Vin plate, Nunber Plate and V5 for sale !!

Postby Owlsman » Sat Jan 12, 2019 2:29 pm

I may just be incredibly naïve but why would these items be for sale? Item no. 132916290623 on eBay. (Sorry, I've not yet fathomed out how to create a direct 'link' to another website page).

What possible interest could they be to anyone, except for nefarious purposes? And at £200!!! Or am I just genuinely missing something?

Please note: Any replies may be automatically redirected to any one of my secret Swiss bank accounts or off-shore companies in the Cayman Islands. :D

Allegedly for sale for memorabilia like all the other old style log books. If you believe that your'e believe anything.

Strange. If you look at the seller's feedback, the last thing he sold was this car - or at least the body of it :-?

Guy inspects a Minor with a view to buying it, looks at the body number...says to himself, THAT'S a bit iffy, & the engine number is WAY out.....upon detecting his doubt, the vendor becomes a bit nervous and short tempered..."got a few more people interested in it...", or "it's bound to have a different engine in it, mate, it's 50 years old", or the classic, & my personal favourite, "it says it's green on the log book...but as you can see, it was originally blue..."

By the time the vendor says "I'm willing to take offers...🤣...", the prospective buyer has climbed into his car & driven off......

Moral of the story(?)....don't open your wallet until you're 100%....
Further investigations uncovered it was an inside job!!

Anyone else notice the blue 1958 pickup currently on eBay......a BARGAIN!!

Overlook the later features, 1098cc engine, LCV chassis & VIN which id's it as a 4dr saloon...no doubt some idiot will buy it🤣

That'll be the one with tandem wipers, fresh air inlet heater and toggle switch dashboard then? A friend whos looking for a pickup had already drawn my attention to it. Guess it could have been rebuilt with a 'doner' cab...

To be fair, he does state that is not the original body......
