Apple Carplay is exactly the modification the classic RR enthusiast is looking for in a restoration.

Ah, but you see, even the mere mention of MK1 ESCORT in the title instantly boosts the value of literally anything.


However, they made the rookie error of not including "NOT RS2000 MEXICO RETRO L@@K". If they'd done that, they'd have easily got a ton for it.

In this months Classic Cars magazine.

I’ve no idea how you’d go about valuing something like this but no matter how hard I try, I see this as £5-6k max.

I've always had the suspicion that the guy who designed the front of this had issues. Either he had found his boss in bed with his wife, been passed over for promotion or maybe was really, really hung over and allowed his five year old to draw the front.  It just looks like a cartoon car who is so so sad.

...the brochure interestingly is stamped by another Peugeot dealer in the west midlands. The order form shows no discount on the sale price so perhaps Solihull Motor Co failed to live up to expectation hence the order was placed elsewhere? Judging by both the condition of the car, the documentation and the hand written notes he was certainly a stickler for detail...

The advert wanks on tediously in similar vein for ages.

Price:

From the advertising text- The interior is a fabulous place to reside

Is the same sort of 309 GTi as the one I had ? (purchased back in the day for 150 quid). My abiding memory of 'residing' in the interior of that was the seats used to get damp due to a leaky sunroof. It was a good fun car to drive but I would struggle to describe the interior as fabulous.

Also  I know Wilko pointed this out, and the main point of this thread is overpriced cars on the web but Jeesus 21 grand for a 5 door!

I watched a classic auction recently where one of those with similar miles and in similar nick (with bonus awesome alloys) sold for... £1000

Not sure if this is the right thread but here's my collection of premium, future-classic, unmolested, 'only going up in value', wanky carandclassic ads

 

£5000 E39 isn't for the faint hearted! So don't fucking call him if you have a faint heart.

Already expensive versions of cars are "only going up". Remember old=classic

Astra = classic. This one stands out because of its brilliant silver and contrasting black cloth

I would like another Riley 4/72. 

For my £9k I’d want no tippex on my tyres for a start.

Amongst the usual bullshit  the ad informs “twin carburettors giving better performance”  Ok, every little helps.

Oh.

What else have they missed out? Thermostat-housing nuts for a start. A bit of garden hose for the breather?

And that is a horrid colour combination:  school-lavatory over prison-corridor green.

My pension lump-sum is safe for now.

Feel the love and effort put into this ad for a £2500 Xanita

Looks in great* nick

I know where that Xantia is. It was a really nice car but I think it was hit while parked outside his house. Its been under a cover for a while, I think at that price it will be there for a long time yet!

£450 for a dashboard in not particularly good condition.

I've just got my pocket calculator out and extrapolated that, with parts at these prices, my Sceptre is now worth approximately £3.8million - which is a bit of a result tbh.

Supplied new on the 27th September 1982 to a Dr Edwin Mansell before being sold to long-term owner two years later, Mr Roger Little. Mr Little purchased the car from Brian Stevens Cars in Enfield, specialists in one owner low mileage cars for £5,795. Being the conscientious type, he opted for the Used Vehicle warranty for peace of mind and the car has remained continually garaged and used sparingly with old MOT certificates validating the low 41,135 miles. Such was his fondness and devotion for this car that a second daily vehicle was purchased so his pride and joy 244 could remain carefully stored with wheels off the ground in the heated garage! In 2019 Mr Little made the difficult decision to sell his pride and joy and KGF Classic Cars were delighted to find the next appreciative owner, Mr David land Levitt, an avid Volvo 200 Series enthusiast who has owned many examples, both in the UK and while living in the USA. Wanting to preserve the car in prime condition, Mr Lang Levitt paid £250+VAT per month to have the car garaged in an underground car park near his home in Central London and he even purchased a tailor made and very expensive cover which he has kindly gifted to stay with the car. A major service was also carried out under his ownership. A change in employment role now requires Mr Lang Levitt to travel extensively and he wishes not to use the car as an everyday vehicle

You did better than me, I gave up at 'Passengers can enjoy one of 14 air outlets to produce efficient distribution of hot or cold air....' :-) 

They do get some amazing stuff but the descriptions are hard work

I prefer this advert for a 245...
