I have seen this car at a car show. It is near perfection. As close to 'as new' as you can get. A rare car.

"I believe the Olive Green colour was phased out from March 1970, around the same time as Mk3 production started so I would assume that only small numbers of the earliest cars would have had the green engines?"
Just an observation from the net!

That's what we understood too, so, we were really careful scraping the many years of crud off, and, this engine/gearbox assembly was definitely originally green, absolutely no doubt.......

Well, one more day left, hovering at 20KUS $, surprised this hasn't generated more interest here....

What's it going to go for???

It looks like a nice car, but I'd be surprised if it goers much over £20,000 it's still not a bad price for a MK3.

£3500 to ship it over?

Looking like value compared to some of the ludicrous prices here of late.

It cost me £1100 to ship an S over from the States. £3500 seems very high.
