I have sent a question to the seller asking for the chassis number. It is probably a long lost one but there are some 'tasty' original bits there that are actively being searched for at the moment.

I can't claim to be able to recognise it, but the text of the ad does say:
The engine that is currently in the car is a 1756cc Fiat Twin cam and what looks be matching transmission

Its chassis 200054 and we have some info of an earlier owner already.
I was hoping it might be 200120 and red which would prove the person writing up the chassis book at Reliant swapped with 200121 which is white and recorded red. They were shipped on the same invoice to Canada and made 1 day apart.

Excuse the language - bloody hell fire - it sold for $5002.01.
I wonder if that engine is worth a lot and the rest of the car gets junked which would be a disaster

Not sure a Fiat Twin Cam is worth $5k. The winner was a zero rated bidder so it may end up back on eBay shortly.

A fiat twin cam may be worth $5k in America? But yes, I suspect it'll be for sale again soon :-)

Mmmmm didn't notice that. We know one of the bidders who needs it for parts for a restoration but he baled out when it went silly. Need to keep tabs on it for him.
