Sold today at Morris Leslie auctions at Errol airfield, Perthshire

https://www.the-saleroom.com/en-gb/auct ... aa00f95bc9

Guide price £7-10000. Last MOT May 2009. No current MOT despite them saying it has. Something a bit strange?

Sold for £6500 :shock:

That seems a decent auction price for the car. I recognise the interior retrim - I’m sure an Irish guy on here posted pictures of the work he had done a few years ago.

Edited to say:

A quick search reveals it was owned by zaria123 who bought it 10 years ago and seems to have lavished care and money on it. viewtopic.php?t=14146&f=39#p185090 . He posted lots of pictures but they were on photobucket so are now defunct.

Each to his or her own, I suppose ~ but I'd find it hard to live with a dog turd brown interior

Well remembered John

I also don't think dog turd brown suits Pacific blue but they are very we.l done. Would like nicer in an old Rover 2000 or a Jag though

Comfy looking seats, mind.

Just read Zaria's comments and the design was loosely based on a Jag XK8. I thought the design looked vaguely familiar. Very well done though but not for me. Might suit someone with a cardigan, pipe and slippers

I like his black and orange in the orange fiesta thing

Some lovely workmanship depicted on www.transcal.co.uk Looks like DC has had some work done in the past
