Not heard of this online auction site before, but plenty of stock on there.

Nearly 300 photos of the car.

I do hope any Led Zep fans have a GOOD look at the 300 odd photos.

Will need a full restoration costing many tens of thousands.

I think this one is a gonner. Note it is only REPUTED to been owned by Bonham. Terrible waste of a previously reasonable car. If you could find some one to restore, and i don't think this is a home job, it would be at least 100K. Probably take 5 years or more......and a divorce.Kenny38 8)

Collecting cars is a good auction site, Chris Harris has something to do with it and they also do a podcast and Chris Harris hosts that too. Josh

Really like these online auction sites with their 100s of photos. Not sure I’m quite ready to buy a car without seeing it in the metal first though.

Couple of things here, Mists were the dealers that sold my car, and when I was a kid, late Seventies, we used to go to Spain with the family that lived in that house. I wasn't too sure who John Bonham was at the time, too interested in girls, especially the daughter who lived here, Susan was her name.
I wonder why he went to a dealer in the centre of Brum, when Newbury Motors in Halesowen is less than half the distance from him, and they were Jensen dealers too?
