    3 Cits and a Pug 4 sale

    A few cars have come up for sale that could be of interest.

    1998 Citroen Xantia wagon, black with tan leather interior, MANUAL box, 120,000 km with books, factory alloys and factory sun roof, car is in immaculate condition and please the most fussy buyers, price $24,000. (I'm told these should retail for around $28,000).

    1985 Citroen CX2500 GTI 5 speed manual, leather trim and alloys. This car has quite heavy rear damage but is still driveable, perfect CX project car. $2,000 ONO

    1998 Peugeot 306 GTI6 2litre 16 Valve and 6 speed box (can anyone think of a quicker way to loose your license), Black with black leather interior, 73,000 km, full history, immaculate condition. Price $27,000 (I'm told anything under $30 is a bargain).

    I have a DS21 injection hydraulic that needs restoring so it'll be cheap arriving next week, I'll let you all know when it arrives.

    Hey David,
    Love reading through you ads (they set me dreaming of a back shed filled with french cars to tinker on). Can you give any further details on the condition of the CX? How much work does it need? How well did it do prior to the accident? Do you know anything about its history service wise?
    Thanks, Rowan

    If you end up wrecking the CX I am looking for door trims for my CX25GTi and would be interested in purchasing same provided they are in good condition.

    Hey Rowan,
    This was the car your car was going to be used for. Remember I said the guy who put the offer on it wanted it to finish off another project, well the back of your 2400 was going to go on this 2500, because he can't find a suitable rust free rear end he's decided to sell it. Rest of the car is OK, typical 18 year old car really but the damage to the left 1/4 panel really means a cut and shut short rear is probably the best way to fix it. Because the body on your car is quite good Rowan he was considering a mechanical transplant into your body.

    Shane and Andrew,

    The DS21 is a 71 model I think (won't really know till I see it), with the late type dash, it drives really well, motor and box are excellent, hydraulics are hard to fault. I'm told the shell is almost completely rust free, the panels look a mess from 32 years of dents and scraps (and rust) but if you look under the bolts ons there is actually a good straight rust free DS21. The car is in Romsey at the moment and is being driven down this week end (now thats confidence).

    David.

    David,

    A point worth mentioning, hasn't the 2500GTi got the wider track than the 2400 and therefore will require the shafts from the 24 fitting in the advent of a transplant??

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    From todays Drive.com

    "CITROEN, XANTIA IMAGE $12990
    year: 1995 kms: 140713 trans: 4A

    body: HATCHBACK colour: Green Metallic ad date: 29/09/2003

    features:

    description: 1995/96 Citroen Xantia Image Auto Hatch, Green with Grey Cloth Interior, Alloys, Rear Spoiler, Cruise. CI50308

    location: Leichhardt, NSW - Sydney;"

    Depends on the car; here's one with double the mileage and only $2K less two years on in a very deflated used car market. Taking values in isolation will always give you the result you want to read, particularly when you haven't a clue what condition the car's in.

    Alan S cheers!

    Thanks David,

    it's to good for me, I was hoping it'd be a rusty parts car (giving me spare parts for an injected car ).

    Xantia's in Sydney get a little interesting. British and Continental have had a '95 which has dwindled from $15k to $12k, and it only has 75,000kms on it. Been there for nearly 12 months!

    Trademarque somewhere in sydney have a '96 with 120,000kms for $10k, yet there is an almost (2001) new (12,000km) wagon in Melbourne for $29k!

    Also spotted a V6 Exclusive around with 63,000kms for $22k, again in Melbourne.

    The wagon would be great and for a 2 year old car, not a bad price, if it wasn't a Xantia. If someone grabbed that for about $25k, they would be doing well!

    Go figure!

    Regards
    Andrew

    Hey guys,

    None of those Xantia's any of you have listed are Wagons, everyone of them is a sedan, go and find a fully optioned wagon and we'll talk, till then Shut up.(It's a bit like saying the 306 GTI6 is to expensive because I can buy a 306 XT for $8,000.)

    Alan S. Your right about the wide track on the CX, I don't see it being a problem though. We were indending to swap the front gaurds and the radiator support panel and both top and bottom suspension arms. I think it's still a better way of fixing it than cut and shutting.

    David.

    Guys,

    all this work for that CX, and Peter has a CX2500ie for sale below at a give-away price eek! eek!

    What gives?? You could spend a bloody fortune trying to 'rebody' a smashed CX GTi, or have a nice CX2500ie for not a lot more. The only difference is the gearbox ...

    Speaking of which, I have 2 good CX tail ends, and a MIG welder ... Hmmm, NO I DO not need another car roll_lau roll_lau At last count 4 CX's was plenty enough ... Though none of them is a CX2500 GTi wink

    ....agreed David, but I know someone who did a swap over using the components but without seeing the car many years ago and then wondered why it kept tearing CV boots mallet

    I won't mention any names though... roll_lau roll_lau this is why I mentioned it although strangely enough it all ended up being OK in fact I can show you a 2400 with a 2500GTi gizzards in it; it ended up getting Liberaced too.

    It looked like this before it got tailended.

    <img src="http://www.aussiefrogs.com/gallery/images/alans2.jpg" alt=" - " />

    Incidentally, as someone who has already done this exercise, it pays to get the entire car as David has suggested & the simplest way of doing the transplant is to haul out the entire wiring harness lock, stock & barrel including the dash (speedo binnacle) as well as the fuel tank, pump & lines.
    Might sound scarey but really is quite simple & not as time consuming as it may soumd and a darn sight easier than trying to sort out a carby/distributor harness to accomodate an ECU with all the attached sensors & fuel injection gear.
