Been looking for a late lhd 1600i Mexi for some time but everything i found was a rhd conversion and not what i wanted. As usual, last Thursday evening whilst searching the web i spotted on ebay a 1984 lhd Mexi, had only been listed a few minutes previous but the pictures showed it to be a clean tidy example with a very solid pan and shell. A quick couple of questions to the vendor and i made a decision i was having it, so i did the one thing you shouldn't do, and i bought it blind, i.e. without viewing it.
The following day, that being yesterday, i transferred the payment to the vendor, again, i know a huge risk and one we should never do, arranged for it to be couriered to me this morning, and i took delivery of it just before 11am this morning, just over 36 hours after first seeing it on ebay.
Well, what can i say, it is as solid as any bug of this age i have seen before. The pans and channels look original and unwelded, the front inner wings and spare wheel well are shiny and still have factory stickers on, and it drives really well.
Ive only took a single pic for now but it should give an idea of its condition
