    Hardly a valid comparison, that one says "THIS CAR NEEDS A FULL RESTORATION ...PLEASE NOTE YOU WOULD HAVE TO SPEND A LOT OF MONEY ON CAR NEEDS A FULL REBILD LOTS OF WELDING ETC"

    If the seller in this case is to be believed, he's spent £43K restoring his so far.

    I assume his reference to £100K would be after it's been brought to an as-new standard.

    But I do find his refusal to allow viewings a little strange.

    it doesnt look like its in "deep storage". looks like a farmyard barn to me. plus one of the photos shows it on grass so its been moved outside easy enough.

    i suspect its a rotter and he doesnt want it to be under too much scruitiny?

    No one would spend £25k on a car that they were not allowed to view - especially one needing considerable work.

    I think it's equally likely he's paranoid about dubious types using a viewing to scope out whats worth pinching on a return visit. The listing is from **** smear in surrey, the spiritual home of the paranoid retired golfist.

    It'll take a lot better photos than that to shift the car any price, let alone £25k. I also doubt very much it would be worth £100k when finished.

    He's spent £43k on the car including £10k on paintwork, and can't be bothered to put a dust sheet over it?

    If you look further down his history, he's already flogged the Hard Top seperately. Nice.

    Agree 100%. What a strange way to treat paint that he professes to have had redone three times to meet his high standards.

    I think the only consistent thing about the advert is the thread of grade-one bulls**t that runs through it.
