If you spot a brilliant car - of any type - on ebay or other boards feel free to add a link to it here, £1k or £100k, if it's a cool car share it.
Not a place to lazily link to your own ebay listings.

That looks very interesting and I like the way it looks now, I would take it to shows just how it is, who needs shiny paint work when you have that under the bonnet!

I thought it would still need to MOTed as the engine and running gear are very different from the original factory specs and the ad states it MOT free?

"Yes it is fast, yes it is MOT exempt and yes it doesn't require tax."

From the GOV web site.

"Vehicles that do not need an MOT
You do not need to get an MOT if:

the vehicle was built or first registered more than 40 years ago
no ‘substantial changes’ have been made to the vehicle in the last 30 years, for example replacing the chassis, body, axles or engine to change the way the vehicle works"

It's still listed as a 1800cc car and MOT ran out in April 2018..... looks like the log book has not been changed either.... :? :? :?

Nothing a bit of paper work and an MOT would make it road legal, I say do it and drive the thing... boy would I love a go in that car..... 8-) :-D
