1990 C900 SE (Normally Aspirated), Iridium Blue 5dr.

151k

MoT until next month (15th June).

Collected from Essex just over 6 weeks ago, this has been my daily driver for the past 4 weeks (50 mile daily commute).

It drives well and is quite tidy for its age.

Headlining has been replaced fairly recently and the leather seats are in excellent condition.

Both offside doors have some corrosion on the inside and there is the usual rust in the nearside rear boot corner.

The rear wiper is not working and the boot release needs adjusting.
The boot opens but you need to push down on it as you open to release it.

Driveshaft tunnels are good and there were no advisories for the last MoT, it has covered less than 2k since the last MoT.

During my ownership I have replaced the rusty filler flap (had a good one in the correct colour in among my spares), plus a broken wheel arch trim.

Only selling due to the imminent arrival of a 9-5 TiD as the daily driver and the fact I have recently acquired a 2dr C900 Turbo.

As stated there is only a months MoT remaining.
I suspect it may need some work on the brakes for the next one, as the handbrake tends to bind for a while on release and it has developed a recent squeal when braking.
Other than that I cannot see much else that might need doing.
I currently do not have the time or funds to put it through an MoT or rectify any faults if there are any found, plus I could do with the space on the driveway.

If it does not sell before the MoT expires I will have to get it sorted, but will obviously reprice the car accordingly.


Asking £550 for it 'as is' which is less than it currently owes me having just purchased it 6 weeks ago.

No offers as although it pains me to do so I may just break it if it does not sell :oops:
I need a decent bonnet for the white one and the sum of parts remaining will easily return me my asking price.
It also saves me the hassle of sourcing and collecting a decent bonnet.

Car is located in Nettleham near Lincoln.

It will continue to be used until I collect the 9-5 on Friday and will remain taxed and insured up until its sold.

Rusty filler flap replaced with a better one.

I have recently fitted a tape player and cassette storage (shown), these will be removed and I'll refit the CD player that was originally in the car when purchased.

Saw this car a couple of weeks ago... It looks really nice. I was (a bit) tempted but I don't have space.

I don't need any more cars... I don't need any more cars... I don't need any more cars... I don't need any more cars...
