Can't help but feel "immaculate" is a bold statement of condition for a car that hasn't been cleaned and inspected.

Does look good under that dust though.... But don't they often.

Good thing my dog wasn't around when he/she put the chips down to take the photo. It looks like a dry lock-up - very rare.

Possibly, but it's just too much of an unknown quantity. Why couldn't the owner simply push it out of the garage, wash it, and get photos of more than just the rear end? It raises my suspicions somewhat...

I was going to view it for someone and try and start it but that was before it went on sale...its had a respray and has been dry stored..just going on the pictures that bumper is not rusty looks like new lights and the mot history is very good...i think it probably is a bargain considering the rubbish that sells on ebay for that money...frankly i'm a bit suprised its still available

If I didn't have 3 already, plus customers cars swamping the place I would have bought it unseen. Sometimes you need to take the gamble.

Went for £1300, bonkers when they'd been offered £1500 by someone, underpriced in my opinion if the rest looks as good, would have put on ebay myself

I have bought numerous Scimitars unseen over the years that others have stated are bargains based on a few photos, and every one has turned out to be a money pit. In this case the seller was more interested in stating how many offers there had been rather then put up some decent photo's and a description. ... good luck to the buyer ... the lack of pictures, a decent description, a seller seemingly desperate to sell should ring alarm bells.... buyer beware
