That is a nice early car and good colour. I assume it's a J reg being 1971.

THat`s exactly the same as my brothers first car, same colour, everything, also on a J plate. Like seeing a ghost! That must be quite a reasonable price all things considered?

If only I had the space!
How do you go on about viewing these cars? I mean, you can`t really class it as essential travel, it`s not to go to work in?

Many dealers are just selling off the web and usually delivering the cars to the customer.

Copied this from a Ford Dealer I follow on Facebook;
"Our latest Mustang Bullitt was sold today, this one will be another heading for Staffordshire, our third to the county and yet another distant sale, the first time the client will see the car when we deliver it free of charge.
If your thinking of selling a Mustang, do contact us as we are very short of inventory, after a very, very busy period".

Just goes to show how people are prepared to spend well over £30k on a car being sold by certain dealers reputation and pictures alone!

I Know, it`s becoming the norm, people use Cazoo etc to buy a car just as they would a fridge from Currys. Plus, they don`t rot like they used to so whereas my instinct would be to check wheelarches, sills, A posts etc - that`s no longer necessary. Having said that I did buy the Capri unseen...
(Interestingly we used to have a Honda dealership on Chester Rd, that has now gone to be replaced by.... Cazoo! (Their stock arrives on BCA transporters - British Car Auctions, which operate `We Buy Any Car. I did enter the Capri once and they offered £50. And a handling charge of £49.99)`

:agree: Short of accident damage that any reputable dealer should declare anyway, there isnt much reason to drive 100s of miles to view a car now. Warranty will cover any issues as it always has done and the quality of pictures and videos now it's as good as being there.

I bought my Mustang this way and have had a great experience, simply asking the right questions re issues I wanted sorted before and after delivery.

With social media there is too much to risk for dealers to be anything less than 100% honest now.

Sadly many older cars are treated as scrap money. Times have moved on and it's time these companies caught up!
