I don’t think it’s on the register if anyone gets the chassis number?

Relocated number plate and bumper cutouts suggest an intercooler?

Well used I think - the doors don't fit very well and interior needs work - passenger door panel damaged - still cheap if the price does not escalate too much.

About 40 mk1 IIRC - most are still around I reckon but impossible to be 100% accurate as they’re not all on the Club register.

Price and number of bids gradually rising......I've never seen the point of bidding early on an auction sale such as this or am I being thick :?:

Only reason I can think of is to get the price to a point where the seller is happy to let the sale continue

I think it looks like a good proposition. Going a bit pink but its a decent example of a rare breed and higly desirable, drooping doors and a slightly pushed in interior door panel are nothing, If I didn't have an 1800ti I'd be all over this like a rash.

Bet it sells for over £2500!

The highest bidder was on Facebook IIRC - went to pick it up and walked away.

This was first flagged up on here in early Feb, when it came up for sale. I've merged this with the earlier thread.
