Spotted this on ebay! Admittedly some fool had played around with it long ago and deseamed it and added a bodykit etc etc. But its just an example of how not to treat an aspiring asset!

What's it worth in show condition....maybe £14-£18,000. What's worth in that condition, well to me nothing but some questionable people are bidding on it

So it's not to everyone's taste but then that's what makes the world go round isn't it?

Someone will buy it and maybe restore it back to it's former glory :thumbs

I agree taste is always something very individual! But its a bit like taking an antique bronze and painting it or for that matter painting out the canvass on a priceless old master or for that matter tearing up a winning lottery ticket!

As for putting it back to original, well the deseaming has put paid to that! As for the vendor saying it would make a 'show stopper' and 'get you noticed', well I wouldn't want the disdain that its bound to attract.

That said there is value in the parts, engine and box, the hard to get speedo and other bits!

;)
