That's the one that's basically a new car after being bare metal restored. But it's still silly money!

Apparently they spent in the region of 70,000 pounds on the restoration!!

When you take this into account Rob probably not too bad then but still a very large sum of UK pounds .... I think I seriously need to increase the insurance value of mine seeing current prices & trend.

They clearly haven't heard that unrestored cars often command the best prices now. Recognised as art pieces.

This is a collection of new parts. Fabulous, but without the authenticity of a factory original.

I have to agree. It will have lost any character it may have developed over the years. In some ways a good thing as it shouldn't have any faults either but if anyone actually buys it it's unlikely to get used I think.
Which is a shame.
