Got to love the term "Original Replica" :lol:
I asked the seller what 1964 parts remain on the car-he insists that it’s the original shell with lots of heritage panels fitted!!!
It’s a really nice car to be fair,but it isn’t nearly 17 grand nice,and it certainly isn’t from 1964.
Totally agree with that what you've said RS !

There is nothing on that shell that I can see that would indicate any part of it was built in 1964, but it is a lovely car looking car and looks well built.

An expensive log book, when you tot up cost of making it into a true 1071.......if indeed that is possible :mrgreen:
We all know there is not one bit of that car that original-apart from the vin plate perhaps
Not even the chassis number is 1071 :geek:
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it.

112 Quid for an Inno ashtray. :D :D :D
Mind you, you need 3 of them in total :shock:

on the positive side, such prices make my restoration of the 3 ashtrays including re-plating well worth. If I sold them I could probably finance the restoration of the whole car :lol:

Probably why he is trying to shift it before the HC comes. Just a 997 #?

Nice to see an honest ad for once.
Of course I know what a dipstick is, you get called something often enough you look it up!

Looks like an Inno shell from the wiper arrangement/scuttle panel. But it's not much of a bargain at the level it is at now. 1001 Innos are not worth much more when running, and that one's missing some expensive parts from the front.

A “1071 S”- in a mk4 shell with no engine or box.
Ten grand!!
I messaged the seller and commenting on the fact that it was not a mk3 shell and what parts were 1965.
His/her answer
"Hello there. Im saying mk 3 as its not a mk1/mk2
There is 65 paperwork which has been with car last 7 years. We know whats thats worth ? If there was more of original car it would not be 10k. Thx"

So there's your answer. The paperwork says it's a 65. Must have been a special model. I'd give it a ringing endorsement.
It's obvious what's happened; they've plucked a VIN from thin air, got a heritage certificate, built a car and registered it on an age related plate on the VIN.
