In description and photo of MOT - reg C980JJW
So someone shipped a UK 7 to Aus to sell in an auction which didnt (reserve not met) sell?
Yes because traditionally FB's in Aus/NZ were twice the UK value, I believe.

Just checking if this one is on the register? Spotted at Essex Rotary today. Has been dry stored for a while, owner of about 20 years, based in Essex, is wanting to get it back on road. Around 40k on engine. Looked cosmetically very nice.

Another one coming out of the woodwork, series 3.
Off the road for 17 years so probably not on the register.

Dave had picked this one up back in Jan 2019 when it was advertised on Gumtree so it was on the register... it's been for sale on facebook a few times since but looks like it's sold on Ebay now for £1900.... hopefully it'll get re-commissioned.
