That's very very strong money for what is, for all intentents and purposes, a restoration case, regardless of the engine spec. Get it for the right money and sort out body and paint and a fettle through the handling department, keeping it standard, and it will hold it's money well one day. Rare car.

Bidding was around a 1000 when it was pulled.

Unfortunately, it was not pulled, the bidding ended at 1000 with the reserve not met.

A re spray is pretty much all this needs to make a cracking car. To call it a restoration is a bit of an insult to the amount of work that has been done to all that is left to do.

I am unable to finish as my wife is expecting and i cannot justify the car.

was hoping for near the 2000 mark, which with all old cars, nowhere near covers original cost of car and parts.

As I say, i cannot afford to keep now, any sensible offer will be considered.

the main problem that you are facing is that even after a respray (1000+) the car still isnt going to be worth much more than what your asking

although it looks like a good project i think you will struggle to get the asking price sadly ,

good luck with the sale though, the engine itself im sure will sell the car!

No insult from me Hillybilly, but if a total, glass out re-spray, and the A pillars, is not classed as restoration work then I don't know what is. You have a rare car there, that's for sure. In good nick ( paint wise) I reckon on the right day you'd see 2500 maybe 3000 if you doing well. The engine is the heart of the car in this case.

sorry booty,I didn't mean to come across so ar$3y.

Just a bit upset about having to sell up. its been my daily driver since march and I love it, its just my situation has changed and it has to go.

I know the price seems over the odds but its just a guide, I'd rather she went to an enthusiast for less obviously, so no sensible offer would be refused.

No issue here Sir. What is the engine like, or I should say, is it much different from a standard KV ( 136bhp) lump performance wise?

I've had a bit of experience with the RE2500's and (as discussed on the Isle of Man) a good, well sorted, well maintained (and these are critical) RE2500 is a strong, durable and enthusiastic engine.... These are all caveats, the engine also has many failings in longevity.
