Early k11 for sale?

I’m looking to sell my Ford Fiesta from 2014 and buy an early generation low mileage k11 instead as I want to purchase a car outright to remove the monthly payments and save some money, anyone know of any for sale or the best place to find them? Red Black or white would be great but not exactly fussy, Yorkshire based but will look nationally

I recommend not that early for rear sils strength. My 1993 Super S gave up on a four column bridge and I'm not sure what to avoid and what to want but later Micra's I saw on scrap heap definately have stronger sils. Just quite enough even a little over if you ask me.

ahhh okay, thank you, I have a friend that’s a mechanic so he would look over any car that I was interested in to make sure it’s okay but thank you for your advice I didn’t know this was a problem, I just find the pre face lift version to look nicer
 
I get you. I just have no clue where rear sills became stronger. Though other people here will know. And if it happens so you like the not so strong rear sills Micra, it is no show stopper. It just means no mechanic may use a four coloumn (been there, car can't take this this also counts for professional mechanics, doesn't happen much but just enough) and you never may use a jack on that point where Nissan says you may jack it (sparing). There is a work around for DIY and that is jack it from rear center only (lowering might become issue here) and support rear axle. I am aware this is a long text but it depends more on who you are then on the Micra itself. I can post the dents and show you what happend. You do not want this :)

I have my late mother's silver K11 Micra LX 1.0 3dr manual in silver 45k miles. I took delivery (for my mother) early '94 and used it for a few years after she stopped driving. Loads of service record.
Now the downsides:
1. I stopped driving when kangerooing when hot. Suspect usual throttle body resoldering required but didn't get down to fully diagnose though.
2. Usual bottom of front wings rust. Easiest to put new bolt on wings on?
3. Less easy are rusting sills. (I understand now likely due to blocked sunroof drain?) Needs both new welding on so probably job for someone who could do themselves to keep costs under control?
4. Battery is dead. Needs new.
As result of the above is on the drive, with no MOT and not running. If anyone interested in project, perhaps for spares on another vehicle then let me know. Will need to be trailered away though.
