At least it's got pepperpots, that's a great start to the resto! :D
The seller is in Auchtermuchty, home of The Proclaimers.

Mine are wrapped up and stacked in the garage. If they didn't have tyres on they would be in the spare bedroom :D

Just seen it plastered over one of the facebook sites, looks like some mug has fallen for it. Wonder how long before it's relisted?

Yes, that only leaves another £2,955.00 worth of parts to take off to break even.

If you could bottle the genuine 1984 air in the tyres Martin that would be another £20 on the Bay of Thieves perhaps :D :D :D

People see a once desirable old Ford & think its worth lots :banghead: :banghead:

It is a tad overvalued to say the least, not enough of it would seem to be a worthwhile breaker unless it was pretty much free & too much to restore economically, apart from headlining & sunroof handle, the V5 is probably the most valuable bit for the unscrupulous types ….. sad really :(
