On the Club stand at the NEC in 2017, a good one.

Yes for common or lower value everyday classics. Not for best of the best investor/collector cars. Still brave with no reserve :sweat:

It looks a nice enough car, but the mileage is a bit weird. Looking at the mot history, there is a spell of about 7 years when the mileage was the same. I know there is a potential issue with the cog that changes the mileage on the earlier cars, which you can now repair, but with only a limited service history very hard to see how many miles it has done. To myself mileage is not a factor as you should always buy on condition etc, but worth asking the question as unlikely that it did no miles over that time, but could have done 50k plus.

Probably a record price for an Ebay "auction" car.I have seen it in person,and it is lovely.Shame the miles cannot be verified more accurately.If it can, and after some work(I recall that the paint was bit edgy here & there) which will likely cost 2k after everything,expect to see a dealer retailing at high teens.
