Barn Find - 1973 Saloon
Posted 22 October 2009 - 08:06 AM
The proprietor would like rid of it... and I'd quite like to take it off his hands.
It's been sat for five years, so presumably a non-starter!
Working on the assumption that the engine will need a serious overhaul.
But there is an engine in there.
There is no glass.
The boot floor has been (badly) patched and I only had one minute to look it over otherwise (wife was yelling for me to hurry up!)
What should I do? Make him a £100 offer?
(Oh and I have nowhere to store it - we'll work on that problem later!! )

i would go with £100 as it's only likely to cost him money to get rid of it

I might even try £50 and be prepared to go to £100.
The thing about a 73 is that it's really old, but not quite old enough. [for tax exemption that is]
Now, where will I put it... Hmm.

73 could be tax exempt,
whats the reg?
I don't think so in this case:

The information contained on this page is correct at the time of enquiry.

It's been off the road for 13 years!!

Will this one be ready in time for your first born to drive?
For £100, go for it, especially if you can get it tax exempt
Let me know what you decide to do with the engine as im after one to rebuild.
