£5k and 8 days left... Have any of these "bidders" actually had a look at it!
John Morland show mike
Your not going to spend anything over a grand without going and inspecting it first, especially when the photos aren’t great.
I know for a set of solid doors and boot for one of these. Looking to sell
Mk1 GTE's are getting rare........ i recently saw a rotten one go for £4k so i'm not shocked by the price....... TBH i's always had a soft spot for one of these.
Rags thrown over it to make it look like a barn find.
Can't even put decent in depth photos for serious money
5k for that. depends what the car was like. hope buyer not buying a rusty car.
Marcus want to do something stupid again? Lol
Without looking at it? I don’t think so but right car.
ahhh! happy days
Paul check , I want one
A had a white one 👍

My old one 😜
There were only 50 of these Avon sunbeams made.
Very rare Avon Sunbeam Lotus. Twin cam no tappets and nothing like a solara
Can hear the tappets from here
Should have left it in the barn.
Great car in its day shame it was built-in Glasgow and parked in a field next to factory to help with floor rust 😶😶
I found one for my sister for her first car, not the Lotus version but it was in a lovely caramel colour mmmmm
Was in one a few times. A road rocket that could spin the wheels in the first three gears in the wet
Had a ride in one of these Avon’s when new.It was a very fast shed at the time.Loved it !!!
my first car was a v reg sunbeam a whole 928cc's of mayhem haha,loved it and i think the police did also as had many a chat with them hehe
Didn't think Lotus Sunbeams had sun roofs.Does that mean you can't rally it?
I workes on one of there years ago or was it talbet salar is it .something like that to do the clutch on these you had to access it from passengers side wheel arch .. it was a right ball ache
Ground the valves in on my old Talbot at least once every couple of months 😂
I remember these in the day.... With a few tweaks they were quite cheeky!
Boy.s in our old scapy. Year.s ago had one in black had twin deck 40.s fast b......d.
@LesTurner Remember my Sunbeam... Haha great days!
They used to wheel spin in first to third no problem
Kerry Coate-Bond another one for your collection! 😃
European Gremlin hehe but cool,why not?
Had one back in the day
Speed machines they were
Jordan Davies this is the hot hatch king bud 🙂
Mark Bliss you looking for another one you can push up and down the road when it doesn't start ? 😝

Anyone else watch programmes like Wheeler Dealers and type the reg numbers of the cars into an app like Vehicle Smart to see if they’re still on the road? 😂
This was the VW Beetle that was on today.
UK Barn Finds ... See MoreSee Less
I do the same watching re-runs of the sweeney..... Form an orderly queue ladies
I reg check pretty much any car interesting. Love to look at the M.O.T history & mileage etc. pretty sad to be honest do love it tho lol
Here's a difficult one.....Sold m'y splitscreen Devon camper 25 years ago , 9161 kp.....NOW the plate is on a porsche 911 , I don't have any record of chassis number how do I find out if my van is still about
Didn't the bay window camper they did catch fire?
Want to find one of my old cars, it's still registered with DVLA but not been taxed since 86 four years after i sold it ?,
Wheeler dealers most cars are scrap now or had a reg change lol
Used to, but laziness has stopped me.
i got that app very useful.
Do it all the time my lass thinks am weird
I did that hideous black/blue Range Rover they painted white and it’s no longer registered
It might've been mentioned already but I looked that up a while back and looking at the MOT history, it failed pretty brutally on the subsequent MOT after being wheeler dealed...
I do it all the time even on coronation street 😂😂😂
Do it all the time when watching any tv... if a decent car comes up..just to see if it's real or not.
ive done it when we have found burnt out shells of cars in woods and bumpers been ragged off first.
I saw the new one with the 1982 supra. Exactly the same colour as mine I owned early 90s..... Could’ve cried when I heard the engine and saw the tailgate. It sounded crap and the back looked grim. America messed up a fantastic car, even put a catalytic converter on it, reduced power from 170 to 145 bhp. Real shame.....
I do that. Did it for the Morris Minor in open all hours and the Ford Granada estate in the omen and the Beetle from the front cover of Abbey Road . I do it for my old cars too and others that catch my eye.
I used that site when I bought a second hand trailer and it had two registration numbers under the outer one. One came out at a Citroen BX and the other was a Volvo 740. Looked like they had been there from the time those cars were first produced. 😂
Too addicted to that 😂 any interesting car I'll check it's mot history, just out of interest. Especially old TV shows and films. Quite sad watching something from like 2001 and every car in it is gone.
