There's also a bit of twaddle in the write-up.
It wasn't registered in Dec 1985, but Aug 1985 according to DVLA.
Also only 5 left with an MOT?? Where oh where has that come from? There's nearer 65/70 S3's currently road going at any one time.
At least 25 are 1985 cars.

Here is a series 2 for sale on Gumtree for £1500. Only for the brave or foolhardy I would suggest.

Dear god, I'm not sure what hurt my eyes more, the engine bay shot or the suggested price.

Engine bay caption should read 'Barn find RX7. Photo for attention' :lol:

Also only one black 1985 left with an MOT? Didn't Ian had one in the past?

I've got a S3 with an MOT in H1 black, I don't think any of these DVLA records are accurate.
