A mystery vehicle, all round. At least he can afford a new camera!

Not my brass, thankfully!

… I particularly like the radio in the glove box :-)

Alan

PS. It is slightly surprising that motor car passed an MoT test only 5 weeks ago….
... this one just sold for £1,505... spot on the price guide.

Another £5k no hoper on fleabay. In London, so probably a ULEZ casualty.

Nice enough but £5k, no!

The one? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Volvo-240...-127635-2958-0

… £5,000 is more than a little bit steep (IMHO).

I had a spare minute so I looked up the MoT history for A745XAM
VOLVO 240

Colour Brown
Fuel type Petrol
Date registered 1 January 1984
MOT expired on 30 September 2019

... so it has been off the road for 2 years. There is also a 10 year gap when the motor car was VOR from 2006 to 2016. It looks like the motor car has probably been sitting on the current owner's drive since he/she bought it in about 2016 as it has only been MoT tested once in that time.

I rather suspect the current owner bought it cheaply as a barn find or similar in 2016, got it through the MoT and has since parked it on the drive waiting for it to appreciate. Perhaps he/she intended to wait until it qualified for historic car status but got bored and couldn't wait another 4 years? Perhaps the ULEZ has made it impractical to keep now?

Anyway, there is a bit more to this than meets the eye, and it is not very good news. Is the motor car worth £5,000? Of course not - £2,500 would be fair.

Alan

PS. Date of last V5C (logbook) issued 10 February 2017

So far the sellers boat hasn't had much interest - but the seller has increased the start price to £300 - which is odd marketing :-)

Alan
The boat didn't get an opening bid at £300 - quelle surprise!

:-)

PS. The seller has re-advertised it and now claims it would make 'an ideal fishing boat or small houseboat'... one would have to like the outdoors a great deal to live on that!

The seller has done nothing to it - the motor car still has a rusty hole where the boot floor should be.

I still think it is worth less than a grand.

... and the nasty brown motor car is still for sale... quelle surprise!

The houseboat idea has merit! It might make a good basis for a ROOF!
