If it's a clean one that's a decent price I think. They're lovely things to drive and they look like nothing else before or since. The 20V Turbo one is properly rapid too, about 220bhp I think...and gave a lot of far more expensive contemporary motors a bit of a shock in that regard.

Yes you are right there Zel. I had one on loan fot a week and went down to Romney Marsh for a motoring weekend with CSMA. It was a great handling machine and I loved it. Today's one was the 20v Turbo and in pretty good condition from the pictures. A bargain in my opinion!! :)

Both my clocks came from auction listings for May.
Yours is the one you featured on Classics For under £10K. I like the Corsair. George Gently's sidekick had a blue one in the TV Detective Series.

In the commercial vehicle world has righthand drive, and lefthand drive just been consigned to history, together with poor visibility cabs.

Mercedes cracked the right hand drive / left hand drive issue many years ago with the Unimog - you just moved the whole steering wheel and console from left to right as you pleased :)

Just gentle attempt to wrestle the topic back on topic but with acknowledgement to the off-topic theme

We've all seen the exterior of the Outspan Orange but what's it like inside

Coincidentally, the first half of Edd China's latest Workshop Diary Youtube video is all about the inner working of his own Outspan Orange :) The second half is about the machining of the bits to join the exisitng gearbox of his electric ice cream van conversion to a new electric motor.
