Is it actually an S though? The description has a ? after the S at the end of the description title. I didn't see anywhere it is claimed to be an S.

Interesting car, it is on an F plate (67/68) but has a late MK2 shell (69/70) unless it has had the rear seat back/bulkhead replaced.

If the description is accurate, whoever did the bodywork did a good job given the time since it was done.

That S is even worse than I imagined!


But what an amazing rescue job. I don't know if this sold/how much but it won't be cheap. There's something about wrecks like this that fire the imagination like a restored car doesn't.

A couple of interesting ones at the H&H Imperial War Museum, Duxford sale on Wednesday.

Is this the oldest surviving MG Metro Turbo? The MOT check site lists it as registered on 31st January 1983. As there are only 21 1983 Metro Turbos shown on the How Many Left site this one must be one of the earliest, if not the earliest. It's only had 2 owners and has not been on the road since 1990. Mileage is only 49,000, but the hydrogas looks like it needs a bit of work and looking at the engine bay shot it appears to have lost its turbo!!

The second is a '63 Austin Mini that has a bit of classic rallying history. It also has a fully modified engine (960cc) and large history file.

Went for £18k plus premium, and that had to be put to the family selling, but doubt they’ll turn it down

:shock:
