The 'Evans' Plus 2 again

PostPost by: Robbie693 » Sun Oct 25, 2015 1:21 am

Spotted the Plus 2 previously owned by Chris Evans up for sale again at Paul Matty's, looking even better than the last time I saw it actually. I notice on his website that the description mentions this is the last production Plus 2 known to exist..

So i was wondering what happened to the other 'last production Plus 2', discussed here a few years ago, white with oatmeal, at the time residing in Belgium as I recall. Has it ceased to exist?

If this is the case then the other one isn't the last??

Evans owned the car for a matter of what, 2 months. David had it for decades.

Re last one, see this active topic: for-sale-f34/the-last-only-37500-t35422.html

Thanks for the link Tim, I had missed the recent discussion.

I do though remember the post by Carl given in Steve's link

The car has been discussed here a few times as I recalled, but the last time it was for sale was in 2006 (so after Carl's friend's accident) and it had what appeared to be a new front end. A past lister here almost bought it from the the seller in Belgium. It was also advertised at the same time by UKSportscars, presumably as a commission sale. Since then however it seems to have gone to ground. Or in the ground :shock:
