Hi, Have spoken at length to the seller and can confirm that the car is a TR250 with a CD com number and a CC engine number.
It was brought into the country in about 1996 and converted to RHD and registered ( but don't know what as ).
The seller took the car in payment as a bad debt some time ago from someone who acquired the car in 2002 ( as the 3rd owner )
and as the person had lost the log book he applied for a replacement. The first one that came had it as a TR2 which was obviously wrong so he spoke to some one at the DVLA and explained that it was a TR 250 the american version of a TR5. The diphead at the DVLA said that their computers could not recognise that so when the log book arrived again it was down as a TR5
The seller is quite open in stating what has happened and it all depends on who buys it, as to how honest or not what the car is eventually sold as once its been restored.
I have no idea how much its worth given the circumstances above, but £ 10k sounds a lot for a TR250 in need of restoration, even though its already converted to RHD.
