There is a similar one - Manx and spotless - that regularly turns up at the pub classic car meet that I attend. I wonder if he knows how much it's worth!

They sold another for big money at the weekend. I really don't know why they are so valuable, perhaps hand built cars are beginning to get the recognition they deserve ?

I guess the youngsters who want a beach buggy no longer have the desire to build one for themselves. The only alternative is to buy one already built?

I sold this last September,

the chap who bought it added new wheels, exhaust, steering wheel and some F badges, along with a stripe.

He also added over 100K , fair play to him if he can get close to that sort of money.

Same with my old 250 Testarossa. I thought I did well achieving the price I got but it was to a dealer. He promptly tripled the price and sold it, then it was sold again with another 20k added to the price !
I see the original Ferrari running gear and new body created from the above is up for sale. The seller now claiming it as an original, its a long story ! https://www.carandclassic.com/car/C1587763
The classic and classic replica scene is where the money is at. Many of the cars at Malvern in the trade hall fell into this category , GT40's and most of the Cobra's and the Stratos etc etc. To think my first kit, a Brightwheel Viper was 995 for the body and chassis kit, totalled well under 5K to complete !

I bought a Brightwheel Viper chassis but never got as far as building it. I sold it with Cortina Mk4 suspension and an engine out of my TVR Tuscan V6. It is registered as a 2door red Ford convertible NKH30A if it ever turns up.
