After owning it for some years I have decided to sell EJM 2V.

It is by no means a showroom car but a very usable 1850 auto in Pageant blue.

Over the years I have done various things including 5 new tyres, new radiator, alternator, sub frame bushes, water pump plus a lot more.

I have changed 2 doors and the boot lid and all doors, boot lid, bonnet and engine bay have been painted by Yorkshire Triumphs.

There are a few minor dings and dents, the rear wheel arches need tidying along with the lower front. The interior also needs sprucing up but it got some fairly complimentary comments at last years TDCIR. It got there at 70 along the motorway and when we got stuck on the M1 the auto proved priceless.

It now has a full years MOT with no advisories. The number plate has been valued at £1600.00 to £2000.00 but I'm not sure how easy it would be to sell.

If you are interested send me a PM and we can arrange to talk further. I'm looking for £2500.00

Looks tidy enough for a decent daily driver and I wish you luck with the sale!

On the number plate front, I have some experience here, having sold several plates over the years.

The last one I sold (in 2017) was 123 RPC, which was valued by Regtransfers, a nationally known and respected company, at £3000. After nearly 2 years with no bites at all, I let it go for £1500 and considered myself lucky to get that, my own personal estimate was £1250! J2 SCG made £425 in 2016.

In general, I think the market in cherished numbers is falling, it's really just a bit of vanity for folk who can afford it. And there are currently fewer and fewer of THOSE around!
