This is something of a pity - the motor car may well be a nice 144 but the seller isn't doing it any favours in representing it badly (he/she has just realised it is a manual, not an auto!), and shill bidding. I think prospective buyers will be put off (I would be).

Agreed, some folks canít be straight to save their lives!🤔

Some pictures have been posted !

Is there an incongruity between the interior and exterior, or is it just me?🤔

The exterior seems to be badly sun-faded Andrew whereas the interior isn't so bad, except for the carpet turning orange instead of red.

It's a fairly rough looking example with those red (wrong shade) painted wheels and no chrome centre caps, no real effort to make it look nice.


Just for fun, here's another similar car but looking better, at first glance at least :

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/203944176081

That one is definitely an auto!

I did say "at first glance" Andrew!

I did wonder about all the duct tape over the bonnet and boot outer edges, seem to recall they were very rust prone on my 140s many moons ago so maybe they've been taped up to hide the rust.

The over-sprayed red motor car made £2050.

That motor car made just £1,095 in the end - so there was some very obvious (and rather silly) shill bidding going on.
