If it really does run, if the brakes really have been sorted, if the interior really is all there and the chrome is livable then the rest is "only paint and metal" - as such the prospect is no worse than ANY other classic car BUT the result is one of the finest cars ever made there to give you elegant and rewarding service until the very end of time.  Should you ever need to let it go it stands a better chance of paying you back for your troubles than just about any other classic AS LONG AS the mechanicals, interior, and trim are AOK.

...or if its all too much time and trouble buy a mint HF2000 or Appia depending if the way it goes or the way it feels are more important...

If the little devil on your shoulder is saying "accept no substitute" just start looking at every example, for sale or otherwise, and eventually you'll just know it instinctively when the "one for you" pops out of the woodwork.

Well I'm confused now too!  If it is for sale, has a valid V5 and the owner is asking 3,500 for it you should have snatched his hand off before telling anyone else about it. I was under the impression it was for sale at 14K.
The last Flaminia Touring to sell at auction needing restoration (without running engine) and it was a less desireable GTL went for 11K!!
...............who did you say was selling it?Huh?Huh?Huh??

It isn't advertised. I came to know of it in a roundabout way......... I imagine I should be snapping his arm off!

Is it any more complicated to sort the body (sills and floors) if the panels (presumably above that level) are alloy on frames?

I don't want to discourage - sounds like the bargain of the week.

An alloy bodied car is a step up in magnitude of complexity compared to a fully steel bodied vehicle. The trouble is it is very difficult not to get involved with the bodywork if you need to replace complete sills. Usually the entire structure up to the waistline will be shot through with rust.

You will need to cut the alloy sill panel below the door as this just covers the structural bits to properly weld the sills as the structure is quite complex, so you will need to be friendly with an alloy welder to do the job correctly.

Have you bought it yet Lindsay?

Not yet. It is quite daunting but at the price...... no rush as its not on the market as such. Will contact the chap this week and go from there. In the meantime, anyone want to buy a good 2000 Coupe and spares 2000HF coupe!
