Hi. Where is this car located? I assume the engine has been swapped if this is really a 1.8 (i.e. not a typo). Was that done recently? How many miles has the motor done? What is the actual reg so I can do a MOT history check.

It is a UK car and it is a 1.8
Engine has not been swapped
As stated mileage 131,000
reg R93UYB
Car is SORN

We are Located in Rutland near Oakham just off A1

Ah, I see. The typo is in the date. Apparently the car was first registered November 1997, which would make it a 1.8 as you have stated.
Would the car pass a MOT as it stands, or have you stripped essentials such as lights in the name of weight saving?

Sorry Date Typo now been corrected to 1997

Car would not pass MOT test
Car is stripped
It could be put back as a project

Interesting. Apart from tyres and cat, what else would need to be re-fitted to get a MOT?

Fred_Gassit…are you interested in a track car or are you just wasting my time and energy
Stop picking fault…“It’s advertised as a track car”
Put up or Shut Up

How am I “picking fault”? I did wonder about the discrepancy in your initial advert, but there was a typo and you corrected it.
I am interested in a new track car, but it needs to be driven to and from events, hence the query about what would need doing to get it roadworthy.
But anyhow, good luck with the sale.
