Well spotted John

This car (and seller) was on eBay last year at 8 000 sterling.
Evidently it didn't sell :mrgreen:

Nothing new (not even the photo) but this Coupé is still vaguely for sale by Pascal Curt in Lyon.
It was first advertised in 2013 with photos taken in the UK.
In 2014 it appeared with this photo, bonnet open.
The bonnet is still open - and the other photos in the ad are of a well-known swiss car which has nothing to do with it.
Bet you are tempted at the price ...

"Pour amateur averti". In other words, make sure you know what you're letting yourself in for... :D
If it sells at that price, mine was obviously far too cheap... But I doubt it!

My thoughts exactly :mrgreen:
I didn't note the asking price in 2014, but that is probably the main reason it didn't (and won't) sell.

I'm getting confused by all the Coupés for sale at the moment.

I don't think anyone has posted this one which is at QRG for 14 000 sterling.
Is it Ted Howles' old car KBE 752E chassis 0535 ?

A very nice car.

This one I know has been on the forum but I thought It would be best to update on here too.
It has been for sale at Brightwells twice this year, an almost- finished project which has at least acquired an engine since its last appearance.
Why on earth don't they finish the thing before selling it ?

Following that, a dutch car for sale at a swiss price.
This is a well-known and documented car, it used to be HNH1 then PYY 726D then sold to Holland and registered DZ-31-17.
Robert Kilian brought it to Goodwood in 2018, now for sale in Naarden NL for 31 000 euros.
