Car had new floor pans, new wings, new front panel and rear panel. Paint job isnt the best and the car does need finishing. It is a small project for someone capable but is rock solid, unfortunately for me i cannot find reliable any trust worthy people to pay to do the work. Just constantly let down with it. 

Car has been owned by me for the last 6.5 years, since everything that has been so far from new, car has covered 18 miles. I am the 9th owner. 


I have put a lot of time and money into the car and have constantly been messed around and let down with it by people as i am no mechanic (i dont know exactly what work is required, however its all present and has been driven to a rolling road tuneup so im guessing needs very little mechanically etc) and had to try find reliable people to do the work. Which hasnt happened. Ive lost heart in it and it is causing me hassle i dont need now. 

£14500 no offers price is set firm

Im not looking to part exchange thank you as i wouldnt be selling this if i could find someone to actually do the work. its horrible having to sell it after the time ive owned it, but its doing my head in and causing rows at home with my wife as people constantly take the p**s out of me with it,  let me down and its on my in laws drive and they want it gone as well. 

No timewasters please. Car has an agreed value with insurance for £19000 (in current condition - photographs were requested by insurance company and sent to them and viewed by them before they agreed and issued the valuation certificate) 

Located in romford in essex.
