1 previous owner. Looks very solid, apart from a ding and some bolt-on rust.

17 bids from 10 bidders have taken it to £391.

Hmmm relisted by the same seller too. I wonder what happened to his buyer, just not turn up?

I did bid on this one, factoring in the cost of sorting the door ding and wing rot, got well outgunned.
I wonder what convinced the seller that a much higher price was needed to get it shifted?
I also wondered why the tailgate applique Tempest paint had seemingly weathered away without similar signs elsewhere.

Now 550, probably worth it without the bodywork damage.

Don't get on with those non adjustable drivers seats personally.

2nd time round on eBay, 14 bids from 8 bidders took it to £499. It seems a timewaster was the reason for relisting.

G332KAB is back on eBay again, now from Nuneaton. It's gained a childs' seat, and another 2k or so of mileage.
Couple of months short of its 28th birthday.

It's £800 BiN, or start bidding from £499.

Alternatively, on Car & Classic at £950 asking price.

What is the "tailgate applique Tempest paint"?

I can see that the boot floor around the spare seems to be very pink......

They've sprayed the tailgate plastic cover around the number plate with the same paint used to spray the lower half of the car, thinking this would be the right thing to do. Probably to cover up a badly faded panel. Looks horrible now. They were either trim-grey or black, not a dark glossy grey.

It's changing hands again on eBay! Now located Wakefield, and 55k.
Still looks basically solid, mercifully.
It's strange how it's avoided being cherished long-term, considering it changed hands at not-giveaway prices.
This time it's up only because the seller only had a change of heart regarding breaking it for the engine.
