Plus 2

PostPost by: Type28 » Wed May 27, 2020 6:33 am

The picture shows a plus 2 that’s sat in the same spot for over 20 years. It’s located at Prestonpans just out side Edinburgh. Behind it is a sea wall . Anyone on the forum know anything about it. I like the colour.

With a location like that, I suspect it's very rusty now.

It looks like the same colour as the Metier. Nice!

I think the cars chassis, suspension and other metal bits will be shot. Not interested in the car for myself, just sad to see it wasting away when I remember it as an up and running nice car.

Well the owner if he/she is still around should be traceable through the Reg number and DVLA I would have thought.
The black straps indicate it may have had a cover on it at some point.

I agree that is very sad to see it just languishing there and just needs someone with some time, and money, to give it some long term TLC.
Go on...you know you really want to own it! :D

DVLA will no longer release personal information.
Apart from, is it taxed, or has it got an MOT, they will not tell you anything unless you own the vehicle and even then very little, no history. Privacy rules you know!

I'd love to give that a home - looks like a faded Wedgwood Blue to me
