At first glance I thought this was the same car as the earlier post. Its even got a similar 'modern' steering wheel cover.

I actually thought someone had bought this to 'flip-over' a couple of grand but its another Sundance Rapier.

Looked to me like it had the wheels changed and a Holts 'triple stripe' added but then noticed the sillis in black, then the tombstone seats.

Its a 1972 in Sundance Yellow with tombstone front seats. Reg BKT 444K I think. Its up for sale in Canvey Island. Yours for £7,995 govner'

Exactly.
The smart money is buying up Ford Probes and Vauaxhall Tigres. Hang onto a couple of those babies for 20 years and you'll be able to name your price, same as anyone now with a Talbot Alpine or a Hyundai Pony...

For one moment - thought it was a 3rd. My word, that is cheeky & back on e-Bay too! . Mind you, it is a year older than last time
5-6k I would have thought was a fair price. Rare high-backed seats, but they look custom made! Cue next dealer.... G.

The Listing ended unsold at £7,995, but don't worry it's been relisted at a new price with a £2,000 difference.

Its now on for £9,999!

Always worth waiting I say, no point in rushing in when if you wait and are patient you may be able to pick it up for a couple of grand more.

Get in there quick before it goes upto £12,000, its an investment opportunity!

Correction. It did sell...

It was originally for sale with DL Autos, 258 Furtherwick Rd, Convey Island, Essex SS8 7DR.

Its now up for sale with Purdeys, Purdey Ind Est Rochford, Essex, SS4 1NE.

Whaaallllop, what a Geezer!

Thinking of buying it myself and putting it up for £15,000. Anyone interested?

Think it was probably on the money at around £4,000 back in £2015 at £10,000 the only way is down when the bubble bursts.

Yes, what were the chances! BKT 444K was owned by long-standing member & LAO from the SE for about 35 years - he bought it as ex demo in '72, last saw it up for sale in 2015 at c. 4k. It has been well looked after. Hope it goes to someone who will continue to do that. Cheers. G.
