Pick one, fucking dipshit.

It also looks like shit. Crap paint, bent bumpers, soft rear arches, bootlid doesn't fit. Also, is that how the door cards were fitted at the factory? Surely not!

Door cards, nailed on by Stevie Wonder ūüôĄ

Heh, I've got that in my watch list.¬† Not sure where I'd keep it if I bought it, but it would be an amusing thing to bomb around in in the summer, and I'm sure the Reliable Honda Engine‚ĄĘ wouldn't take too much to coax back to life.

IIRC those Z coupes used to fly, and they had a full body on. I think that could be scary stuff if running right.

Yes I have complained to Ebay about these auctions-within-auctions which are against Ebay 'rules'?

Go look at the vendors auction 'conditions'.

That's been for sale for a while now.  I occasionally have impure thoughts about it, especially given that it's just up the road from me.

I'm assuming the person who was responsible for this is the same person who owned that orange Aston a few pages back...

This looks nice.  Shame it's on a Q plate - not sure how easy it is to get rid of such things nowadays.

Ooh thats a fun one

lets have a breakdown of things shall we! 

TEU199C is an age related plate from the year 2001 registered to a White 1596cc Gazelle with no recorded engine number 

this registration mark was Voided by the DVLA at some point, but still very much alive in their records https://www.freecarcheck.co.uk/free/VEVVMTk5Qw-MTY0NDY3MjQ5Nw/

Q337RFB is a Q plate issued to a Black 1725cc Gazelle registered in December 1997, registered on its engine number, or its chassis number has also been incorrectly inputted into the engine number field

(I dont know enough about singers to tell what is a Chassis number and what is an engine number) https://www.freecarcheck.co.uk/free/UTMzN1JGQg-MTY0NDY3MzA3Ng/

so its no surprise that the DVLA Voided TEU199C as the details just dont match up, (although I dont know what chassis number TEU199C has on its record as that costs actually credit to find out!)

this is why its always important to get your details squeaky clean correct on your V62 or the DVLA will ruin your day and void whatever registration mark your trying to get the V5c for!

 

I have a sneaky suspicion someone just slapped the plates from TEU199C onto it, to get it exported to Ireland or something such (as the Q plate was issued a good a few years before it looks like it was exported to Ireland)

EDIT: as an aside I did find https://www.flickr.com/photos/128691640@N04/48893710421

which lists its chassis number as  ending in H50 rather than HS0 thats listed on the Q plate ID

 

but the better question is how did it end up on a Q plate back in 1997, and does the vehicle retain any of its original ID? (ie Chassis number) if some original ID can be found then the next question is did it manage to get computerised on its original registration mark back in the 1970s/1980's and if so can said record be found?

if that can be achieved, then its just a V62 for the correct ID 

otherwise even if an original vehicle registration record cannot be found, then a dating letter from an appropriate club should be enough to get it age related plate to replace the Q plate

 

TL;DR Q plate Smoo plate whatever doesn't phase me :) (as a bonus side note, its fun to see that Not taxed for on road use is still in the "NOT LICENSED" taxation class and after 47 years no ones corrected that spelling mistake) 

(I dont think this is the first time its been for sale/in this thread because I remember looking up these registration marks before LOL)
