Damask 1475 has appeared yet again, this time listed as a "late entry" with a "trade status" for auction at Dorset Vintage & Classic Auctions (DVCA) at Stalbridge in Dorset on Thursday 8th June 2017. The online details say "the V8 sits on its original road wheels and is described by its current custodian as good in most departments, although we are informed that the chrome bumpers are showing some signs of corrosion. A change of circumstances forces the very reluctant sale of this desirable motor car. The large history file supplied contains the V5C registration certificate, a BMIHT certificate, invoices and a quantity of MOT test certificates dating back to 1987". Bidders might wish to visit the GOV.UK website and checkout the MOT history and also make an inspection of the car. This is the fourth time this car has been offered for sale in 12 months. Seems there was no result at the auction on 8th June 2017

Damask 1475 was reported as sold by the Scottish auctioneer Morris Leslie on 21st May 2016 for £15,032 against a reserve of £10,000. We believe that price included the buyer's premium. 160521

This V8 was previously registered on the V8 Database by a member in Norfolk. It has internal trim upgrades.
