As you say, it's a right person, right time sort of car, very specialist... and VERY difficult to put a value on...

Only asking a value as I might sell it, if it was for sale I'd put the ad in the classified section.

Insurance isn't a problem, no no-claims bonus as it's a new policy, limited mileage full comp with all mods declared, stored off road no a drive not garaged £135.

It has an agreed value of £5000 but this doesn't mean someone will pay that privately, they migh pay more????????
