Just for a laugh,I went to look at an '82 today.I had seen it in a local specialist showroom at night and decided to take a closer look at it out in the open.It is being sold on behalf of a family estate,the owner having died a couple of weeks ago.
I think I know what killed him! There was a whole folder full of receipts going back to it's original delivery and just looking at that gave me the shivers.Over the past year alone,the guy had spent over Ã‚Â£12k ($21k) mostly on interior work and a bit of welding but the thing still looked like a piece of shit.The only thing going for it was that the engine sounded crisp and responsive,but I didn't even bother taking it for a drive.
Asking price Ã‚Â£16k ($28k)-if anyone pays even half that they would need their bumps feeling.
