I'm not sure what you would be buying, is it the first couple of photo's or as I suspect that is what it arrived as, now it's just a pile of pieces, I've asked what is on the V5C but so far no response
Well 7 watchers, you, me & Danny that nearly 50% of them, he says there's no engine nor seats, I think the winner will get whats in images 3 & 4 or that's what I'm expecting to collect ;D ;D
No seriously if I can get it really cheap I am considering it as the basis of a MGF buggy, cut off the back fit subframe, been there done that. Cut off the front including bulkhead, cut the header rail out, spring the sides out to be parallel to mate up with the front subframe. Not sure how much clearance that will give for steering lock. Even better if it is registered, although I doubt it is, although it does have an internal fuel tank & then jerrycan panniers.
As yet he hasn't sold it, he wasn't prepared to let if sell for 99p he was also under the impression to get it on the road all he had to do was apply to DVLA for a vin number, then get an MOT. What you see in pictures 3 & 4 is what you get, which really isn't a lot. It's not registered, no engine/gearbox, no seats, no wheels, no subframe, no hubs. You're getting a frame, with a few bits, I think it's okay if you already have one, space to store as a spare if you crash or yours sucumes to rust. But I doubt we can agree on a price, I don't know what he paid, but it's going to be a lot less than what it's worth to me, after all I'd be getting rid of most of it.
