It makes me cringe to see them like that. And then someone decides to try and sell it ? Ah well each to their own, it'd be a boring world if we all were the "same". I suppose .... :o

Bodywork maybe shot but there will be plenty of unobtainable engine , transmission and other spares , judging by the price of spares these days it would make sense to buy a car for spares ,

Glad it’s being sold without a V5. There are some interesting things for sale on the bay at the moment.
Mostly Mk1 & Mk2 Escorts, well, parts of them, but the selling point are VIN plates and a V5.

Like a car theft and ringing kit.

Surprised they can get away with it.

Nothing changes, I remember the cut off headstocks (with stamped VIN ) and V5for motorbikes being sold in the Eighties, perfect ringing kit.

I know, speaking personally I naively thought all this had "died out" when all the "records" were computerised. The tales of log books changing hands in smoke filled "tap" rooms on a Saturday night for a few "quid". To sum it up, as is sometimes said in Ford circles .... "There are more Lotus Cortinas on the road now, than they ever made .... "
