asides from observing the (unusual) MOT entry, any impressions of this one? I dropped the seller (zero-feedback) a message of interest and no reply as yet.
Cheers :park:

I am on the lookout too, a bit pricey for a car that has not had an MOT for 5 years though.
If I was selling I would put it through an MOT so a prospective buyer would have an idea of it’s condition.

you may be right there, the (zero-feedback) seller never got back to me when I asked to arrange a viewing, which is a bit strange - "what's to hide ?". Well I'm not buying blind ever again - I got tucked up like that before...once bitten...

I'm always a bit bemused by quite expensive cars that have no MOT. You can get them done for £30 in many places. Even if it doesn't pass it gives prospective owners an idea of what needs doing. I can understand it if it's a half done abandoned project and the owner just wants rid, but always a bit of an alarm bell I think if an otherwise decent £5k car has no MOT.
