Not much info on this one, and the pictures are rubbish.

Whats the betting that the reserve is over a grand? Personally i think that without an MOT, and without it being 'on the road', you shouldn't expect much more than £500 for any viva, Brabhams, GTs, and nose-coned varieties excluded obviously.
I had a small chat with the guy who was selling the white HB that needed doors and wings plus a good amount of other work, he wanted no less than a grand, I explained the wing situation and how that affects the prices of HBs but he was still adamant it was worth £1000 at least. Why? Because good clean examples of viva are being advertised for anywhere between 4-6K. They are not selling for that money, but people see them advertised for that and think they are worth that. I can think of two good examples that have recently sold for what I would think was a reasonable amount, only to be stuck back up for sale with an over-inflated price by the new owner who thinks he can make a mint without doing any work to either one. This makes people think that their 'rot-box' is worth a mint, and this sort of selling will eventually affect the values of our vehicles adversely, either by pricing the vehicles and parts way out of anyones price range effectively making the humble viva unrestorable to the average enthusiast, or by the bottom falling out of the market and we are back to viva's being given away ( which suits me ha ha :D , I miss the days of a free viva being offered :D :D :D ). Either way, These unrealistic prices will eventually harm the viva scene in some way or another I believe. . . . I'm probably wrong, my 'human nature' radar has been off for a few years, people invariably do things that surprise me . . .
