Ummmm.....maybe Ballypete missed a real bargain with that Sprint 20vt in Chichester?

He could have bought it at a knock-down price of £9,999 - instead of the price it is now advertised for on Autotrader.....



£12,990 shocked shocked

The seats and door card leathers are filthy and worn out. How is it possible to wear the seats out in 25k miles?

Yes or the mileage is incorrect. If the wear is that bad. It smells fishy to me. Where the hell does that saying come from anyway????? Smells fishy = not right? Some things that smelly fishy are actually great laugh

Reading through this and other threads on buying a Coupe, checking the car its maintenance, owner and care is paramount. What has occurred to me that even with all the checks it is often difficult to assess some of the rust issues without the removal of the wheel arch liners, some cars appear mint on the outside but beneath in hidden areas tin worm is lurking, some owners have left this and this has meant enthusiast owner's who wish to keep their Coupe's face bills of £000's. I would be suspicious of any Coupe listed as 'rust fee' unless proof of work/maintenance has been undertaken given their foibles and gaining years. Ownership demographics have changed in the time I have had mine, from new-ish car, to big powah modders, to shed money turn up the boost crowd and now to an appreciating classic standard car that will cost ££'s to keep in good condition.
