I work in marine insurance and see this sort of thing from time to time on ships' diesel generator engines and occasionally main engines, larger scale and quite dangerous for anyone standing in the vicinity! :shock:

By design this seems to be aimed at scotsmen - though on the other hand the price tag will scare off any decent Scot :lol:

Thanks to Kev / Snoopy64 for the nod on this one - all is not what it seems, say's it's a December '63 Mk1 but it's hydrolastic, has January '66 onwards door handles with the safety bosses, a '64 onwards full width front valance, a Mk2 instrument binnacle and the rear screen looks wider than a Mk1....

Whether the seller is aware of any of this or not I don't know.
