Looks like Claire Watkins old car, she's not that long sold it, looks like someone going for a quick profit!

No, it's a different car. This one has been on the Facebook page quite a lot and is being auctioned by the guy that has re-built it. It looks very nice and I am sure it will fetch a lot more than the guide price.

The chap that bought Claire's car has had problems with the engine and is re-fitting another one in it at the moment.

Did anyone catch the the price this sprint sold for?
I'm interested in buying a dolomite sprint in tidy useable condition and was wondering what kind of money I would need to part with.
Cheers for any info
Dan.

That was an auction a year ago in 2019 !

https://swva.co.uk/auction-category/25t ... ount=23419

£9400 + buyers premium.

A more recent auction had another which sold for £8600 + premium.

https://swva.co.uk/auction-category/25t ... ount=23419

Sprints have gone up a lot recently, I would say for a "tidy useable one" you have got to be looking at £8k upwards - watch out for ones that are as rusty as hell but have had a quick respray to tart them up.

Look at some of the resto threads on here - especially ones by James467

This one shows up a lot of the vulnerable areas on Dolomites so you know where to look when going shopping for one.
