It's puzzling, because previous searches have not come up with this ad.
Nice looking car (in 2014) and at a bargain price, it must have sold as you say.

Well spotted - in fact one of my spies sent me the link this afternoon :wink:
Looks a bit of a job, I hope someone takes it on.

Looks like a spiders long-term home; at least there shouldn't be many flies around!

My computer has just found Erik's contribution, I'll look into that.
Meanwhile by strange coincidence Reinoud Klaarenbeek has sent me a major dossier, first of all to clear up my error in mixing his car DH-96-66 with 17-VX-17.
My excuse is they are both blue :oops:
Anyway, we now have definitive data from the dutch registration authority on most dutch Coupés, including two new ones for the list :

56-01-JZ NL mar ’71 no mot NEW

74-78-DJ NL mar ’67 mot aug ’20 axel tenkink

94-88-DG NL jan ’67 mot mar ’21 wim deinum

AE-61-28 UK jan ’70 NL jun ’99 mot jun ’16 marcel kolk

DR-77-72 UK mai ’69 NL avr ’98 mot jul ’19 NEW

FS-95-TB UK mar ’68 NL fév ’80 no mot a vervoort sold ‘95

LV-90-KR UK jun ’67 was JKG 241E NL fév ’85 no mot last owner change ’14 LHD

DR-45-21 UK mar ’68 was MFW 723F NL oct ’97 mot jun ’20 nico van rijn LHD conversion

DZ-31-17 UK jul ’66 was PYY 726D NL mar ’17 mot dec ’19 robert kilian

DH-96-66 UK aug ’67 was GJY 598F chris lloyd NL jul ’94 rob adolfs sold ’08 to reinoud klaarenbeek mot jun ’20

17-VX-17 UK was CBG 565C NL jun ’78 cj braat, alphen-an-der-rijn ’18 victor scheren rescued from garden, in resto no mot

The register is updated but I haven't had time to amend my site yet.
Here are a couple of photos of 17-VX-17, one I had on file for years without being able to identify it and the other supplied by Reinoud as it was last year before the start of a fairly major renovation.
I can also add one car which is not on Reinoud's list :

91-65-BF NL origin LHD ben mulder since ‘83

I haven't made any progress with the Zandvoort car
There are a number of dutch cars without photos, none are ivory/beige - but several have no note of colour.
The registration looks like TC-75-??

At the same time I have found more info and queries on dutch cars

A very similar number to Reinoud's car, and blue metallic, this has an almost full history ...
DM-06-66 chassis 0863 orig lhd NL imported by roel van der wee, colour change black to blue, sold to rob storsbergen owned ten years, vente 7650€ jul ’16 in portugal, now HEI-SE 70H germany

And here's a puzzle, I seem to have mixed two cars again (both red this time)
HFU 244D chassis 0164 exported to holland ’91, sold in pieces ’08-’09
HOO 465B chassis 0007 ogle mini nose exported to holland ’91, sold ’08-’09

I was trying to identify this dutch car, which is a V6 so not either of the above :wink:

Any clues?

Isn't HOO chassis 0008? (see this page earlier in thread :) )

Yes, sorry, 0007 is (one of?) the IRS cars.
