Be interesting to see where it ends up price wise as, unlike the Bangers and Cash car, I don't think I see much of the original car there.
As the KKD - x x x E cars were manufactured in Nov/Dec 1966 I guess when it was reregisterd in 2021 it was given a 1966 D reg from the locality where it was then residing.
I have seen this before on a car originally with an E reg but manufactured in ‘66.

Matthewsons have turned off the comments on their YouTube vids it seems.

Just as well. This thing is as rough as a badger's arse.

They were getting a large amount of negative comments, which is not surprising when you listen to the "Salemans Pitch" that they use.


Compare it with this auction video for this 1300 Traveller. It's like chalk and cheese.

I was told when I went up there last year that you don’t need to view the cars really as they expect you trust their description. Err…no, you definitely do need to view the cars. :lol:
