Something you don't see everyday.


How much?! Or am I missing something?

I think, from the bumpf, that may be for a built car using the shell. Maybe.

I'm not so sure. They will discuss reshelling a car into this treated shell. A likely part of that discussion is a rather large number!

They have priced it as if it's a new shell, it's possibly as good as new but what if you don't want it to be red?

As with most of the last C900's it will more than likely have corrosion issues.

I can see a few of the usual areas such as bonnet sides, arches and filler flap. But the underside is where they usually go, driveshaft tunnels and rear shock mounting points.

MoT history confirms its had corrosion issues in the past, hopefully its been repaired to a good standard.

If it was 12K for a rebuilt complete car then I would be buying 10 of them.

What you see has probably had in excess of 15K spent on it to get it where it currently is.

Initial purchase cost of a RUST FREE shell.
2K to fully strip the shell
4K for transportation and acid dip and E coat
2K for the Rhino/speedliner type of underseal
6K for the quality repaint

Unless you have either done this or had this type of work carried out then you really do not understand the costs / time incured.

There are ways of cutting costs

Initial purchase of the usual rusty shell
Pay some numpty to strip the car only to find that lots of tiny bits that should have been removed are left attached
Dont have it acid dipped
Get mot type welding done to the car
Underseal the car with the usual non effective carp from a tin from Halfords
Get matey round the corner to carry out the usual poo repaint most people seem to be happy with

You certainly don't end up with anything like the shell on ebay, but probably more like the one most people are happy to pay for.

:shock: I have been educated.
I think I was taking the price of a new car and thinking that the shell would be a smallish part of the cost of it. But if you are buying/making thousands it probably is.

Another silly seller that hides the number plate. Sent him a private message on ebay to ask for the number plate so as to check the MOT history before I bid and the reply was he could not give it to me because of privacy. :wall: Won't be bidding then. :loco:

It does annoy me, there is no reason to try and protect 'privacy' on a car worth less than a grand. What do they think is going to happen? It is clearly an attempt to hide MOT details, I can't think of another legitimate reason.

I have similarly requested the reg of a couple of cars recently in similar circumstances and it has been supplied to me.

I think you're wise to just avoid it entirely.
