I understand Chris but at that £ risk?
If that sold at guide it would have been great value, but I expect it will have been somewhat more.
Cars are for using in my book, whatever the price.
Nothing worse than cars salted away as investments and not used for fear of what may happen.
The beauty of that 356 was that it had FIVA papers and could be used on classic rallies straight away.
Only the same price as the nicest road going 240Z ?
I can point you to a nice original 240Z HLS30 that sold for $72.5k last week in the States and I have one the equal of that car, it doesn't stop me from driving it flat out everywhere when possible and using it as it was intended.
So anyway the website states that your Porsche sold for £69,750 and my Datsun for £28,125.
The 240Z was definitely not there, admin error ?
Looks like they maybe listed the price it made last time it sold at Race Retro ?
£27k for the Mk1 Golf GTI
There were quite a few guys around that car when we viewed and all seemed to think it was expensive even at the lowest estimate of £17k, especially as the auctioneers used weasel words on the mileage 'indicated' 53k miles (not actual or guaranteed) which was a little odd considering only one owner from new.
Nice car though either way and would be hard to find another in such great original condition. Remember this was generally considered the first of the hot hatch genre (to those people conveniently ignoring the R5 Gordini) and this was the car most young guys aspired to back in the day.
