Ranger for sale from club member

Post by LeeSample » Fri Oct 20, 2017 12:53 pm

Hi all,

Derek Smith is looking to sell his Ranger, and would prefer to sell it to a club member who will get it back to its former glory. details as follows:

This ad for my Rickman Ranger, which I have sadly decided must go after sitting on the drive for a year. I no longer have the energy/time/health to continue to carry on with the refurb of this great car. Several hundred pounds have been spent over the last two and a half years by the previous owner and myself, mainly on the suspension, steering, brakes and cooling system. I can supply a full list of work carried out to date, on request. The V5 is present in my name, is correctly registered as a Rickman Ranger. The car will need to be trailered away and it is cash on collection, with no returns.

What needs further attention

1. Big-ends rumble on start up.

2. Gear box jammed in 2 gears.

3. Diff front oil seal leaking.

4. Rear anti-roll bar needs refitting.

5. Some wiring issues.

6. Door cards need re-making/recovering.

7. 2 front seats missing.

8. Replace sound proofing/carpeting.

9. Whilst the body is generally in very good condition for its age, the bonnet gel coat not good.

Parts supplied with the car

1. S/H ignition coil.

2. New distributor cap.

3. S/H electronic ignition module.

Parts available (by separate negotiation)

1. S/H Mazda RX8 6 speed gearbox with gear lever and clutch slave cylinder, plus propshaft £150.

2. A pair of Rickman ABS door cards with pockets £20.

3. 4 Peugeot “Speedline” alloy wheels with good tyres £80.

4. S/H 4 speed gearbox £30.

5. Gearbox oil seal/gasket set £25.

6. New quick shift gear lever £25.

7. New steering wheel in blue £20.

8. A pair of Alfa Romeo leather seats, blue/grey £80.

9. Roll of light weight black carpet £15.
