    Superb Leather T-Bar 87 - the 30k Resto one

    The time has come for me to sell one of my fleet, as the 1a currently being renovated is progressing and I have another that is not being used. I cannot drive them all so I have reluctantly decided to put this beauty up for sale:

    That’s is such a stunning example Jonathan. Good luck with the sale....seems like a bargain to me.

    Do you plan on having the blue one built to the same or similar standard?

    Hi Chrys, these cars are so difficult to price but I’m hoping someone sees the benefit of what’s been carried out on the car.

    I can’t see the blue one achieving the same level of build quality but you never know.

    I am pleased to see progress with yours at long last - it must be a relief to see the end of the tunnel? It certainly looks a nice example.

    If I had the space and cash, I would snap your red one up at that price. It’s probably one of the best examples in the UK.

    Yes it is nice to see mine getting there but it has been a very frustrating process. The fuel pump has still got to be done again and the paint got a little damaged in places whilst in storage unfortunately. It will still be a great car to use and show though.

    Did those seats sell?

    That’s a real bugger about the fuel pump - I feel for you. Call it yet another blip in the life of an MR2 restorer, but it'll be worth it in the end. Your car is going to so good, I can’t wait to see it.

    I’ll post some pics of my blue one soon, once I’ve got over to view it. BTW, I managed to get a fab pair of valence panels for 80 in the end, which is a bit of a steal really.

    I look forward to seeing the progress.

    Glad you got some good valances too. One less panel to worry about

    A very sad day indeed, after six and a half years of ownership

    Well, there is this, but it’s a far cry . . .

    Please excuse the wheels, they came with the car (should be the 1a’s).
