I'd buy it just for the steering Wheel, but what would I do with the rest.

They cannot be serious! Sadly, they probably are...


First Triumph: 200cc Tiger Cub. Followed by in no particular order, 350 and 500 Royal Enfield Bullet, Herald 1200, Herald 13/60, Mini 1275 GT, Vitesse 2L convertible, Audi 80, Audi 80 Sport, Fiat 124 Sport Coupe, Triumph 2000, Mk 2 Estate, Fiat Tipo, Fiat Stilo, Fiat Uno, Peugeuot Turbo Diesel(yuk), Lancia HPE 2000ie (wow! a dream!) So far 3 Heralds and My fourth Vitesse in the garage. I may have forgotten some... It's my age.. Oh , Honda 400 four.. Terrifying! And the 2 Renault 5s. Oh, and the Ford Granada 3 litre estate..I think that's the lot.

Blimy - how many different colours do you want on the inside of the car! Wonder if the saturday kid took it in on part exchange and has now been charged with trying to make money on it.

Sure;y it is now destined to sit there gradually rotting away with a £10,000 asking price.

All suspension linkages have been renewed and refitted with poly bushes to stiffen up the notorious bad handling issues.


What an absolute load of garbage!!

Haha, the guy is also selling a second hand clutch for £150, and a second hand Vitesse dash with badly cut / placed extra dial holes for a bargain £100.

Where do people get their ideas of value from??
