Looks so lovely! And really taken care of as even the engine bay looks dry iced. An absolute bargain for the current £5000 ( but I am sure tha tit will fetch more)

The owner will bump it up that's why it's on private bids it won't be a genuine bid that wins i can guarantee it 😏

Oh really? I'm sure that never happens on eBay.......🤥😉
Chuckle - aye - too many early bids are the surest sign of creative shill bidding.

A very very round number for an eBay auction :)
Very odd pattern of bidding too, for an EBay auction. Lots of regular bids, in round numbers, throughout the life of the auction. Normally Ebayers delay bidding until the final hour, or even minute, and the auction price then shoots up. Just like an ordinary auction in fact.

Who bids £4,900, £5,999 or £6,950 in an EBay auction? Normally people bid "just over" a round number.

Curious.

I have run into these sort of sellers countless times and they are bloody infuriating - especially if you waste time viewing in person. Very coy about what they want, “just going to let it run to the end”, predictably win auction themselves then contact afterwards saying the highest bidder was a timewaster and do I still want it. Etc.

If you want £8k, just advertise at £8500. Why the nonsense!

(Not saying the seller of this car is one of the above!)
