these "barn finds" seem so much more expensive than a "lock-up find" :D

(much like free range/barn eggs are to "battery" eggs?)

White Mono cars should be worth more imho :D

In all seriousness he's selling it on it's originality and the first thing that jumps out at me is no Chapman steering wheel? :roll:

Obviously not a 32k car. Hate to think what the rest is like if it's been so badly stored.

You can buy a nice 1962 TR3 for the same price; who needs handling!

Bargain!!! According to Mr Matty thats a £48k car https://paulmattysportscars.co.uk/lotus ... int-fhc-2/

I can only imagine the white car is priced that high to get people on Forums talking about it and doing his advertising for him :P that is unless he's taken a visit to Mr Matty to weigh up prices.

That said White is obviously the best colour for a Sprint :lol:

Tawny has to be the best colour. Here's mine (models not included). Look close enough and you will notice the headlights were still raising in the first photo.

So i have to ask - how come you had your car in the grounds of Buckingham Palace?

I also assume you closely inspected those models to make sure that all areas of contact had nothing that could scratch the paint?
