If you're seriously interested in buying a car off eBay I'd recommend going to see it first. That way you can ask if there's a reserve and maybe if it's for sale elsewhere and buy through that advert. Saves the seller commission....  Wink

There is a number plate inside the car which looks like TFR 40J or 43J or even 143J i've just tried them all in a vehicle check and nothing is coming up. I remember dvla used to apply current registration numbers to imported vehicles before they changed to age related so if it was imported in 1971 they would issue a H or J plate, just a thought although as Brian said, it does look like alot of work and probably only worth using for those rare parts?

These are very classy cars and their value will rise over the next few years.  To put it in perspective, a steering wheel from a Touring Flaminia (like the one in this car) sold for 800 euros on Italian ebay not so long ago.  Restoration will certainly be a massive task but if done well, the car will be worth around 30k when finished.  I would say that in this condition it is still cheap at 1,700.

That sums it up though. A steering wheel at 800 euros. No way that can be restored and be "in credit".

If you look closely at the picture of the "interior" there's a rear number plate in the pile which might give a clue to previous ownership and allow the new owner to obtain a log book? (TRF?48J)Still probably a labour of love but I hope that posts hinting at the steering wheel being worth 800 don't tempt anyone to buy this car with a view to breaking for profit...

I'm buying a lottery ticket this weekend. Keep you fingers crossed, it's for a good cause. ('cause I'd love it! Grin)

  I sincerely hope that my comments do no encourage that kind of vandalism.  Surely this forum is frequented by enthusiasts.  Incidentally, there is a touring Flaminia or sale at "The Gallery" - http://www.thegallerybrummen.nl/en_EN/autobedrijf/collectie/2892339/details.html - 61,500 euros - but their prices are always very high - and there are a couple of photos of the car undergoing restoration which may be of interest.

Bidding is up to 6000 - that seems quite a lot for a car in this condition?

It sold for 6,000, a very good price for the seller for a car with so much missing and the wrong engine!

sold for 6 then.if the buyer has some surplus spares and  for this model already and other resources i suppose it is a reasonable buy[was it ever going to go for much less?i expect i will be put right on that question].hopefully the buyer has had a good look at his /her new purchase and has things under control.after all if the[wrong] engine/box etc can be made to work without any major costs that could save what could have been a bill equal to the purchase price+more i suppose.work to be done.i hope to see the progress if it is now in the LMC-or perhaps it will end up at a dealers if there is any markup worth having.best regards richard
