The needles in the the speedo and rev counter in the two Rover P5B Coupes I had looked like they were conducting the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at the Albert Hall every time I drove them!

I was thinking exactly the same as you Graeme. All dressed up and nowhere to go. Or as my mum used to say, big fur coat and no knickers. Just an expensive vanity project. Well done, but what for......? But each to his own

Yes, I thought that was probably the wrong phrase after I'd written it. Have a great rest of the day Graeme

and second is a tidy looking Morris 1100 MkII, being sold with no reserve. It looks clean enough, but I'd be checking for filler in the usual places before bidding.

Blimey, that 1100 has had the hydrolastic pumped up a bit hasn't it :shock:
Yes, I reckon there'll be some filler in that one. Had a bit of a blowover hasn't it. Not Teal Blue though I don't think. A little too early a car anyway isn't it? Blue Royale or Trafalgar Blue maybe?

Well I think the Mathewson’s car, which became probably the most quoted auction result of recent times has just been blown out of the water by this absolutely astounding result! :o
