link here to Brightwell's auction on 28th November . The chassis number according to TSAIF is SE5a, but the body/dash look SE5. Is this a crossover model? Looks nice though!

I thought the SE5a came in at #452500, which makes this a very late SE5 (and it certainly looks like a '71 spec with the side strips)?

Yep, late 5. There is an error in the first edition of TSAIF which shows the 5a as being introduced in 72 instead of 71.

Yes, a very late SE5......it does look lovely - very clean indeed. Will be interesting to see what price it yields...

It looks very tidy indeed and a sale within the estimate,say £5k,seems feasible.

BUT I tend to think that if the car is as good as it looks then a private sale within this price range would not be difficult.

So why the auction?

Went to view this car this week, what the pictures don't show is that the paint is pretty terrible. Bubbling on the roof and wing, peeling off at the rear and front ends, cracks on the bonnet corners.

Which is very different from the auctioneer's description! In which case the price range doesn't look so realistic. It will be interesting to see what it goes for
