    Wouldn’t mind the 250 superdream but it’s either over priced or seriously gaining value. I had the 400 and sold it for just under £500 nearly 20 years ago, if I still had it would definitely keep it.

    In the title it says ‘best in UK’.
    Really?

    Looking at the jumble of untidy wires in the engine bay and the dirty state of the engine bay If this is the best in the UK mine must be one of the best in the known universe LOL

    And have personally built 14 over the past 35 years! So trust me you wont find a better example.

    If this is his idea of the best example I dread to think what the rest of what he's built are like. OK, the inside and the bodywork look tidy enough, but like said above the engine bay wouldn't fill me with enough confidence for a long drive. There was me thinking I still need to tidy mine up but compared to this its already mint.

    That said he definitely does have some interesting stuff for sale, I like the look of that Austin Sportsman. Pity I haven't got space in the garage.........

    My Roadster is my first full rebuild and currently I’m on the wiring, I hope to end up with neater wiring than that other wise I will strip it all out and start again.
    I like the 250 superdream he has, I had the 400 many moons ago.

    Buyer beware.
    but it does not help to denigrate sellers that may be MOC members.
