I hate these wanky "pickup conversions" they all look shit and just guarantee that the current owner will be the last before the bridge.

Pretty sure 1250 would get you a normal 407 coupe, never mind one with the boot replaced with plywood that doesn't even run ffs.

Look how waterproof it isn't, just imagine how bad the interior smells with all the rainwater soaked into it.

It is hard to see where £3k went on that isn't it? If they'd done it themselves it would have cost the price of a bit of plywood. Then you could almost understand it but to pay somebody else just makes no sense. And if he really thought it was that good wouldn't the money be better spent making it work again?

Part worn brake pads anyone?

"Only covered 800 miles and are literally brand new" says the seller, who must not know the meaning of the word literally.

EuroCarParts (only place I could be bothered checking) will sell you a brand new set for a whole FIVE POUNDS more

Alanis Morissette didn't understand the meaning of ironic but she still made a song about it which sold in the millions.

This is an unrepeatable chance to buy a piece of Bavarian motoring history.

However it does have many parts (glass, doors, fuel tank, bumpers, bootlid etc - no bonnet)

A wheel, a cracked windscreen, a rusted fuel tank, a battery from the 80's, and some rubbery thing

Looks like quite a few pieces, actually. Even better* value.

 

I especially like:

Thanks for that, I'm sure someone will be keeping an eye out for F461LJH miraculously returning to the road in a remarkably short space of time.
