Plus 2 in Stockton

PostPost by: greg40green » Tue Jun 16, 2020 12:36 pm

I like others are a little puzzled why this early +2 without engine and box has reached £8,100.00 on ebay.

I remember trying to sell my fully restored early +2 10 years ago ,I had great difficult in selling it.
I wish I still had it now as I've bought a +2 130 S for improvement , light restoration and am seriously considering selling it to pay the extra for a fully restored 130 S .

Seriously, anybody interested in my +2 130 S , new Spyder space frame chassis , sill sections, brakes and ' all ' running gear professionally refurbished a number of years ago then dry stored , paint work presentable , starts , drives etc .
Bargain . 10K , no offers
Please PM me if interested

Why?....I just don't understand it!
Hopefully the lucky new owner will come on here. It would be very interesting hear his/her line of thinking and what they intend to do with it going forward.

Simply unfathomable, ...it went for what it was worth if it had been complete with it's engine and box...and it was even missing it's Chapman wheel. Crazy, and odd :?

Not a single enquiry for my S 130 and its got a running engine and gear box .
Me thinking of taking them out and advertising for £8000.00, then sell engine and gear box separately .

They will be beating a path to my door . Not !!

A better prospect that the Stockton car, and complete with engine and gearbox and seemingly okay paint, went to £8,250 but failed to meet it's reserve on Ebay yesterday

Still can't understand it :?
