I would've liked to seen the fitted luggage on lot 346. Too bad the boot was full of 'stuff'.

Isn’t that the car, the Regency red one, sold by an owner on here?

Asking for a friend?

Regency car is similar to mine but it seems to be sitting 2” high maybe more. It can’t drive well with that set up.

That struck me too and the front wishbone angles confirm it. Front shocks don't look to be height adjustable either so maybe the suspension hardware was torqued at full droop instead of at ride height ?

Interesting to see what the Regency car goes for. Its had money spent but the close up of the paint doesn't look great either, guided at 38-45K seems high but no idea what the market is like really

None of them sold, but this mint 250GTE sold well! Just an engine needed, and a new shell, suspension, steering, brakes, interior....etc.
