  1. The way the auction went today is 90% of the Cars didn’t make there estimate and as I believe the reserve is within the estimate that’s how they work it . With the Essex it was below the estimate but they will try and do a deal with the seller and the winning bidder so who knows. Thats why they put in the small print you can’t sell it within 28 days without paying the sellers commission so they can still try and put a deal together .
  2. VAT is definitely payable as Coys are VAT registered
  3. Don’t forget there is a sellers fee of 10%+VAT of the selling price unless you do a deal with them
  4. They are 100% correct you will never get a perfect colour match with a metallic colour without blending it , let them blend it or you will never be happy with it .
  5. The other thing to look out for Gary is there is a filter inside the oil tank on the pick up . The guy restoring Essex 21 sent me these pictures of a before an after .
  6. The car is definitely for sale , anyone seriously interested in buying it is welcome to pick up the phone and discuss it with me .
  7. Did you manage to sell the active car Stuart. ?
  8. Yes there are plenty of SJ invoices in the paperwork I am also kicking myself that I did not take the cam covers off of the US copy they would of gone nicely on this one.
  9. Has your one got Essex cam covers Barrie ? I know out of the four I have had two of them did and the other two didn’t. Saying that number 018 didn’t have them but the owner had managed to get some which he gave me so really only one out of the four had them .
  10. You can’t be sure of that it might be less . I am just waiting to see if I get any decent offers in or I will keep it . Andy for 120k I will move exactly where you want it no problem
  11. Sold ! Do you want my bank details Pete ?
  12. I have four spare wolfrace fronts I was going to sell them in pairs but may separate them. Give me a call on 01245 248143
  13. I have had lots of Esprit engines rebuilt we pull them out put them on a pallet and send them to Peter at PNM Engineering 0151 6306 101 .He does an excellent job very clever helpful bloke and skilfull engineer and has rebuilt hundreds of Esprit engines. The only down side is he is not the quickest but if you are not in a rush this should work for you.
  14. This is probably because it is registered as condition inspected , meaning it was an insurance total loss but the repair has passed an inspection carried out by Autolign.
  15. The guy who sent me the pictures said it was 1989 so I can only go by what he tells me . And yes you are correct that is number 5 but not in France I own it now I bought it a few years ago .
