Anyone got a good condition 142 or 144 they’re thinking of selling? Definitely not looking for a project so after a car with minimal body/rust issues, mechanical or electrical issues no problem. Please get in touch if you have one available. Cheers, Mitch

I think you will be very fortunate to find a good condition 142 or 144 for sale at a reasonable price, 'Khe Sanh'. Have you considered extending your search to include Sweden? It would be a LHD, of course, but they do crop up from time to time. There would also be the cost and admin of importing the car, but that is not unsurmountable, and you will almost certainly have more choice.

Regards, John.

Thanks John, I’m not looking for a bargain, looking for a decent car and am certainly willing to pay the going price for a top end vehicle if there is such a thing in the U.K.

Certainly wouldn’t rule out importing one if I did find one but it is a lot more hassle so would need to be a decent one.
