The only thing that would give me pause is the number of classic cars that are suddenly appearing recently that have been off the road for a number of years, now that they are MOT exempt.

I am not saying this is the case here, but my first question would be, if I take this to an MOT station for voluntary inspection, would it pass?

This car has also been offered for sale on the FB page where, IIRC, the seller has stated that it will be sold with a fresh test, despite being exempt.

I'm pretty sure i've seen this car "in the tin", If it's the one i'm thinking of, I don't think any potential buyer will find much to take issue with!

I stopped reading after I saw this line...

'All the electrics seem good so it isn’t going to take much to get back on the road, especially with the car being MOT exempt......'
