Coupe for sale @ Percival Motors

As for the Straight Six at Percival, on first looks its either on the money or cheap. I'd guess at on the money. Remember the solid grey one they had for £20K that didn't hang around too long and this one has a few issues such as the paint mismatch, lack of underside photos like the other one had a...

Coupe for sale @ Percival Motors

A lot more expensive than the V6 one on C and C (see below).
Appears to have a paint mismatch on one of the doors?

Very original looking V6 Coupe

If as good as it appears in the pictures it seems rather a bargain.
Cars that look no better have sold for a lot more!

Colour issue

Did Mulberry replace the very similar (to my eyes) Beaujolais red which was a popular colour on 5s?

SE5 with V8 engine for sale

I think you would be advised to take some advice from a club member near to you.

I believe the car could,dependant on overall condition,be worth a fair bit more than your suggested price.

BMW325i anyone ?

Assuming it eventually runs OK and gets an MOT,it doesn't appear a lot different from examples on C and C priced around £20K... :shock:

Car SOS

When Mike Brewer was judging the concours at the Silverstone Classic a couple of years ago, we tackled him about it, and he said that they would love to do one, but whenever they looked at it, they weren't able to work out a way of making it viable (even using the way they cost things, which isn't ...

Car SOS

I find it a matter of regret that neither Wheeler Dealers or Car SOS have done a Scimitar (of any type)...yet both have done a Morris Minor,a popular car in it's day but also a rather boring one.

GTC No.1 for sale

Isn't the simple solution to ask for forgiveness when you buy it? As nice as the C is, the Coupe looks much more interesting 8) That Coupe does look a nice example (apart from the hideous steering wheel!) Josh,I'm sure you will view the auction result with interest, as it will give you some guidanc...

Mikeys / Greenys / Colin Watson v8 Coupe

Paint job seems to be holding up well.

How long has it been done?

(It looks very like a colour I experimented with in my youth...because it had a cool name--"Rolls Royce Regal Red.")

Yes, as Jim says, 185/80HRx14 are very scarce - the only commonly available one that I'm aware of is the Vredestein Sprint Classic. A more popular general choice seems to be 195/70HRx14 (assuming standard wheels/usage).
Michelin MXV-P are available.... at £162 each.

Tyres

My car had 195 70HR 14's on the front and wider 70HR 14's on the back a typical solution my mechanic says I had no problem getting 185x80HR14's, in fact, they were the cheapest, not £50 a corner. I might put 205x80HR14's on the back next as the 80HR14's make the speedo read right The only "cheap" 1...
