On UK Ebay with no reserve,

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/131567001154?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649...

Copied and Pasted description, note in Capitals.. so Not me shouting,


WELL WHAT DO I SAY, THIS IS A RARE IF NOT UNIQUE THING. IT'S REGISTERED AS A 1957, ESOTO FIRE SWEEP. APPARENTLY ONLY 2 WHERE EVER BOUGHT INTO BRITIAN BUT I DON'T KNOW HOW TRUE THAT IS, I DON'T THINK THERE ARE VERY COMMON IN AMERICA EITHER??

IT IS VERY SOLID BUT AND THERE IS A BIG BUT, SOMEONE DECIDED IT WAS A GOOD IDEA TO PUT A 2.3 DIESEL SIERRA ENGINE AND GEARBOX IN IT, MAYBE 20 YEARS AGO IT WAS! BUT DEFINATLEY NOT NOW. ENGINE STARTS, RUNS AND SOUNDS FINE BUT IT DOESN'T PULLTHE CAR ALONG THAT GREAT. I DO HAVE A 5.7 V8 ENGINE AND GEARBOX AVAILABLE IF YOU WISH. THE CAR IS LIKE I SAY UNBELIEVABLEY SOLID BUT OBVIOUSLY WANTS RESTORING.

IT HAS THE WRONG SEATS IN IT BUT I DO HAVE THE ORIGINAL FRAMES ALTHOUGH THEY WANT RE-DOING. IT IS A STARTING, RIDING AND DRIVING PROJECT. IT IS MOT EXCEPMT, TAX EXCEMPT AND SEAT BELT EXCEMPT. IT'S MORE OR LESS ABOVE THE LAW. IT IS A 60 YEAR OLD PROJECT BUT WHAT A PROJECT.

WHAT DO I SAY, IT'S A RARE, RARE CAR, MORE ROCK N ROLL THEN AN ELVIS CONVENTION. ANY QUESTIONS YOU CAN RING 07541 196633 OR EMAIL AND I WILL TRY TO ANSWER A.S.A.P. ALL LOW (BELOW 20 GOOD FEEDBACK) OR ZERO RATED BIDDERS MUST CONTACT FIRST VIA EMAIL BEFORE PLACING A BID OR YOUR BID WILL BE RETRACTED AND BLOCKED.

THIS MUST BE PAID FOR AND COLLECTED WITHIN 3 DAYS OF THE AUCTION ENDING.
