That looks a good car to buy and use doesn't it. Even if he has left the door pull cords on and left the overriders off. I think it looks great. It'll be interesting to see what that makes at auction.

Nice early one but looks like the salty coastal air has got to it

Needs a lot of bodywork I reckon. Nice original spec though isn't it? It's on ebay as well. Auction is upto £3,000 so far - reserve not met.
It would be a mistake to underestimate the cost of restoring a car like this I'm afraid.

£16,388 achieved for this, seems a good buy

I agree. That is MUCH less than the cost of creating such a car! I'd be glad to own that.

A really cracking little Aussie 850.

I'm normally not one for extra trims etc, but that Aussie 850 looks very smart and unusual.
Of course I know what a dipstick is, you get called something often enough you look it up!

That's exactly what I thought. A real time warp car.
