Rare FF Mk3 going to auction

Post by Pymmie »

130/316 had been discovered in Sidmouth , Devon.

I believe it will be auctioned next month.

It may have been in its garage for 25 years ...

Looks very good with some nice body lines and when do you get the chance to buy a MK3 FF.

Will require a bit of recommissioning but it would be great to see it back on the road again.

Have spoken the the auctioneers who are Potburys of Sidmouth.

Will pop in and have a look hopefully next week.

Looking at mid September sale.

If anyone wants me to look at anything in particular just ask.

Will be sold as is, comes with Jensen hub puller

There's a MK3 FF going nowhere, after a full restoration at Cropredy some years ago.
It drove into the a warehouse and hasn't moved since.

Having seen the car it is mint, as it's in an all air conditioning area.
Only working half a day now.

Colin, are you referring to this car or to another Mk3 FF?

Having consulted Ulric Woodhams oracle, this car has been in Devon since September 1983 and the purchaser still owned the car in 1990 so you are probably right John - it has been in a garage for 25 years or so.

Thanks for info Helen.

The owner is still very much alive but elderly. Lots of people remember seeing it driving around East Devon.

Potburys will forward some more photos later this week.

On the light blue one in the picture above (not the one just found) the gap does not look even round the front corner.
