All in the name of art!

Postby Owlsman » Sun Nov 03, 2019 12:48 pm

I'll freely admit to being a cynical old Philistine but surely it isn't just me:https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MORRIS-MINOR ... SwruldvpgF

There are some dreamers about, aren't there? I wouldn't mind so much but it's not even a complete half front-end :D .

Just on the off chance that you are prepared to have this piece of 'art' mounted on the turret of your west wing (subject to necessary planning consent of course) just be aware of the £95 delivery charge as well. I'm assuming you wouldn't want to collect it in person for risk of scuffing the back of the Range Rover :D

The vendor is presumably hoping that the fool who was soon parted from his money has since managed to acquire a little more, otherwise it's rather difficult to guess what he sees as his target market. 8)

A themed restaurant or bar somewhere might have bought it, if, as you say, it was complete and therein, I think, lies the flaw in his master plan to part said fool from his money................. :wink:

Talking of entertaining themed Minors:

Phew! It isn't just me then! :D

I don't thing even the tv programme 'Money for Nothing' could do much with that...…...even it was free!

Perhaps one might be able to ‘half open’ the half bonnet and find a half engine underneath? :D

I have ‘watched’ it in my epay, but only to give him hope that someone might be thinking of buying it! It does have a ‘make an offer’ option.... so someone local might make an offer for the bumper, or badge, or headlamp...

Any potential buyer might like to consider an equally distressed bonnet for £474, recently advertised.

This one will upset those interested in original ex-Police Minors....

:o :o :roll: :evil:

What a waste of a decent Minor!!
I notice the advertiser states that it is a paint product applied over the top of the original paint and that no actual damage has been done, as it would 'scrub' off with hot water and elbow grease...…………..
Which is exactly what I would do!!

The panels look to be in good order otherwise.
The interior looks good and it also still have the original headlining with the zip. There is one tear but this may be repairable or worth putting a tidy patch in, to save it.

If the price stays low it would be worth someone on here rescuing it, before it fall into the hands of real vandals...…….
Best wishes,
Mike.

Looks like it could be put back to normal quite easily :wink:
