Sorely tempted to break the piggy bank

Does anyone recognise the car or shed any light on it

Looks pretty good in the photos, although they're not VVC wheels.

Nothing looks too bad there that a good look over in person wouldn't hurt.

What's a K Series like after 145 k miles? Although perhaps new liners are available?

Beware the silver coupe with the [presumeably] 1800 VVC engine advertised as a 1.6 as the reg' doesn't exist! :scared

I have a 1.8VVC with 116,000 on the clock and the engine still seems to be in a good state of health: no unpleasant vibrations and doesn't use any oil.
