Merc - Spider

Went to look at a spider ....

Went to look at this spider today....


well ...shock horror... supposed to have a FSH...had a book that was stamped no paperwork couple of ***** then indy... a few bills for tyres a few old MOTs. one invoice for discs in 08.

The cars hood wouldnt go up or down, and her hubby had tried to fix it pulled it to bits and lost some of the parts including the drive wheel from the motor..(he was trying to fix it). No indication of belts being done...ever...rear window torn with tape on it body work ok..but big crease in ns rear that i presume you cant get out..

Engine was a bit rattley... she wouldnt let me drive it out of the yard as it had no TAX..and wasnt insured...

will people just buy a car of ebay without going seeing it? ... like this .

This would need in excess of 800 to get anywhere near roadworthy never mind decent.

4 **** tyres, back box needs replacing, badly sprayed scrape on front. sticking passenger window...

In parts its easily worth a couple a grand.

I know that you have been over this before but! you will seldom get a mint GTV/Spider on ebay as the mint ones are sold here or in specialist dealers such as Clive's and they still command a premium.

Its a sub 1k Spider advertised as Spares/Repair and seems to be as such.

Im not quite sure what you were expecting?

If you want a decent Spider that isnt likely to cost you any more money in the near future go and spend 3-4k, not 600 quid.

Lukather, Am I missing something has the advert changed since you viewed the car, you have listed the faults that it says on the advert....???? If you want cheap you will get a less than mint car.

Come down to London and view mine - if you are not happy with the condition I will give you 20 toward the cost of your train fare.

At the very least it's a day out for you (and a day off for your family ;-)

NB. I need to know your expectations regarding condition first...
