Looks rather rough but nonetheless attracting bidding.

I guess it's probably worth that (875) for the engine and gearbox and whatever is usable after that is a bonus?

Originally russet brown

It's climbed to a fair old amount but even at that £1227 you would still make a fair bit of money as just parts. What amuses me is that the cheapskate purchaser is even using the Copart pictures!

We don’t know what it finished at on Copart, but it was at £875 so I’d say the current seller has had a fair bit of effort for £350 when you consider costs of collecting it. I paid £120 for that white car that had been in the hedge for 30 years and managed to salvage very little from it...a seized engine and sheared off spark plugs sitting on a rotten subframe. I can’t see that much on this one either...

Naw, that's a proper Sprint Dash so must be worth at least twice as much as an 1850 one! :twisted:

The scary thing is, that with the new MOT exemption someone could get that running & drive it on the road!!!

He would have over £100 in fees to pay on the Copart sale plus of course his transport costs and Ebay costs so at the current price he isn't making much money.
