Here is a great looking gen 3 example in my favourite colour blue.
At £9995 it is pricey

Looks lovely ...

I think I saw this at WGT a little while back.

It was very clean, interior was near perfect some considerable work had been done I was told.

I am thinking of bidding on this one.
Do we have any knowledge of the car?

No Knowledge, but sounds like someones pulled it out of a garage after years, given it a blow over and now selling it on, fresh paint could be hiding lots of sins. Look underneath carefully check all the usual corrosion points are sound, not just covered over with underseal or fibreglass!

Thanks James.
The car is in Scotland, the auction is tomorrow so no chance to view.
No advisories on MOT done this week. Previous MOT expired in 2010 but no history of advisories previously.
Yeah it is probably too big a risk but still tempted and it is in my favourite colour. :shock: :x
Was hoping we might know the history

Kevin the divers seat is well worn and it's had 10 owners, with no photos from under the bonnet I think it would be too much of a risk.
All the best

All that's really known is that the First Owner was a Paul Nattrass.

It was noted on the register in 2012; at that time on SORN. It's location at that time was not known but we came across it in the records of 3 Spires Mazda, Litchfield, where it had been sold new.

Not much help but all there is.....
