needed with Woodcote Green 1867
As a sequel to David Batten's useful report on RV8 auctions in Japan,
Fred Jenns of Classic and Sportscar Consultants has sent in some photos
of an RV8 seen at auction in Japan recently. (16.6.07)
Fred says "I have only just spotted the new RV8 auction report
from Tokyo. If you want evidence of impending lunacy, we watched Woodcote
Green 1867 sell this week for JPY 2.18m (GBP9,276)!!
Looking through the photographs you can see a badly rusted windscreen
frame, damaged dash top roll (toll reader stuck in place), poor alloy
wheels, needs new tyres, damaged hood, damaged trim, needs paint on
bonnet and nearside door, scruffy engine with engine ancillary noise
(alternator bearing perhaps) and incomplete tool roll - all of which
rather undermined the claimed low mileage. Continued . . .

will need refurbishing
Note: FX rate JPY/GBP
@ 235 has been used for the FX conversions above
needs some attention
with engine ancillary noise - an alternator bearing perhaps?
Damage to the
Soiled nearside carpets
top roll - toll reader stuck in place
don't know where this car is destined, but if someone has bought
it from description alone, then they might be a bit disappointed!"
