2.8 (apparently) for resto...

Post by Christoph2.8i » Mon Oct 07, 2019 8:16 pm

Anyone noticed this 2.8 for restoring on eBay?

Is it me or does this looks like a 2.8 in every way apart from the lack of reinforced strut tops? Could be a re shell?

Pretty sure all V6 models has them

Date tested 27 June 2007 @ 10,560 miles.

Assuming that was 100560 miles, and currently has stated mileage of 89387, either it has gone back or had clock change :?

There are a couple of sets of clocks on the floor. That bonnet`s properly rotten, yet there don`t seem to be any cracks in the dash.

I was thinking the same thing about the clocks - plenty of them on the floor, I'd be interested to see if one of them is from a 4cyl car and it's just been changed as part of a re-shell.....?

Nowhere near "unmolested", as the seller claims it is. Ebay sellers! :roll:

Quite surprisingly he does seem to be a proper business at least, as in having premises
