You did a nice job in the description and your BIN seems realistic, so hopefully you should not have a problem selling.
I have the same thing in a 66 vintage and I know my wife loves (ok maybe that's a little strong....) it and would not want it gone, so I can sympathize with the sad day motto.
Good luck with the sale.

I thought it was yours when i saw the ebay ad, but thought there no way he'd sell it. No more 404's then?

There might be another one in a shed. Maybe sat on 12.5r20's.

Trying to make space thought, have to start building a large tin box for the back of the u1300 at some point.

I'll put something up tomorrow when it's light. The bumper caught the door and the tyre the rear wing.

There's a chip of paint missing from the front bumper. You know that blind spot where the fuel tank is in the mirror? Yeah that car sized one?

First time I've written off my own car while it was locked and the keys inside.

Ouch! thats real bad luck.

Didn't realise they only made 86 Doka's I wonder how many are in the UK? Mines a factory doka too.

Good luck with the sale, hope you don't get too many time wasters!
