Sit on 'till the spring, nothing is selling at the moment. I am 'watching' some items on Ebay and there is no movement. It is too soon after holiday period (people are skint) and too near potential Brexit crash out (afraid they might be more skint).
£90 is criminally low, one day people will be searching everywhere for a decent Busso block. Try calling Alex Jupe.
Thanks, yeah, inevitably that'll happen at some time, but then that always happens with stuff for classic cars. Either you send an 'old heap' which nobody is interested in to the scrappy 6 months before they're 'discovered' in a classic car mag and become worth £10k, or you bin a load of old switches days before some desperate restorer on Ebay spends a fortune on them, and end up scrabbling through the bin to rescue 'em
I think you're right about the skintness thing but sales of Busso bits and bobs have been slow for quite a while now; maybe the whole dieselgate scandal and the threat of forcing us all to use EVs is putting people off doing fresh restorations. Well, either that or the pot of unrestored-but-rescuable 116 series / 164s is now so small there are none left to fix...
Either way, the current situation has meant I've got some good bargains over the past year, which has allowed me to do some interesting research (e.g. my comparing busso internals thread). And since I'm skint too I'm quite happy with the current situation, and more than happy to pass this part of one of my bargains onto someone else for a low price if they want it.
Does Alex Jupe have an email address perchance?