Yep tv and film it's a sad past time 😂😂😂
Yup, guilty as charged. Everything...random numbers written on envelopes, bills, bank statements etc round my laptop...
Yeah done that with the Sweeney vehicles and Cowley red Granada is on there👍👍
I’ve seen a few that are off the road after a year or so.
Yep do it all the time, also check the mileage too
All the time. Need to clear history regularly 😁
Yes. I sometimes do. Surprising how many are not registered any more.
So much better than xr3i
My absolute fave mk3 escort
They should remake these with new technology
That's not the one from Car SOS is it?
Ride quality was atrocious on these but they did handle well I had a white one and swapped it for a mk1 golf gti campaign Was like going from night to day for build quality , handling and performance !! The golf destroyed the escort
Just sold mine for £10k in mint condition full mot and 67k miles. People need to be realistic with prices.
Wrong steering wheel wish I had not sold mine 😞
Try getting in the back...those seats where comfortable... But if you where over 7 stone you can't get in the back....just as well I liked skinny chicks 😉
Bit like this one. Same with motorbike wish never sold that either grrrrrrrr.
Yes bro if it's the real deal
Scott Martindale seen this a million times I bet lol
I had a mk1 xr2 back in the day similar plate. Mine was chd730y. I wonder if they came from same garage new.
Had one and it was reliable
Nice had the xr 3 I in red she was 👌
Stephanie Bellend for our col 👍
Always liked these....especially in white.
Had 4 of them great car's
Class beautiful ❤️
Awww I miss mine 😢
Wayne Paul Mcgurk can you remember this
James Osborn Ozzy, geezer wants 12k. U gotta be over 15k for ur's now 👌
Apart from the grille and rear lights what was the difference between the Cambridge and the Oxford?
I used to have a Morris Oxford - one of the most comfortable cars I've had and the leather front bench seat was great!
We had one of these throughout my childhood, grey Cambridge , couldn't tell you the no of the car I drive now but the Austin was 392 GUY
Astonishingly these relics were sold until 1971. Imagine the dynamics of one versus a Mk3 Cortina 😂😂😂 you see why BL went bust...
My dad had a grey one when I was a kid. VBK 209
Looks like this one from the Italian Job!
Had a Riley 4/72 which was top of the range. Twin carbs 72bhp as opposed to 60bhp for the rest of the range apart from the MG Magnette which was 72 too
Smashed up a few on the banger racing circuits years ago, plus a few Rover Chieftans and 1 Humber Pullman, did not realise then that they could go onto live long lives. But they all went down fighting
My DaD had one remember him coming home on the day he got it.brand new.it was two tone grey with red seats lovely car.
Don't forget that they were the family car of the well off I worked on these cars and many others of this period the Japanese cars were just beginning to take hold of the car industry and the British Car industry dragged THEIR feet with nothing to compete with only the Mini was doing well. But nice to see that these 70,s cars do turn up now and then.I had an Austin A35 van for 16 yrs and she never let me down.
I had the Oxford traveller back in the sixties, reg no-JWX 198 D, two tone , green and cream, front bench leather seat, petrol about 2 and 6 a gallon (12& 1/2 pence in today's money), those where the days. Lol
Our neighbours had one in the mid 70’s. rotten as a pear. When the scrap man tried to lift it off the street it folded in the middle. Still like them though.😄
Let's hope that this car falls in to the hands of a genuine enthusiast who will restore and cherish it and not the Banger racing fraternity who seek to destroy our motoring heritage.
My grandfather had one of these. Good plate for a boxer. Or Senior Nurse Practitioner.
This reminds me of better years, our family car for years in the sixties early seventies great memories ❤️😃👍
£1.4shillings and 9pence for 5 gallons of petrol. Thoe werw the days. Cheapest I ever remember buying would have been in 1975. 37.5 new pence at the cash and carry where I worked
I had a Black Austin Cambridge, it was 6 yrs old when I bought it with 62k on the clock. Suspension was crap and felt like driving a water bed. Front shocks wore out very quickly. A 6yr old car today still looks good, even some 15yr old cars can look very fresh but this was BMC at it’s worst. Bad cars and lost value like a man with no parachute jumping off the Empire State Building.
Had about 3 of these and when the battery was flat you could use the starting Handel to get her going comfortable ride too
Assembling the screen with mouldings on a bench then pulling it in with a cord was an art.
My father had a Wolseley 6/110 ex Police Car, Fab motor...
A nice little project for someone , I used to have one in black with red interior , got it for my 21st .
