Probably not worth £4750, but it is rather splendid:

This is a posh HLS, yet it has a single carb. My A-plate Ambassador was bottom of the range but twin carb.
BL really were all over the place sometimes.

Tempted to take a gamble on this Bongo at Copart. Category S due to what appears to be minor front end damage. Currently at £300 with 45 minutes to go.

I assume you have factored in Copart's somewhat extortionate fees.  I've bought a few cars from them but you do need to look at the total price rather than the hammer price (you probably know this already!).

Haven't bought from there for a few years but their fees were steep even back then! Thanks for the heads up though, I will look into it. 👍

Oh that's a real shame. Imported from Switzerland in the 90s and with the same owner ever since. Here it is spotted a few months ago at its North London home (not by me)

If it's going to be broken there are lots of bits I'd like for mine (wheels, bumpers) but it does seem that once something goes on Copart is just disappears forever

I've noticed that. Weird. You'd think they were being bought from Copart to repair or break, but you rarely seem to see any sign of them again.

 

I guess the parts gradually find their way back out into the wild from breakers or maybe some go to specialists/restorers who strip them for parts that go into a warehouse waiting for the right car.

my Saab 9-5 was sold though there 2 years ago and just disappeared. Its shown as untaxed on DVLA , and last V5 issue date was when I moved house. Its not shown as scrapped or exported when Carbaba used to show that stuff for free.  A real mystery

This is interesting if the reserve is sensible. It has the equivalent of one years mileage. Possibly the closest to a new Montego available.

My bet's on the reserve being three bags or above.

"The car requires some engine repairs but still functions as normal.

 
The repairs required are to the Cylinder head casket "
 
Maybe it's coffin under acceleration when undertaking

That will be quite an undertaking...it's  quite a grave problem you may find the gasket has been cremated.
