|Drive Side:||Right-hand drive||Mileage:||125,320|
For sale is my Audi Coupe 100 Sports, first registered in October 1972.
I am the 4th owner, the first had the car for 4.5 years, the second for 21 years, the third for 1.5 years and I've had the car for 13 years.
Most of the milage racked up was from the first two owners, the total of miles when I took over was 114800, and I have done 10500 miles in 13 years to bring the total to 125320.
The car is a 1871cc and drinks unleaded petrol.
The main reason for selling is that I live in central London and the car is just about redundent for me as I cycle and catch local transport.
In the last 6 years I have only done 1100 miles and my garage said that the car is having more harm done to it while being static rather than used for driving.
The car has been serviced and MOT done (expires 25/9/13), tax finishes 31/10/12 but car is tax exempt being 40 years old.
The car has had no major refurbishment done to it, just spending money to keep it on the road and keep corrosion at bay.
However, the mechanic at the garage said that the audi can go for a few more years as is, then it will need a major overhall to bring it back to pristine condition.
Advisory notes on the last service and MOT are follows:
Engine oil leak at the Rocker cover gasket.
Slight play in the steering - tightened by the mechanic.
Exhaust pipe - hole in centre box plus corrosion.
Alternator belt - oversized and noisey (usually only on cold days or nights).
Front brakes seize (usually after driving for longer that 20 mins, I used this to take the car out of gear and slow to a stop at traffic lights,
but the siezing usually stopped about 20-30 minutes later on long journeys).
HT leads do not fit tight.
Worn valve seals, Engine oil passing through (mechanic applied some temporary sealent, but will need to be replaced).
Rear brake shoes/hub corroded - low efficiency (although all brake shoes replaced 4 years ago and only 400 miles done since, lack of use has proved it's undoing!).
The bodywork is in good condition, with signs of bubbling on the nearside door, and the paintwork beginning to chip in places (see picture 7).
Also, the colour orange is in 2 tone, the rear slightly darker than the front, due to me being rear-ended and the car needing repairs and respray at the rear.
Other niggles include the offside mirror missing (torn off by new year revellers, I compensate by adjusting the inside miror to point offside), radio ariel doesn't rise
(I use the tape player, how old fashioned!), passenger seatbelt sticks when pulled too fast, boot lock works only when slammed hard, dashboard has a crack in the centre,
lights for main dashboard don't work (not sure if the is light bulb or fuse related), inside decorative seal around doorframes and windows coming loose and needs attention,
plus other small things that would be fixed if you had another handy 100s to rob these parts from to keep the car authentic.
Coming with the car is all paperwork regarding services, MOT and car tax discs, not fully complete but will give good history of the car.
The main garage who dealt with the 100S and ran the Coupe Club of GB was in Raleigh, Essex, but the owner retired this year and so I'm not sure if it has been taken
over and if parts and pieces to keep things authentic are still available (although there is larger availability for these in Holland and Germany).
When last speaking to him in 2009, he said there were around 25-30 on road Coupes in England, with around 100 off road or used for scrap and parts.
I've given you a warts and all explination for the car, so you know what to expect.
Although the car is fine for driving and could be like this for a few more years, it will need money spent on an overhall at some point in time.
Do not bid for sentimental reasons, i.e. 'my dad used to have one of these cars' or 'the car just looks amazing', you either want to bid because you
have enough cash to pay a garage for a nut and bolt restoration and then reap the rewards, or you have time and money on your hands to eventually restore it yourself.
For all of those who like to see the specification etc, extra reading material on
Any further question please contact me but don't expect too much response on the technical side of things.
The winning bider will need to collect the car from Vauxhall, London.
I don't see any reason why it cannot be driven away to any destination that is under 2-3 hours away, but over this I'm unsure as
the car hasn't done such a long journey of this time since 2005.
I will send an advanced Paypal payment for £100 on the close of bidding, the rest in cash please otherwise it's all swallowed up by Paypal costs.
UK bidders only, zero rated bidders will be removed.
Also no tyre kickers, time wasters etc etc etc.
Thanks for looking.