My first car. An oxford estate I had. £100 cash. Insurance was £100 also too. Big bench front seat. Starting handle. Went around bends like a aircraft carrier. But I loved it.
Remember washing one every Sunday morning for sixpence in late 60s early 70s and a trip to the paper shop.
That was when British cars were best sellers.people want German cars now.its was under BMC till 1969.
Had the oxford and wolsey of these both underpowered for the weight of them , when loaded hills were not good

Only someone who's had a (botched) frontal lobotomy would want to take that on....
£846 for a project which needs shed load of money spent on it. i think its £846 of scrap metal. thats how i see it.
Must be hiding behind the load of scrap in the photo.?
We'll past any kind of ecconominal restoration. Better off buying one with bodywork issues sorted,or at least minimal.
Just get it taken for scrap.
It's getting silly now isn't it?
So, what exactly are we looking at here?
This yours David Smith lol

Lilian Rosborough i want
To be fair that IS less smoke than usually comes out of those hateful cars 😛
Davie Cameron new project for ya
Hope they took out the fuel tank!
Never seen smoke coming from the front of one of them before only the rear 😂
It'd look more realistic with the flames and smoke if the back end was used as a BBQ! 😂😂
Anthony Cobb we need this out back in summer

Margaret Milne a taxi at last
I can hear the rattling tappets from here 😂
that fker wants burnin
Funny because thats how I remember them in the 80's on the back of a wagon 😂😂
Nobody wanted one when they were new. There’s no hope of finding someone who wants to restore it!
Paul Betesta- this is for you
Interesting typical 80' must be rare today..good Project for someone
Jo Ann Thornton I think you should buy this ha then u will have two of them... Do it do it x 😂😂😂
I remember drilling the wheel arch panel to take the cam shaft out of one instead of taking the engine out🤣🤣🤣🤣
you might want to push that back into the barn
I thought I told you to scrap this in your last post
I used to take these in part exchange and call the scrap man straight away. I think I still would 💩
Utter shite..get it turned into razor blades.
I had a yellow one in the 80,s, it was total crap, got rid quickly.
Now do it
To be fair I don't remember them all braking down, compared to what was around at the time they were far better than a lot of cars, engine was quite revvy.
Shame it wasn't the sx auto model would of had it.
Bung an hdi diesel in it, and there's the future!
Blair Allan. Another quality motor from the past. Talbot !!??
I would give £200 for that in the morning.
Another shitbox for Mark, Sally Hills Cooper

WTF !!! Pile of rusty scrap Someone is gonna loose their motor for the vin 😡 They were shite in the day Had four mk2s All rotten Spent my life welding the friggin things Mk1s weren’t any better That why everyone called them Dagenham dustbins ! If you drove one down the road it still only an ‘escort’ One rallying/hot ones we’re the only ones to get exited over Crush it
all you need is some petrol..... and a match
Someones mint condition 1600 sport is going to suddenly appear with this identity very soon most likely 🤔 🚓🚓🚓🚓🚓🚓🚓🚓🚓🚓🚓
what the--- 807 pounds ????? come on get serious, its scrap. whats amazing is it has 9 bids ???
Log book and chassis number allows you to ring someone else’s stolen motor. That’s why it’s selling for strong money.
Whoa that's my escort I took it down to Brighton for the day parked it on the seafront and that's what I came back to. Do you think my ziebart warranty is still valid.
The floating headlamp deserves a medal for perseverance though.
Any vehicle that has been off the road for a long period of time should have to prove it's the original rebuilt ie photos, receipts ect
I'd buy it for bits to keep others going but not for that money.
Bloody scrap it look at the state of it looks like it’s just been pulled out the sea do something useful with it and turn it into a baked bean can
scrap, should not be allowed to be sold with a vin
26062 miles...in a salt mine. Utterly rotten, smashed up the back end. What’s wrong with people 🙄?
£807 for a rusty piece of metal. honestly its just scrap nothing else. be lucky if the buyer used it for parts.
The whole ad stinks but singing for the right person "Might be useful to someone 😎" on the end of listing.
Hasn't this one been on Facebook before? I seem to recognise that 'C' pillar.
Wonder how much this piece of crap will go for? 🤔
After watching Quest Channel, Goblin garage, £850 for wings and front balance,
Ian Law perfect car for you.... 😂
the best bit of this advert is the sticker that says "guaranteed corrosion protection"
Where exactly is the Escort?
