According to LEW production did start in 1996.

This would be one of the first off the production line.

I seem remember someone else posting something about Ettington garage so perhaps the car is known to someone here.

Even though it only has 7 service stamps (it is 12 years old) and would be a prime candidate for piston lining failure (unless engine already replaced)

That reply is 100% scam in my opinion.

Latest update! It's ecoming a bit of a game now...

I told you i am currently out of town with some major problems so pick up isn't an option. Sorry about that... Hope you will understand... That is why I'm offering free delivery and a refund policy... If you think we can do a deal, please email me back with your full name and address so I can start the transaction on PistonHeads. Will wait your email. Thank you.

Here's my reply:-

Hi there,

I know you are out of town and you've said viewing is out of the question but how would you arrange delivery of this vehicle? Either you will be coming back or have to arrange a company to deliver this car. Someone must have keys or access to this car at time of delivery?

In this case, I would make sure I am there to see the car before handing over cash, no matter what time of day this is. Iam sure you can understand.

If you want the cash then this is the only way I would make a deal.

Once made contact with someone advertising a motorbike at well below value, but only through ask seller a question not throug email has he asked,. The bike was being sold Yorkshire way but in the reply it was suddenly in Germany due to his wifes job,needless to say I quickly avoided.

Hi all,

Gut is still trying and here are the latest replies:-

the shipping company doesn't take cash money and doesn't close any deal on my behalf .the method that you suggested seems to be waste of time .

And my reply:-

Hi again,

Firstly, I don't have any details from you, your full name and UK address, and landline telephone number etc. Do you have the documents with you? If so, please tell me the VIN and engine number?

I can check with DVLA if you are the registered keeper.

I can do same day chaps transfer of money if your delivery company won't accept cash. They must have access to the car, so I would meet them, see the car and do the transfer there and then which takes about 2-3 hours to get into your bank account anywhere in the world provided I do the transfer at my end before 12 noon.

You can't fairer than that, I see the car, you get you money wired same day (within 3 hours) and if you insist on delivering the car then so be it.

There's no other reason for not doing the deal, unless this is a scam?
