It’s without reserve. 

Lets all agree not to bid for it and I’ll get it for £15k

That’s Ernie Cole’s old car... We all (well both) ran rough old 4’s but that one was much tired err than most - Fun times though!

That is great Tom, an unusual TR4 for sure. Now you can play cops and robbers with your TR friends.

When I bought my 4A in 1983, a work colleague sold me a workshop manual he had from his brother, who was a mechanic with the Metropolitan Police. I've always thought that the WSM came from the Met, but my colleague and his brother originated from Southend, so maybe the manual was for this car. There's nothing in the WSM to idicate its provenance though.

Well done Tom. That's a car I would like as I am from Southend-on-Sea. Don't remember the car though. It wouldn't have chased me as I was 11.
