Private sale - reimported RV8 in Woodcote Green - N676 HVX
1995 build reimported to UK in 2000 via New Zealand in very good condition. Taxed and on the road ever since I purchased it, but never in wet or salty conditions, hence 58,700 miles (plus 14,000 km on reimport). It comes with full-service history during my ownership, with some from beforehand. During my ownership the windscreen surround has been replaced, all veneers redone, aircon removed, new bump stops and adjustable Spax shock absorbers, and a complete Wax-Oil, mostly by Clive Wheatley. Many other improvements - high torque starter & catalytic converters and new hood fitted since last used. Serviced & checked plus an oil change at every MOT. Has been a very reliable car always started and driven like it should, with many enjoyable miles covered but sadly now age dictates a more sedate mode of transport. The car comes with a luggage rack, full tonneau and wind stop, many documents and a workshop manual, plus new spare wheel and a full tool kit. MOT from January 2023. £20,500. 221222 Photos

Private sale - MG RV8 P494 WMJ
Woodcote Green 2150
, full service history covering the last 20 years. Bought last year from top MG specialist Brown and Gammons, which serviced the car for many years but space (and funds) now needed to restore a J-type MG. It has been scrupulously cared for and updated, and has a top-class paint job and much of the trim has been renewed as has the hood. Being Japanese spec, it also has fully working air conditioning (essential at the moment). Total mileage according to Brown and Gammons is 71,000 miles but it’s looks almost like new under the bonnet. The MGCC history folder has MOT certificates from 2002 plus receipts for power-steering, Spax shockers, catalytic converters, stainless steel exhaust, ECU chip, spot lights, Sony radio, immobiliser, wind deflector and much more. I am in the process of acquiring a ‘basket case’ 1932 MG J-type which will require all my time, funds and workshop space – hence the sale. £19,750. 220807 Photos

The three "Ws" are excellent: wood (recently professionally refurbished), wheels (recently refurbished and sold with car but not currently on the car) and windscreen frame. The car benefits from Hoyle independent fully adjustable rear suspension (with disc brakes) and Hoyle front suspension. These suspension upgrades cost over £7,000 and have transformed the car's handling. The car also has fully adjustable electric power steering which enhances driving and makes parking and manoeuvring at low speeds a joy. The interior is in very good condition and the hood is almost new. The car comes with a modern Kenwood stereo and amplifier and the air conditioning unit blows ice cold air. The car has been regularly serviced and is a superb example in Oxford Blue. It is a great car to drive, especially with the sensible suspension and power steering upgrades. Included in the sale are the 17 inch Team Dynamics wheels in the photos (specially ordered by me) but also the original refurbished factory wheels (no tyres), a space saver wheel, unique number plate, original toolkit and half tonneau. The car has a valid MOT until 26th April 2021. No advisories. £26,500 . 200530 & update 200605

Extras include a Clive Wheatley Perspex windstop, new logo floor mats together with the Clive Wheatley upgraded Spax gas shock absorbers all round. Fitted Toyo Proxes tyres give a much softer ride and are in excellent condition all round. Car has been serviced and maintained by Beech Hill with a service history. MOT until April 2020.

Beware of scam from an overseas V8 buyer!
Rick Morton (Woodcote Green 1300) has reported a scam which members who are selling a V8 need to note. Rick says "I just thought I would update you on my experience with trying to sell my RV8 recently before I withdrew it from sale. Both Jerry Winfield (Woodcote Green 1684) and I heard from the same person but I also had several other emails with roughly the same approach." How does the scam work? "This person, who is overseas, agrees to buy your car and will send you a cheque for more than the asking price to cover shipping costs etc. He then asks if you could bank the cheque and send the balance to his shipping agent via a money transfer. The cheque bounces but only after you have sent the cash to the shipping agent. This scam relies on your ignorance of how the cheque clearing system works. Problems arise because banks update their computers on day three of the clearing cycle. So if you check with them at that time, you may very well be told that the funds are available. It will only be on day four that the bank realises that there is a problem, and on day five that they tell you. Weekends and Bank Holidays all add to the delay. In my case the scam merchant was going to send me a cheque for £3,400 more than I was asking for the car. I was to subtract the cost of the car and send the remainder to his "shipping agent"." So members advertising here need to be alert to this scam and any approach from the scam merchant!
