well firstly its a 1996 red corsa merit 5dr. it has 150,000 on the clock. suspected head gasket gone/going. its red so guess what? yep pink paint lol.

now is it worth gettin for £100? been quoted £100 to fix the headgasket + service :D but will it be ok being a 11 year old engine with 150,000 on it after the fix & service?

so to recap....

'96 corsa merit 1.2 5dr
headgasket gone/going
150,000 miles
faded red paint......

worth a gamble for £100 n if it fails, scrap it for say £70 n cut my losses or just leave it?

any comments, please post away! :D

I would buy it for a 100, as long as the bodywork is in good nick. Could always do an engine swap.

Hey mine's done 150,000 miles & the paintwork is still red. Few scratches here and there, but that'll be sorted soon ;) The engine is still brill. I paid £600 for my car.
