Interesting estimate on the straight six - it sold for similar before the engine was done. And I seem to remember the photos on the previous sale made the restoration quality look questionable

Does it actually have an engine fitted? Looks awfully high at the front.

Definitely not in the photos - I'm 99% they're the same ones that were used last time it was auctioned.

Faulty sight?

Nice looking GT Ref.C1173467 on Car & Classic ad.
But am I seeing it right: no wipers? :shock:

Clear as mud.
The car was in Brghtwells Auction in april, apparently it didn't sell.
They are not the same photos, and they seem to have installed an engine, but you'd think they might finish the interior and put wipers on it.
It looks very good at the price estimate.
