Scam I would guess. Same MO as one the other day.

Most likely refuse viewing/collection, accept £1000 take the money promising delivery and it never comes. :idea:

Or it could be a cheap shell, which I doubt. :lol:

Seller only says can arrange UK delivery - presumably you as the purchaser pick up the tab and the Elephant in the room is getting it off the islands will be a right faff - As we will shortly be into the Winter season there is no passenger service which hinders things (Even that costs £50) and the only obvious option is via this tub : https://www.islesofscilly-travel.co.uk/freight/ Short of using a sea container with all the associated costs how do they safely package a bodyshell to crane into onto and off a boat and ship it to a destination in the UK when you can't just simply drive on and off a Ro-ro ferry? Think it rather explains the buy it now price of £1000.

Hi Callum. Delivery will be via transporter that I have a credit note with and I’ll include it all for £1000 delivered to your door. Thanks

I've a friend and fellow Mini enthusiast who's lived on St Mary's for years and says that if that's on the island without him knowing about it he'll eat his computer.

I've sent the selling a message asking if he can take a look at it for me. Cue radio silence......

“old and colored gives a lovely vintage glow to your car” !!!!!!!


I've got a few lovely old chips containers out in the skip that he can smoke with his crack - that combined with the frying grease will create a nice vintage glow... :lol:
