Not yet - further posts may indicate he’s just bought it V. cheap and is flipping it for a profit.

Incidentally, there are 771 entries on the list.
Allowing for duplicates, changes of reg number etc, that is about 75% of the cars built.
As to how many still exist in the flesh ...
I'll let someone else work it out :mrgreen:

I notice a couple of problems on the abbreviated list, there are zeros which appear from nowhere (not on full list)
and the last half dozen cars seem to have lost their chassis numbers, I'll look into this.

The red car is not a new discovery, nor is it chassis 0025 ...
This one is on the list since forever, with a photo from 2004 :W
I'll cross no 25 off.

Ah - but the old discussion about the first cars could make someone think #28 was the 25th one?

There are so many white cars in restoration that it would be difficult to identify the other car.
It looks quite a project :|

Interestingly the seller also seems to have sold last year a certain well-known car which I didn't even know was for sale ...

Wasn't it supposed to be turning into a TVR, Steve?
