24v Project

My new project in its new home for the foreseeable future. She will be getting the same care and attention that Goldie and the Sinker have. The paintwork is shot and needs taking back to the primer if nothing else. Although there is rust on the edges of the doors, bonnet and hatch the panels are pretty solid. The interior is generally good but will need pulling out to sort it properly. The underside is a different story however. Much worse than Goldie and in need of complete stripdown to bare metal.

But before that I need to remove the front end as the starter is toast and I need the engine running to move her about.

Looking at two years to bring her back to former glory.

If goldie is anything to go by you will do a stunning job on her which she well deserves..

I look forward to watching progress.

It's good to see this 24v is being saved.
The undersides of pretty well all UK Xm have a decent amount of rot when you look. Nothing that can't be sorted with some effort.

I thought you weren't bothered about having a V6...? ;) :D

When you compare the undersides Goldie's was in a different class. This one will come back but will take a lot more work.

The V6 engine isn't the driving force here, it's the age. I've looked at many cars over the past year but either the car or the time wasn't right. This is one of the oldest S1's and maybe the oldest known 24v. That's the interest.

We have a parts deal already with Neil where possible..

Most likely items that no one else wanted to buy..

But she should end up a good stunning car like goldie..

Please do let us know something about the history of the car and is it earlier than Paul's former 24v? It sounds like you have quite a lot of work to do Neil and clearly not one for the faint hearted!

What do you mean by a 'parts deal' Paul and if Neil has what he needs that is fine! With regards, Matthew T.
