No, but that one is certainly a much more realistic estimate than that on 'Reg E's car, at a different auction and also on this forum.

How much did it go for? It looked like a good one.

Maybe an unrealistic reserve?... 14 years of unrecorded services (I may have misread it) and just because it has been in a film doesn't make up for that... unless it was graced by the bum of Angelina Jolie and then I might have happily bid on it myself

& before I get hammered for proxy upping my 240 which is in a similar forthcoming auction, it isn't my intention..what will be will be and mine has as good as no reserve...

I read somewhere that a potential buyer went to view it and it wouldn't start - d'oh!

If anything, being used in a TV series (and owned by the production firm) would be a negative for me as they would be happy just to make it presentable for the screen and sell it afterwards rather than a long term owner who took better care. We recently had an advert filmed in our road, set in the 70s and I was excited to see a Mini, Capri and Marina in the close, brought in by the producers. But close inspection revealed they were in pretty horrible re condition.
