i bought another one. whoops.....

Post  miniman86 on Sun Sep 04, 2011 9:42 am

hey everyone, found this on ebay locally to me, with only two pics of her, and a tiny description, i decided to go and look at her..... after the auction had ended, and i didn't bid on her, the guy called me to say the winning bidder had mucked him about, and was i still interested? so car and trailer at the ready, down i went to get her..... she does need quite abit of work, but she does have alot of good points too, and hasn't been used in years as far as i'm aware (reg number doesn't come up on the DVLA computer) anyone seen this one around before years ago? it does have some kind of strange 12" wheels & some chrome hub caps (wheels look non mini)

I'll attach some pics below, tell me what you think

Alex

I was watching this as well. The price was on £1.20 for a long time, and I was allowed to buy it if I didn't spend more than £2!

Did you see the other one the guys got for sale? That seems to be fetching good money.

Good luck!

Hi, wheels probably imp/ stilletto as the wheel trims are Sunbeam Stilletto. Had Imp wheels on my Elf many years ago. They are designed for larger wheel niuts than the Elf/Mini. Nice find in mono tone.

My mistake, 2 were listed at the same time, and the pictures showed them to be in what looked like the same garage!

Willing to share how much you spent? I know the winning bid was £420.