Might as well list it as an ford escort theft kit
It's a pile of shite, scrap it... Chancers😠
This svrapper has been knocking around for a while hardly worth the effort and money for it forget it
Carl Metcalfe another one that will just need a good polish and buff. Couple of spots that need a bit of T cut
Rust for sale, good for Thermite experiments
As an apprentice electrician in the early 80s I remember traveling in one of these vans. So cold on a winters morning, ice on the inside of the windows and the heater seemed a waste of time. 😃
Gulf colours an attempt to make it more interesting! These were dull as ditch water and old fashioned even when brand new!
First vehicle I owned gave 250 for her it was ex telecom 1979 V reg dogged her up and painted her with bus paint post office red happy memories Ash Corner do you remember all getting in back at college !
Daniel Brand new motor for ya 😂
My first works van on the gas board that was.
Wow thought for a second it was a Gulf GT40
Ryan Gamsby our new work van 😂🤣
My uncle had one in the 70s , the front doorlocks were knackered & had to get in & out through the back doors. Used to be one ran around the city with a v8 , cool purple paint job & massive slot mags
It’s a ha ha van in thosecolours
My first car gave 300 pounds for it
my dad had 2 yellow and 1 blue
Gulf colours isn’t it Keith Johnson?😂😂
Remember driving a blue one for work, I was only young and the usual driver was on holiday. They trusted me , I was so chuffed.
If I remember rightly steering wheel was same as HC viva very late ones had smaller chevette type wheel
I had one canary yellow and it had been painted outside only same as one above
I had one after I passed my test loved to old girl
Wow definitely rocking horse 💩 the rotted like crazy !
New towing vehicle lol 😂.
One for you Keith Hill back in the day
Is Chrissy wood in that 😂😂😂
GT40 colours too 😂
Company van Mr David Rains
Odd job bob a job Bob 🤣
Alan Thorndyke you’re colours lol 😂.
I’m the owner of this plate. Turns a lot of heads 😂 currently on retention
I thought you could only transfer a number off a vehicle with a valid mot? Good luck getting that through a test anytime soon!
Rita, Sue and Bob too! 🤣
i tried to buy that 15 years ago,was rotten then
Coming soon to a banger track near you 😂
Not worth a penny with no mot
Stephen Mcm check insurance on this
Gonna need more than that in money and resources to fix this one.
U get the plate on a retention certificate and I’ll buy plate if cheap enough
My plate says ‘69 be right back’ 🧐
the pics are not good. by looking at the pics it going to need a serious amount of work and money to get that put back on road.
Didn’t think the reg was transferable if the car it’s on didn’t have a MOT...
Driven a few over the years,a suprisingly nice place to be,especially the estates..
Good luck anyone trying to transfer that without an mot then 😂
Sod the car have the reg
You can take a plate off a car with no MOT as long as the car had failed tax in the last 12 months. Done it lots of times.
Had to have had tax/MOT expired no more than 6 months to be transferable these days I think
We know a customer that would love this Alex Smith
John JC Chefneux almost as good as the reg on your bike
Daren Moyse I want to buy just to transfer the reg to my car 😂
Well the Granada always had a lot of space inside 🤣
Just for the plate lol 😂😂
Not worth a penny without MOT
Ben Bradwell the perfect reg doesn't exis...
Sam Summerhayes Number plate and a return bangers?
£5000 ,everything else that has escort,mk1,mk2,Mexico,RS,2000;2 door in the title makes stupid amounts of money on eBay even rotted out shells ,the worlds gone mad and to be honest ,if everybody was really honest with themselves were they really that great a car when they were new.I think it’s the nostalgia thing kicking in big style 😉🙄
I’ve got a set of these collecting dust in my cupboard
Worth more than I paid for a whole mex in 1980, and it had 6 dial dash, wish I still had the pile of rust 😜
Yes just a few but still have a set and for sure all the wood trim kit too I’m a horder 😂👀🐒🐒
twin cam clocks are white like mother of pearl ....
I sold a set for £120 about 10 years ago!
Rs 2000 had 130mph
I got mine 2001 for 30 quid! exactly the same as this one with the dished rev counter and speedo, result 💪
Is there a prize for being nearest the price that it actually sells for?
I sold two sets of these last year, on ebay. 410 and 380 was as far as they got. 😭
So come on then what should I sell them for then
Gareth Muircroft will you be needing a set of these?
The Blue Oval bell ends will love em!
Titch Mancini I have had at least 2 of these 140mph 6 clocks, I bet you’ve had more? 😂😂😂
