Yellow SE Going To Auction......

Postby simonbuk » Thu 18.01.2018, 23:50

Anybody know of a yellow SE going to auction next week ?

https://www.classiccarsforsale.co.uk/lotus/elan/251550

The picture is a library picture so no good, can't see the reg plate anyway. Can anybody work it out from the chassis number ?

Bit worried its just been waxoiled underneath.......

Here is a better link to the lot at ACA.

There is a good range of cars in this classic car auction including a 2016 Ford Mustang (!), a Sinclair C5.

Yes that's better, but 'duplicate service book stamped at 1994' -wonder what that means ?

What's with the rear lights ? Look different ?

It probably means they lost the original and bought a duplicate service book that was stamped in 1994 with the correct service details :poke:

intriguing.
How does one get all the original stamps in the book if lost?

This would only really be possible if 1 garaged supplied PDI'd and serviced the car from new.
Or a lot of effort was put into sending the book back to all the garages that had serviced it and only then i guess that would be possible with all the paperwork in exemplory order to show where and when this had been done ( and hoping that all the garages are still trading under the same name )

If any of the above is the case then why not show this service book as a sales point ?

Could be possible. Car was registered in 1992. Possibly the original owner lost/misplaced the original logbook c1994. Applied to Hethel or via his dealership for a replacement log book then got it stamped up retrospectively as they would have had all the service details (possibly only 2 or 3 anyway ?) on their Amstrad

PS are you sure Geoff's address is correct Clemo ? I thought it was

Did anyone get the correct reg? I destroyed a yellow '92 SE in '94 and was later contacted by someone who had bought the salvage and was trying to recreate the service history - the handbook having gone to the insurance company and I guess not sold on. J152 VJB.

It was written off as I broke (among other things) front clam, rear clam, front suspension, rear suspension, radiator, oil cooler, at least one rear light unit, bent one chassis on a tree (and then the opposite bank) near Deepcut in Surrey. (See avatar to the left)

I was contacted out of the blue and was so taken aback that the car was going back on the road - with a recreated service history - I think I was not very helpful to the gentleman.

first '92 SE Norfolk Mustard - written off (oops) :smt053
then '92 SE Calypso Red - P/X'd for S1 Elise :smt086, then Elise for Caterham 7 :smt045
now '94 S2 Pacific Blue - :smt042

Dont think its the same car as yours mate, despite the private plate. Yours was registered 23/04/92. The one at auction on 06/02/92. Yours is now a Cat N, but interestingly doesn't show up when you try and look up MOT history.
