That car looks familiar.
The auction site is not one I was aware of, but looks a bit like a UK version of Bring a Trailer.
I am getting the update e-mails now!

How old is that photo Mark? It looks like its been in the wars a bit since then, bent number plate and flat paint.

It may even have been wrapped in a darker green as the engine bay shot looks lighter than the front wings.

As an auction photo it is not flattering.

Can you finish a wrap like that on the inside of the wing? It seems to go over the inner edge and down by 5mm and then the metallic green colour. You can see it on the engine bay photo.

This sold for £28,750. Not a bad price at all.

Sounds quite cheap, depending on what state it is actually in now. 70's are that bit cheaper than 68/9 but it is a 500.

Is that still the case ? I know they used to be but I thought the Fast-n-Furious crowd had pushed 70s up to the same level ?
Seems reasonable money compared to some of the 'project' cars certainly.

I'm sure that's about £10k less than Alan Carrington had it up for about 12 years ago :shock:

yes but you always got the impression that he didn't NEED to sell, like it was advertised just for a bit of entertainment...hence if the car didn't, he would just put the Price UP.

certainly a bullish attitude, but it appeared to work quite well.. eventually...and he always seemed to have very nice cars, which backs that up to a certain extent

Dont think the last few years had been very kind to this car, it used to be loverly, but now looked quite tatty underneath, must have been kept outside on the sea front somewhere, but not an expensive car for somebody

Just found these, at the NEC in 2004
Looks like a bargain now at that price, compared to what it's just sold for! :shock:
