"Small restoration", Barry

Equals sh*theap...

No doubt you will buy it anyway for six British pounds, twelve shillings and sixpence

PS apparently it has had a new "timing chain" fitted. Sparky is gonna love that one. I wonder if they went for duplex or triplex?

I’d not touch it chap - but have to admire the plate on the front wing. Reckon it would have been easier to get the grinder out and the resin kit

Will someone buy that for me? I'd be ever so happy.

Ha ha, Barry has already volunteered to replace the petrol tanks with stainless ones, all round new suspension, hoses, braking and probably the turbo. All gratis as he is such a nice bloke and just loves to keep four pots on the road

Oh and he will give that front nearside wing some extra special loving with Play-doh and reupholster the seats with his special treatment of Cherry Blossom and a good hard wire brush

I'd have a very clear checklist of work for that car:

  • Disinfect seats.
  • Drive car.

Ok I'd check the fluids and replace the side repeater too, but that'd be it. It'd look good with a roundel on the side bearing the SOUP nozzle

  • Lose it on the first bend as the suspension was previously ****ed
  • Get up close and personal to an oak tree
  • Agree Cat A and retire gracefully with healing wounds
  • Buy a V8 with the insurance payout and the compensation from an 800 year old oak tree that had been paying in forever
  • 350bhp, 0-60 in 4.3 and you live a full and happy life

I would never harm a tree 😅

Nah, he's from Pikey Land (sorry, Swindon Town and the Jills have a long and mutual dislike of each other) so I would expect the high teens. Unless you want to p/x a caravan?

Anyway, the tree would suffer no harm. It would dispose of that travesty though...

Are you really serious about wanting it?

PS be warned

Oh yeah if it was cheap... 

What are Jills?

Edit; hang on was that the one that came up a few times, without the wing repair, and for around £9k iirc? Also I've no intention of buying it. Chance would be a fine thing.

Don’t think I’ve seen this one for sale before
