Silver S1 appeared in an Ad for a Classic Car Auction to be at Gaydon in March 2016. Same keeper since 1980. Estimate then was £10k-£12
FRA looks the business but DVLA says no Tax or Test on it at the mo.

And it had stripes!.......where they gone???? cue tearful emoticon.

I noticed that.....can't make out the name. 'Rotala'? For £15k of my money I'd want better.

Elford turbo for 4 and a half grand....

it's a right pile of shit, I went to look at this a few months back when the previous seller offered it to me for £1200 which was £700 more than it was worth so I walked away....

Looks in good shape but the photos are quite low res so difficult to see any minor faults. Not keen on that front spoiler, is it original, TWR or factory option?
Being advertised for that sort of money i think there should be more high resolution photos, especially of the usual areas that rot, sills, underbody, rear arches, etc.
