A superb car with a perfect service History.
It drives faultlessly and it looks beutifull
As with all our Gen 1 cars we carry out a Bore check .
This car has no symptoms of bore scoring ie sooty exhaust noisy engine so when we were offered the car thought we had one of the rare few that do not have bore scoring upon doing the bore check we found the start of scoring on cylinders 5 and 6 and bought it accordingly.
It is not at the point of needing a rebuild yet and could probably go on for another 10k miles or more before the symptoms start so here is our proposal.
We are pricing this car low and are offering to rebuild the engine with new liners pistons etc for a fixed 4k as and when it gets to the point it needs doing.
This is basically the cost of parts and engineering work as our labour is in house we can absorb this cost.
There is no time limit on this the only stipulation is this offer cannot be transfered to another owner.
This highlights how essential it is for a bore check on any Gen 1 997 3.8S purchase as this car on the face of it has no bore scoring and the condition and service history would lead you to believe it is clear and anybody buying it at the correct price would be in for an 8k plus engine rebuild within a year or so.
We could easily have sold it as not having bore scoring and not seen it back within our warranty period as others probably would but we have been here too many years to try that on.
At this price even with the engine done at our offer price still makes it a reasonably priced car at 24k its a bargain.
