Looks lovely - discreet colour scheme too. Apart from, of course, the oh-so-necessary greeny-grey crushed velvet!!! :shock: :shock: :D

Well if someone picks that up for £4000 to £5,000 even with 16.5% buyers premium that looks like an absolute bargain. isn't that a £10k car ?

Not sure - the engine bay looks a bit "patinated" and it's not clear what spec. it is - 501,502 or 503.

It may have passed an MOT, but I suspect it needs more than just regular servicing to make it worth more than the estimates.
