Mmm sunny ending in K...
Not aware of that one. Is it a fake or the missing one.
Question the ph2 filter and cup badges

People are mental. This will go for silly money just because it’s sunflower. Even though the paint is more like a drearyflower

The car was written off in June 2005!

And then bought November 2005 and by the looks never been used.

Right guys. Update for you all so someone can make an informed decision. I was tempted but it's not for me.

The guys had it a few weeks from s bloke who had an old garage unit. Story goes it drove in years ago for a clutch and hasn't driven out since. He says some issue and a 182 flywheel was installed but its not running.
He hasn't started it due to the belts. So totally unknown if runs drives or moves.

Passenger airbag has gone off so lights on dash with that.
Says shell is OK and may polish up but number of dents on boot roof and both sides. Apparently last 5 years been outside before that in a unit. But doesnt know state of sills.
No history.
Its a shame hopefully someone will rescue it but it's too far and too much unknown for me.

Some useful information, hopefully any one who's interested comes across this thread first.

I had messaged about this also. He said it was taken into a garage when new for clutch and flywheel where it stayed ever since which is why it has no mot.

It also has a ph2 airbox on so its had some fiddling about with, maybe even an engine swap.

have never known anything like this where theres no mot been done on a 21 year old car.

he said current mileage is 63k.

Only worrying thing for me was the advert was listed under a different user name and then was ended. He has messaged back though, as above, and said ebay deleted the advert.

all in all, a very strange advert and situation.

Also 6 keepers in 5 years including whoever wrote it off is some going.

Sadly I won't be the one to save it. Hopefully someone with spanner or bodywork skills will.

I think if it ends at the current bid then it's worth a punt.. anything north of £650 max is a push.

I meant to post about this a few days ago, I've actually been to see the shagger with it being up the road from me.
The motor does turn with a jump pack attached, however won't fire, the surround behind the steering wheel is off and the wiring has definitely been f**ked with, original key and barrel is in the boot! Engine and box is 182, there are some phase 1 engine bits in the boot along with two head gasket sets both bottom end pattern rubbish, there is a bag of lifters in the boot too so some engine mishap has occurred at some point. Its got a huge chav cannon hanging off the back with a riveted plate ruining the rear bumper.
Front of the car is from a silver and black donor, wings bonnet and bumper have all been sprayed badly, chassis legs look straight but panel gaps aren't great on the front. There is major rust under the rubber water channel that runs above the door, so the top of the A pillar if that makes sense. Really major rust is at the rear, the panel where the boot hinges too is rotten, the part of the panel that has the rubber gromits in it taking the wiring from boot lid to car has gone, totally rotten and soft, if I pushed any harder I would have made holes 🤣 funnily enough though the sills are decent, had a good prod and pull underneath and they look relatively solid. Windscreen is smashed, has dodgy lexus style rear lights, he has a set if dynamique alloys for it and a 182 exhaust he was wanting to package in.
It's been plugged in and has a few codes relating to o2 sensors but nothing pointing to a none start issue so makes me wonder if someones bodged a 182 loom in with the engine swap.
I had arranged a buy it now price with the seller and was arranging my recovery man for next few days, however he has ceased all contact now so proceed with caution chaps. It would be lovely if someone could save it but I think realistically it wants stripping to a shell and a hell of a lot of welding work done followed by possibly some chassis straightening to line those panels back up.
Forgot to also mention the fuse box lid was off and and just looked different to my phase 1 fuse box, not sure if it was missing a few or a 182 one is different or in just being a mong 🤷‍♀️
Oh and bonus ball, it's full of mold!

Hope that all makes sense I've just scribbled it down as it came to my head.

I’d say he’s had to much interest in the car..

Are you going to bid?
Aren't going to bother, feels like a timewaste, hasn't got two seconds to message me and let me know he's letting the auction run.
Plus I would only be bidding on it to break it up, I'm not sure if a previous write off has any collectable value 🤔
Doors and boot also have 172 cup stickers on them, makes me wonder how many panels on this car are actually original!

Same here. Was 100% interested but the seller has zero people skills.

there does seem to be that there is more of story to the car.

it would be a shame to break as even being a write of long as the shell isn’t twisted it can be saved..

it does seem that it could be the last missing sunflower which would be a shame to get rid off!

Would be a crying shame to scrap it, but is it going to be worthwhile? 🤔 I mean to do it right there is going to be some hefty welding bills and possibly chassis strengthening bills because the front end panel gaps aren't right and after all that it's still a wrote off motor with the wrong engine, gearbox and wiring, if only I were a richer man!

Would be a massive shame to get rid of and my intention would be to save. Even as a cat D it isnt a massive issue, but the advert and communication you get raises too much suspicion.

how hard is it to write even just a short description…

he’s selling it on behalf of someone who owned the garage where it was sat.. he’s probably the scrap man who picked it up and giving it ago on eBay lol

Interesting as he told me a different story 🤣 He told me he owned the unit next door and had seen this car there for year's and asked for first refusal if it ever sold, the garage where the sunny was kept burnt down, it sat outside for year's then he snapped it up for £500 🤷‍♀️

I just looked at the messages and he has said he’s selling for a family member..

As I was trying to get more information but he was just being vague and not knowing much about the car!

Hmm, the plot thickens 🤣
The story I was told is what he said to me when I went down in person so who knows at this point 🤦‍♀️ feel sorry for whoever buys it if I'm honest

Sounds sadly like it's only good for parts and scrap. Cat d no history. Rust and poor repairs seem to have sealed it's fate.
