That is the problem. They seem not to have a great value making a full restoration unappealing unless you love the little chap. Years ago I would have bought but now, no way. Sad 'innit?

Seems a shame it it doesn't sell, and goes to scrap.
But it will need a load of work, and spares are most likley hard to get.

May be a good spares donor though if the reserve isn't too high.

Mine is the 1955 Lloyd LP400. I just hope that the 1957 model on ebay will find an enthusiastic collector prepared to bring it back to life. They were a bit like Meccano kits with all the panels still available from Germany. I find they look pretty with relatively large wheels for a microcar and a 'smiley face'. Unfortunately I am running out of space and time for another project.

It wouldn't go to scrap. What's it worth in scrap value? Not sure about england, but in France it would be worth maybe 50£.

Its already at 300£, even if reserve isnt met, I'm sure the seller would just accept that. Ebay usually shows the real value of things, so he probably wont get any more than it ends for on ebay.
