    A good friend of mine is offering for sale the above car.
    It is correctly-described as being in very poor condition.
    The attached photos say it all.
    VIN is 10704222010484.
    It's a 280SL auto in silver with both hard and soft tops.
    First registered May 1981 on a W plate.

    I have known this car for about 12 years.
    It has been sat outside for a number of years ... awaiting renovation that never happened.
    It did run OK.
    However, the weather and neglect has taken a heavy toll and it is offered as a project rather than as a runner.
    The water has got into it and there is mould and vegetation growing inside.

    If interested, PM me via the forum.
    I have told my friend not to expect big offers.
    Any reasonable offer will be welcome for the whole of the car.
    Removal from its present home in a works yard in Penistone, South Yorkshire, is the responsibility of the buyer.

    Sorry that the photos have come out at a bad angle to view.
    Here's another.

    About 12 years ago, Mrs Johnsco lusted after that car and begged my mate to sell it to her.
    At the time, he wouldn't.
    Mrs J is pretty-pee'd off to see it now. :fail
    PM me if interested.
    Thanks.
    J.
