I know the seller, he lives across the road from me and used to be one of my students years ago when I was teaching car mechanics.

Didn't know he'd got that though but he is a Ford collector.

I wouldn't pay anything near that for it, even for my 3.0S.

Got a perfectly good Halfords down the road that sells shelves full of Nick's favorite spray paint ( in black) so that will do on mine!

If it was under the bed it might have spring marks hitting it if you had any young people ( over 18 ) stay ?

Isn't it amazing that NOS stuff is still coming up for sale, it must be at least 20 years since items like this could be ordered from Ford.
I wonder if it had been bought with the intention of using it on a resto project that never happened.

Hi, This sold for £372 in the end. Was watching the last 2mins of the auction. It was at £310 with 3 bidders then right on 'time up' it leapt up to £372 with that fourth bid.
