Why the price? Seems well below market value?

I agree. Looks a bargain to me.
Cheers, Clive.

Will the “Q” put people off? Not sure? - all depends on how well it’s build and finished off in my opinion.

Is there any way to get rid of a Q plate?
Or is it once a Q always a Q?

Long process and requires some rebuilding (to meet 2 major components from single donor etc.) re-IVA and re-registering. Normally not worth it.

I guess the answer to the Q plate is that yes it would put some people off. It immediately indicates it’s a rebuilt car and not a possibility of being an original. Of course there’s also hundreds of owners with more up to date reg numbers who don’t care.
It’s one of those nice to have if you can get a ‘60’s plate.
