Pair of Vanden Plas Allegros - Garden ornaments? | eBay
Do i spot a Trabant in the background??
Could be right there racall!
More garden than ornaments.
yes to the trabant...
Don't tell Tiff. About the Trabbie he has 1 already.
are you allowed to use colourful language on eBay?
I had one of these, I used to call it the 'swamp master' more leaks than MI5.The interior was mouldy and it had a large family of midges living in it, I used to leave the keys in it in a vain hope some sad sack would nick it. I advertised it in the local rag. Free to anyone that wanted it, I managed to get rid of it just before the health and safety noticed my add.
+£200 to get them out of there!!
I,m led to belive the last of the trabbies had VW Polo running gear.
Well this sold for £1600 so theres hope there.
escort mk 1 mexico,+v5 | eBay
The value in that isn't the car it's the v5, a very cunning way to sell the documents of a car for ringing, noway was that a daytona yellow motor.
The V5 says colour: White.....
How can you tell?
A yellow Mexico in good condition would make strong money so the logbook has value. The Allegros on the other hand...
I have to confess to owning three allegro's in my deep and distant past,the last one was a VDP auto,there,I've confessed my sins !!.
I heard someone say that Allegros came in two varieties:
- The sort that fell to pieces rapidly
- The sort that went on forever with a constant succession of niggling but usually minor problems.
If you had one of the latter you could have done a lot worse. And let's face it, 1970's Vivas, Escorts, Fiats, Japcrap etc. were prone to either rubbish reliability, rubbish build quality or both.
The Allegro is an under-rated car and in many ways more advanced and innovative than the competition.
I didn't have any issues with any of them other than routine maintenance,they were certainly better than the Marina that I had before them.
You are clearly a glutton for punishment !
on Escorts, here's the other side of the coin!!
Lawton Brook Ltd.
Possibly a tad optimistic, but it doesn't usually stop them
At £49K it will definitely be a "once in a lifetime" purchase but certainly won't "continue to appreciate in value" if someone was daft enough to spend that sort of money on it !
