  1. That's a question bigger than my brain can handle Mick - My take is that it's a bit like the housing market, first time buyers are being awfully cautious with their money and waiting for this Brexit shenanigans to come to a conclusion. Good cars will always find new homes from genuine buyers that understand the market fluctuations. Other's see it as a good opportunity to strike a decent deal on a luxury item. Regards Mark
  2. I wasn't actually there yesterday Mick (Son's Footy) but understand the red one made about £26k plus commission. Mark
  3. Sorry to contradict Stuart but you're mixing this car up with another. The car at ACA hasn't been on the market since 1985 and certainly hasn't been on Ebay recently or ever! Needed a lot of work, in fact starting again from scratch, although the chassis and body were decent, the paint finish was awful, I did several walk around descriptions for interested parties. Interestingly it made more than the running driving scruffy red one which I thought was a better car!
  4. Mike, I have looked at this car if you want to send me a message or call me to discuss. Regards Mark

    Slipping Clutch

    That gearbox oil looks awful - My gearbox man (now in his late 60's and has worked on TR's since his teens) only recommends 80/90 GL4 for TR Boxes and Overdrives. He has rebuilt many a gearbox that has been filled with the wrong oil and this can prove awfully expensive! Mark
  6. I've got a NS (New Old Stock) Stanpart Outer Rear wing for a TR5 and an Offside Inner Rear Wing (not sure if Stanpart but looks original - cover in surface rust) I've listed the outer wing on the classified section but thought I'd give anyone interested a heads up before listing on Ebay etc.... Both been stored since the 70's and both unfitted. Best offer for both and collection from Suffolk only. Regards Mark
  7. So I was asked by a client to have a look at the advert for KRS 613F on the 12th Feb 2019 as I have sold and owned many TR5's over the years. I subsequently HPI'd the car to mainly check the chassis and engine number to ensure it was a genuine TR5, which it is / was. The HPI check highlighted that the car was listed as an Insurance Write off (total loss) with HPI on the 14th Dec 1995. I merely fed this information back to my client and he emailed the vendor to discuss as I understand. That's as far as I went as he didn't want the car inspected based on that information. Regards Mark
  8. CTM Chassis's are also "Jigged" correctly in-house to much better than new tolerance / specification. Worth every penny!
  9. Might break if enough interest..... But would really rather not
  10. Please PM me if you have any Sidescreens for a 1958 3A - Black Only and in VGC please..... Regards Mark
  11. Its been plated and its a bit crispy at the front where the anti roll bar joins, it could be salvaged but I would send it to CTM to use as a donor to do it properly or buy Conrad's one and start the restoration properly.
  12. To be honest....... It's a genuine UK 150 BHP car with overdrive, hardtop, rebuilt engine and some new bits.....(thats the good bits) But does need to be saved.....It needs lots of work but very restorable, needs someone who understands the value once complete. I didn't really want it to be broken for spares as these cars need to be put back on the road..... Sometimes I forget that I only really enjoy "fully Restored" cars....
  13. Ive just picked up a K Reg UK 150 BHP TR6 Project. It needs a lot of work, in fact body off nut and bolt restoration car. The engine has been totally rebuilt and is out of the car on an engine stand, it has an overdrive gearbox, hardtop all gauges, throttle bodies etc..... The front wings and doors are off the car, however they will all repair (the doors are really good) - it looks very sorry for itself....... I have the history file, V5C and it has some new bits included..... Will be advertised on the normal sites shortly but thought if anyone wants a full blown project on here let me know..... £7950
