I'd rather walk or take the bus :roll: And it would be faster...

That, seriously, must be the last one left on the planet. The old tinworms used to love 'em to bits, literally :lol:

One variety, possibly the better one, had a bored Hillman Imp engine in it. Looks like this specimen has the Hillman Avenger engine in it... A boat anchor if ever there was...

Wasn't there a rather brutish Lotus engined version that saw some rally success?

OK Sunbeam let's fire up the Talbot, in the middle underneath would be the best place!! :wink:

Last owner 30 years, this is one that should have gone through the scrappage scheme.

Old school or what 1.3 with a slush box.

Power to weight ratio must be low!!

It looks a proper dog. You could buy a car for that sort of money - another 500 quid and you could have a Lexus GS 300

Ads like this on eBay just crack me up. I can't see why anyone would want this one - but with bids and at that price I am being proved wrong.

How about this little gem then?:

I must say it's heading for 'silly money' by the look of it...

And this:

Wot, no bids?
:D
