Roadrunner

I am asking £2000 for my rare 87 Roadrunner which I sadly have no more use for. I have owned it since 2011/12. It has a later (circa 1992 ish) Cummins Recon BT5.9 low emission engine fitted. At 130HP it pulls well and does up to 30mpg on my many trips to sw France where I am now relocating to. I have done about 15 trips with no breakdown cover and no fear that it would let me down. It was once a Porsche Race Team transporter and workshop, so has a workbench, 2 ramps that hook onto the 1000Kg Taillift, made in Scotland.It has 400k KM on the clock and is mot’d until the end of June 2019.

Since I have owned it I have improved it greatly but it needs a bit more tic to improve its looks. Mechanically I have in the past year fitted new rear wheel cylinders and brake shoes and a new Numax 120Ahr battery. Previously it has had 2 new front tyres, shock absorber bushes, track rod dust boots, water pump, fuel shutoff Solenoid, new filters etc. When I purchased it it had no air filter element fitted so I decided to remove the cylinder head, grind in all valves and fit new valve stem oil seals with new head gasket, injector copper washers etc. This improved the power and minimised oil consumption, which is very low.

The pictures show a tool cabinet and 3.5 ton winch assisted by a 200Ahr auxiliary battery which I intend to remove prior to selling. should a buyer need these for motor transport use they can be refitted for a negotiated sum. These 3 items cost around £1000 alone so are only possibly available at extra cost.

It is located in the Guildford Surrey area for viewing, but will be making another return trip to france from 23rd July. It may not return until around 10th september when it will remain in a secure yard until sold.

I will not have email after 21st July so anyone interested should contact me by texting my mobile so I can return the call. Calls cost the same as uk even in France. mobiles are:- 00447881781266    or  00447881271432.

Leyland Olympian

Leyland Olympian bus. Registration F802 NGU

It’s recently picked up a couple of problems so we are going to either scrap it or find out if someone would like to preserve it.

The two faults are there is a bolt snapped at one end of the prop shaft.
Secondly there is some water mixing with the oil possibly through one of the cylinder heads.

If you or anyone you know may be interested in taking this on then I would be happy to sell it for around £500

My number is 07786550579 email: info@fargocoaches.co.uk

Kind Regards
