Good price - check the rear floor for rot and also rear body mountings can
get iffy. If manual, check for gearbox play - 's just cost me a grand for a
recon box, new T-box gear and fitting for mine. 98K is OK on the engine if
it's been serviced regularly. Mine's currently on 108K and (touches wood)
seems to be running nicely - it didn't have FSH as such when I got it, but
had quite a good history even so.
