Rebel for sale - any advice appreciated!

Post by Stornoway Grey » Sun Sep 18, 2016 12:19 pm

Hi all, I would love to get a Rebel Estate and have been looking at this one in East Riding of Yorkshire:
http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C785070
Just wondering if it belongs to anyone on here? I don't know much about Rebels but I notice the engine is 850 so presumably not original? It is a long drive for me but if I do get a chance to go and look at it is there anything in particular I should check/ look at? It is about a 4hr drive from my place - what are these cars like on a 4hr motorway drive, and does anyone know what the cruising speed would be?!!
Thanks all,
Adam

If you don't mind more of a cosmetically challenged project, I know of an 850 estate for sale in Knutsford for half the price of that one :)

No problem with that Oaksey, as long as it is mechanically sorted - I wont have time to work on it for a year or two and so it needs to be MOTd. Are you talking about the one already listed here, I assumed that was sold?
