Another barn find but once again not sure what to offer ?

 

The car looks to be all original apart from wheels that the owner says he still has, the logbook states the car is a genuine GT which is the only thing about it that may save it from being farmed out for parts .

 

I think the colour is called Persian aqua (blue) but is covered in dust (so am i after viewing it) .

 

 

Any idea of its value so i dont pay too much  ???

 

(most of my images are too large to download unfortunately)

 

I have also been offered 5 interiors but once again not sure what im looking at so any help would be appreciated 

 

 

 

Cheers

It's really hard to tell from those pictures i am afraid.

 

The only thing you need  to see is how badly rotten it is and how much it's going to need to save it.

 

Could you not have rolled it out from where it's nestled?

I think a crane through the roof of the building is the only option as it looks welded to the floor .

 

It is in a bad way but not as bad as others ive seen sell on the bay so its a tuff call ?

 

The current owner purchased the car several years back from wood and picket no less !

Wood and Pickett did those bullbars for the clubman so that probably where they came from.

A few people did the bullbars , richard grant etc. Trim is std so doubt a w&p car.

 

There is a selection of spares , are they included? The amont of dust makes me think it was abodyshop at one time?

 

Depending on the extent of the rot/rust I think to offer a bag of sand would be a good shout for the mini and all the parts.

Offered £400 for just the car and seller accepted (damn) now have to figure out how to get it home and what to do with it ?

Not sure what to offer on the trim sets , i think theres 5 in total plus lots of clubman grills etc ... any ideas ?
