This has been knocking around for a while. I think it was up for 10 before. Could be wrong.

1984 Austin Maestro 1300 1275 A+ Retro Stanced Lowered Classic

Oh dear.

Untitled.thumb.jpg.2c8bff4ea3578c50956b47e439cf6e50.jpg

"For Sale, the most famous Maestro on Facebook!!! 

1984 1275 A+ Maestro. 

Last owner since 1986, always garaged and pumped with waxoyl. 

Never Welded, do ideal if you want to fully restore it to concourse spec

Revolution 4 spokes, 5mm+ on the tyres which were new last year.  Lowered on coilovers. 

Raised engine by 30mm so the sump clears the floor.   Reinforced sump. 

Awesome fun car to drive, really pisses off the purists, totally different to anything else of the road, perfect classic to use as a daily. 

The reason for sale is to fund a new race car. 

I've still got the bumpers, standard suspension and wheels so you can  return it to stock."  Interior looks original too, so there may still be hope for it!

Classified ad price: £3,250 😆

I don't mind modification as much as I used to, but when you're saying that pissing off purists is a selling point I am afraid we have some work to do before we can be friends

I’ve never driven it but have had a very scary ride in it - thankfully he knows the single track roads around his place well. There are a couple of cars like this that he lets go to people that he trusts will return them to him when they’re done with them. Hence the prices - just treat them as a deposit! His barns are now full of interesting cars - he’s well into Maseratis as well now, and has a proper nice Bitter SC. His connections with JDHT allow him to ‘borrow’ the XJ40 coupe and X300 convertible (Audi A4 hood apparently). I think he has an Enzo Ferrari thing going on where you have to be invited to buy certain cars despite being on general sale, and probably kneel down to sign the paperwork. That doubtlessly annoys a few people outside ‘the inner circle’ but to be honest he just worships the cars and is a genuinely nice generous bloke who lives and breathes for cars.

I was high bidder but didn't make reserve. Shame, I've always wanted one

Seems a shame to keep cutting up Austin Sevens from almost 100 years ago just to make these speedster things.

I’m sure with some ingenuity and a good eye for proportion, you could build one from scratch?

Already gone which isn't surprising as someone got an incredible deal. Throw a used gearbox in there and you double your money within a weekend.

This has been for sale for YEARS, at the same price, does anyone know anything about it? I am wondering given that they haven't been able to shift it if they will accept a lower cash offer, but a contact of mine has warned me that this place has a dodgy reputation...
