Yes,that does look like a viable project rather than junk that's stood in the rain for the last 25 years.

Still much to do,so not for the faint hearted.

That looks very sound, but the seller will not post to France :mrgreen:
Also I tried to contact him via eBay for details but apparently that doesn't work from France either.
Could someone try for me for the (alternative) register please.
The green car on wires looks familiar, I'll look it up if I have time.

The green car is almost certainly HBF 499C, a beautiful car photographed by Chris Russell in Devon in 2015
Restored in 2011 apparently, chassis 0095

Yup, happy to do that for you. I'll report back. :)

Interestingly, there's a large RSSOC roundel to the right of the picture in the ad so perhaps the seller is, or has been, a member.

On the web there are a couple of photos of the green car in shows in the Devon area in 2018... if that helps at all.

Thanks, ian


If it is made of nuts and bolts I WILL take it apart..... going back together is a whole different ball game

Hi Chris.

I have just had a reply from the seller, Bryan Newbury. He is an RSSOC member.

The car is chassis number 400704
Registration PMT 341F

It is on the register but at least you now have more details regarding condition etc.. :wink:

Sorry, skipped over this and didn’t look closely at the picture - that’s Bryan driving! :oops:
