I think they ought to take offers close to £300, only if it's got a year's ticket though :lol:


And it's a slush box :!:

I'd give them the £300 for it, Colin!!!! Or did you miss a '0' off the £300?
Better if it was manual o/drive, I agree but can anyone be too choosy with something that is quite a rare opportunity?

Either way, it's a lovely car and worth every penny. I could see this fetching 5k easily.

Now what about that ripe as a rotten pear PI estate that I have just been told about. Apparently the body is so far gone that I MAY get a bit of the roof as a repair section :lol: and mechanics may be iffy after standing idle for a couple of decades.

Mind you it may just be hot air and nothing comes of it!

My wife's 1974 2000 MkII pre-facelift Estate had a pair of HS4's when we got it.

Currently on a 2000TC engine with a pair of HS6's. But we are going to change it back as the economy with the later engine is dreadful. :roll:

Bear in mind the Estates probably trailed in production compared to the saloons.

Obviously the £300 offer was very tongue in cheek.
It would be worth at least £5k imho, if you have sills done properly and a good repaint on an estate or saloon that you already own you won't get change from £5k and it's been the equivalent of four RBRRs from Doncaster ......in it's entire 40 year life.

Very tongue in cheek!!....I'd expect a boot full of genuine Stanpart spares as well!!
But this brings us back to the age old argument that you are better paying a 'reasonable' sum for a straight original car than throwing thousands at a a cheaper car requiring part restoration........

I'd always be prepared to pay plenty for a car with a good body. Mechanical work is relatively cheap by comparison. Just about finished putting a 1979 S back on the road, parked up for the last 6 years but body is pretty rust free. Mechanically cost about NZ $1500 for tyres, steering rack, mounts etc.
I should have a good car when finished, (I hope.) :roll:

I think I would be 'hung, drawn and quartered' quite easily, if I did, considering my current fleet of Triumphs and 'modern' cars..!!!

For those interested in the result of the sale of this car, Pete (C P Sargent) has informed us that it fetched £5400 today at auction! Not far short of what many had estimated! Lets hope it ends up with a Register member!
