I didn’t even notice the odd plates.

Think the seller needs a few lessons on how to do a decent advert

In the oldens days we used to respond to a couple of lines in a free sheet or the exchange and mart, and then we got Autotrader who'd show us a hastily shot b&w pic. What does it matter what's in the ad, if you are realy interested you will find out more. People don't make ads for everyone to make comments on what's right and wrong with their car, even though there are quite a few who do make comments (me included) in what we see.
It's up to the seller how they advertise and sell their car. If they can not be bothered will a well written advert, with good pictures, then that's up to them. But I think they buyer is looking for someone to go and have a look and make a deal there and then, avoid the sellers fees and loads of bullshit from tyre kickers and armchair buyers.

Probably a bit too expensive to break, but I used the CR internals from one of these boxes to rebuild my 1128 box. A slight, easy mod is required ( chamfer to the case ) and has the benefit of larger diameter layshaft and bearings.......

Nobody has posted this yet, or were you all hoping to put a bid in? 😉
