This looks interesting ....

She's been off the road since 2013 , the DVLA database is showing it as a 2.0 , seller says its overdrive ...the stuck in gear will probably just be the clutch siezed ..relatively easy fix ...

1962 WITH NICE AGE RELATED NUMBER IS A BONUS TOO ...

If I had the space and money , this would be heading my way ...

You may not be able to remove the registration number.
Anything with an "S" in a 6 digit plate is often a reissue and so you cannot transfer it.
It can of course be retained if the car is used or modified.

YOU ARE RIGHT ..Its a re-issue that would have been issued late 90's from memory ( I was a number plate dealer in the 80's and 90's )...undoubtably due to having its original number transferred ...That's why I referred to it as an age related number .
The point I was trying to make was that it would look completely at home on a Formosa 120 GR as it has no defining age suffix like many Vitesses do ...
If someone was looking to put a non-specific date of issue number plate on one of my cars , to get a 6 digit number , the cheapest one DVLA will sell you is 399 ....so to get one included in the deal is a nice sweetener and makes the donor even more attractive in my eyes ...

Had a really nice phonecall today ...a guy from Cromer in Norfolk phoned me to say he is going down to pick this car up tomorrow as it ticks all his boxes for his build plans ....namely , an F 120 GR.

I am so pleased because its perfect for one of my kits and a good price.

He is going to send me some pictures when he gets it home and starts pulling it apart with a view to ordering the kit in the new year ...

Wow, must be something in the Norfolk air.

Hope to see the build process and the car on the roads hereabouts in the not too distant future.

I think you could be onto something highlighting the donor cars for 120 builds

Gary, great that your strategy looks like it is paying off. All the hard work and thinking it through was worth it.

This ones a bit sad but an offer on it might be worth a go , its been on for a while and is too far gone for a 'normal' buyer ...its got some decent 'cashback' bits as well ...

I'd buy the seats ...

As long as you follow the same dimensions or footprint as the original chassis , ie don't narrow or widen the chassis , you can use a box section as the rules allow a boxed channel as part of a chassis refurb . If you were restoring it might bother you , but we aren't restoring , we are improving !!!
