That R18 is remarkable, he was selling it on Facebook for £1600 complete with the parts needed too which I thought was a massive bargain, it be interesting to see what it makes in the auction though especially in these troubled times.

That beauty has been for sale forever. I have been stalking it, and found something on a Triumph forum from about 2009 about it having belonged to something called the Cresswell Collection about five to ten years earlier. Anyone recognise that name?  A bringatrailer post in 2014 noted it on sale in Surrey for 3.5k, in much the same state it's in today and linked to an ad that said  "Rio is complete and sold as a restoration project . The condition is very poor and will require  major work. Engine does not run head was removed many years ago and has be just placed back on the block . Although the paint and laquer is poor the alloy body is in fair condition. However the steel underbody is very rotten and will need major panel replacement to the floor pan and sills etc. Interior is all there but in poor condition . The whole car will need a complete rebuild.  Also the car has a full history file even down to petrol receipts and details of all its previous owners."

Now that my Bitter is back on the road, I could do with a more mainstream project like this......

Can you recall what parts it needed?  Details still to follow on the ACA listing. 

If it's a runner and stays sensible I'll have to bid.  Opportunities like this don't come along that often.

If it does go ahead with online bidding, I might have a go at this,

Get cheap enough and it would keep me busy for a period of lockdown, detailing it to within an inch of its life, then if we all survive , go to a couple of shows and double my money . WCPGW?

A Diplomat with velour seats! That looks fantastic.

I’m not sure if that’s the original interior, they look like Senator seats to me, I dug out a Carlton brochure earlier and even though it was too old to have Diplomats in it, the blue with grey looks wrong to me . 
Just call me Shitelock! 
I was looking for a picture of a Diplomat with velour to see what they look like and it would be all blue and basically the same as a CDX not Senator. Whilst looking I found this picture showing it with grey leather.

Could this be the first ever AS bidding war?  That could be awkward... :lol:

 

Edit:  No it wouldn't be the first.  I was (unknowingly) bidding against Pogweasel (RIP) for my Renault 6 on eBay.

I won't if you're dead set on it, so fill yer boots wuv.

Also, I've been thinking about it and my lack of space means I'd have to sell the 11 to make way, which I don't want to do really.

We have made the decision to postpone our April classic until June 13th. Many of the cars are already on site and, having spoken with our vendors, we are making these cars available on a "buy now" basis and will update our website accordingly. These cars will be available for viewing, by appointment, during the week commencing Monday March 30th.

I assume they'll be deleting the sentence about viewing arrangements, and even a June sale seems optimistic (unless they do online only).

I hope things will be back to something a bit closer to normality by mid-June, but agree that having hundreds of people crowded together in a shed might still not be a great idea by then.  Unless they discover that carbon monoxide kills Coronavirus obvs.
