eBay tat volume 3.


Recommended Posts

I'd forgotten about Mk1 Punto GTs, they're so blood rare. They never got great reviews but at that time there weren't many turbo hatches about. I wanted one for 10 minutes, anyway. Not really like this one though.

Yes, an actual Tercel.  Rarer than dinosaur poo.  Haven't seen one on the road for at least a decade.

'original paint'

 

{1971}

Hello, Stourbridge on Twatt VW, how may one help?

Ahh, good afternoon, do you sell Vols-var=gen carm per vehicles?

Yes sir, we do. 

Please order me one in 25 years before Peugeot could think of it council garage door green, thanks.

No problem, anything else?

Yes, I'd also like it to look like SpongeBob Squarepants fell into a vat of Nitromors and went breakdancing across the roof

Anything else?

Yes, I want the fucking boot lid to be the same colour as a 1960's council house downstairs bog.

No problem sir, it'll be in next week.

'totally rust free'

 

One of the best things I've read so far this year (although yesterday was mainly hangover and today swearing at the bicycle)

This looks like a fun worthwhile project. £800 opener, got a bid immediately

 

Look it's also in the perfect state to weld on pre-1973 chassis plates like all the wankers that own these do

Hot.  If there's any justice, it'll escape the hyenas circling the auction, chopped springs and ill-fitting tyres in hand.

I am going to whizz down and have a butchers at this honey in the morning...

I wanted a 164 for a while but never found the right 3.0. Worth the chew for the bewildering heater controls.

 

Yeah, they tried to crack the company car lists with those, but naturally failed. For anyone that doesn't know, the heater controls really were peculiar to say the the least.  The horizontal gauges were brilliant, but the dash looks like a set of fairy-lights. Dead pixels too made it even harder to understand.

The '76 Princess posted above by Sorn Me is quite probably a nut-and-bolt restoration done to the very highest standard.  If I'm correct, the owner/restorer of it also has a stupidly rare limousine Princess he was working on restoring and may be the same person that sold a buttload of really exceptional spares than a Land Rover affiliated user on here bought.
