the remote for the door locking.
Also, a front off cd/radio not in the pictures as the front is in a case in the house.
Miocrocar mats in the front.
Under 15000 miles, so interior/seats not badly worn or marked.
It will be sold as seen with no warranty, but I've described the known issues as best I can, viewing advised as sales are binding.

Please ask questions if you have any or arrange to come and see for yourself if you can.
Located in Great Coates, Grimsby.
Hopefully, someone will be able to get the vehicle going again with a little time and effort.
Or use it for useful spares etc.., the alloys look nice :)

I'll accept either PayPal or cash on collection.
Best of luck and thanks for reading,
