I shall now reveal myself as the buyer of two of them.


The one nearest my head is a 1972 Invacar on a K-plate, and is very sound in terms of bodywork. I'm thrilled to bits! The other is an AC (I think, no badge) on an M-plate, and will likely serve as a parts car. The body is very poor.

Next stage is to whisk them over to where I am in Wales. Can't wait to get started! My winter project.

Wow, that was a good deal.
Glad that it happened to you instead of me.
I would  be saddled with the non fixers forever, and have the City throwing  me in jail after levying heavy fines.
Hope you are in a better situation.
Don't let your better half read this post.
Good luck, and please don't use me as a reference model.
What are your plans?

Thank you, Steve.  Ten in total of which two are without a roof and all but 2-3 have pretty major body damage. A fuller assessment is yet to be done to see how bad they really are, and in all other departments.

Two-to-three others had been sold prior to my viewing and I'm hopeful we will hear from their new owner on here soon.

The eBay listing was effectively for all 13-14 cars for a £1k price tag - so a bit of a bargain was to be had (that's what I'm telling my better half!).

Congratulations!
I believed the picture to be real, but obviously not the car advertised.
How many did you get?
Anyone know exactly what the redundant piece of farm machinery's
exact function was?
It could be a fitting mounting for the AC as outdoor art work if the car is not much more than an unlikely to be restored shell.

Amazing car. I love that the guy had a photo album and showed photos of himself making the parts for it.

Looks like we are having a Model 70 (40 :) ) come back.

Always happy to help Mark, Thank you - What a find.

Steven - Barry's link was to an eBay listing (since removed) for a Model/s 70 up for sale.  I went to see what was on offer and made a purchase or several.

Whilst viewing the prospective purchases I came across a very unusual sight - the remains of a Model 70 atop a large and redundant item of farm machinery.  The Dropbox link in my post above is to said image. It is not photoshopped and the link shouldn't put anyone's device at risk of any infection, save possibly some sadness, shock and maybe a little amusement.

I also failed to adequately thank Barry previously so wanted to here.

I'm not falling for it, but what on Earth is going on here?

I sincerely doubt that this car ever had 4 wheels, although I do admit that it has some surprisingly well executed fabrication of a front fascia, rectangular headlight assembly, and good looking sculpted rubber surround at the single front wheeled end.
Obviously the folding top and supports are missing.
I'd like to see where they sprouted from.

Similarly would like a close up on the Tobrouk's spare wheel mounting.
The pictures I have seen of it are not well shot for determining this.  Could it really be off center enough to partially block the view of the right hand tail light?
