Looks fairly tidy, but obviously being stood for so long will not have done it any favours.

The ten years stood inside will have done it no good, but it's the next five years stood outside that will have ruined it!!

Strangely Cazana has the last MOT expiry as 1983! But since it appears to have been taxed in 2002 it seems reasonable to assume that's when it was last on the road.

Price? As usual, shell condition is everything so hope any bidders do their due diligence.... :corn:

Not in my barn Mal... :D Tough call this one, rear wheel arch is definitely shot and pictures seem to concentrate on interior and non-working engine (by seller's own admission) rather than underside of body.

I knew it was not one of yours Peter :wink:

It will be interesting to see what it makes though.

So one bid of £4.500 and it sold? Or did it? Let's see if it surfaces somewhere... :corn:

Can't understand why you would leave a car outside to rot for three years and then suddenly think it's worth over 5 grand??

It looks like it didn't sell the first time, maybe the first bidder didn't pay up or took one look at the car and ran away !
Although I have no idea why it's now £ 1000 more expensive !
Still, it could make a nice project for someone.

All I can say is I'm glad I still have my red one (with MOT!) as I nearly sold it for £4k just a few months ago...
