Isn’t this “previous owner was....” a bit irrelevant, if its been fully restored?

Fair enough, if original interior etc, but other wise, it meaningless IMHO .

It's been restored back to the condition, colour and spec it was in when Rod bought it new, the current owner bought it from Amari in Preston, they bought it from the previous owner who painted it blue and changed the spec.

Interestingly, if it was Paul McCartney who owned the 400GT they are selling as 'potentially' his (in itself a very odd turn of phrase), Linda forgot to put on the handbrake, and it rolled into his pond. He sold it shortly afterwards, and I seem to recall him quoted as saying he wasn't sure it was worth pulling out of there. if it was deeper he'd have left it! :lol:

In my eyes this distances the car even further from Rod. For me to value a cars connection with a person, they would have to of potentially touched the surfaces (seats, paint, interior) as they exist now - sounds a bit weird, but sure you get the idea :?

I'm sure if you carried out a detailed forensic inspection you would find some of Rod's DNA in there somewhere :roll:

I agree, sort of.... all of the major components, chassis and body panels on the car are the originals though ;)

Pretty looking supercharged 1960 Austin Seven coming up at Barons next month with a realistic estimate.
