Default 1999 PPD 2.0ltr. Connoisseur

Due to family health issues I have to sell my PPD 2.0 75 Connie in White Gold with Aubergine leather interior all the usual Connoisseur extras fitted plus many more. A/C, TC, cruise control 'Y' spoke wheels plus a set for winter wheels, etc., etc..
Low mileage at around 84k etc., It has all the walnut extras, OEM roof rails, Tow bar, Towing Mirrors, Over mats (plus a new set still in packaging), Boot liner, First Class condition but not used any more. Fully Waxoiled and Garaged all the time - owner since Jan 2012. one previous owner. SORN'd since August 2018.
Well maintained over the years, fitting a new ABS/TC unit and loom, new A/C pump and condenser with desiccant and timing belt the car is absolutely fine; but now never used. It has been garaged all its life with me, I think cosseted is the word.


Asking £2,100 OVNO

It is now used and on the road - passed MOT on Thursday (9/05/19) I can see if it is not sold I may keep it - Drives like a new one, forgot how great the 75 is!

Just replace the front Drop Links as a precaution. What a job if you don't have a 15mm flare ring spanner! you need a 17mm for the new nuts though!

Default Access to the car

Well, we have had a bit of a catastrophe here.

During a gale storm while I was away the workshop steel barn doors have been wrecked. Fortunately nothing inside was damaged, but after temporary repairs for security sake it means the main doors cannot open. They are some 14 foot high and 15 foot wide so you can understand the problem (gently does it!). Access is still OK via the man-door but vehicles cannot be moved in or out until the doors are fixed.

There were some of you that had intended to visit during the next week or two to view the car(s) and classic caravan that are up for sale. This is just to let you know that viewing is still possible but test drives are not possible at this time until repairs are completed.; no date is given yet, please keep in touch if still interested.

All is well again - for the time being. Workshop doors working again up to a point!

I am open to sensible offers on the car now as space is required. The car is on the road until the end of the month then will be SORN'd again as I can't use them all at the same time!
Included is Two WSM;s Roof Rack, OEM towing mirrors and some spares.

How about this....? The car drove beautifully all day yesterday, including reversing etc.
After a reasonable run I came home for a cuppa After a short break I went to turn round in the yard, to go off to Bristol and .... no reverse!

Looking through the forums here it appears to be the reverse piston that has failed, a common traight on the earlier cars. It looks a relatively straight forward in car task but in all honesty I have neither the time or inclination to do it.

Looking at the comments in the following thread which is very helpful and descriptive; [https://the75andztclub.co.uk/forum/s...st+reverse]the repair could be very reasonable by a possible younger at heart enthusiast!

Therefore I have decided to sell it as it is. it is driveable but at your own risk. I do have a friendly recovery chap here who can deliver it.
It is too good (and rare) to break up but I will invite offers, probably around the £1000 mark with all the extras. That's well less than half the original asking price. My only comment is that I am happy it happened to me rather than the person that may have bought it beforehand.
