    Default #031 Accident damaged for sale at Coparts, Bristol.

    Damaged, "Repairable structural", it says. Big fat question mark on that, I would suggest!

    Blimey that has taken a bit of a shunt.. with the angle of the crash bar, engine and popped window etc, I would suspect there is also a fair bit of hidden damage.

    I am not sure that is coming back to life.

    Nice big bump under the rear seat squab ?? Rear wheel positions suspect etc. Breaker only, surely? Current "bid" at 425.

    Hopefully the driver was not hurt.

    At this price it is probably worth buying just for the spares. I suspect it might go up from this.

    With that heavy a frontal impact it has probably hit the engine but hopefully not damaged it.

    Yes I noticed. I was tempted while it was under 1000 but I am finding it difficult to justify now.

    Hopefully who ever buys will part it out so we can all benefit.

    Wow, that is more than I thought it would go for. I wonder what the new owner plans to do with it?
