Spotted this H120 in Bristol this morning (27th Dec 2010).
Does any one know anything about this car?

Yes it is known to the club, used to belong to Muriel Lindo I believe. I think it changed hands maybe 12-18 months ago.
Shame to see it parked on the roadside, let's hope they were visiting friends?!

Hi Jason

Yes i think i remember seeing it advertised around the time i sold my Rapier.

Looks a basically good car with some rust bubbling around the offside rear wheel arch & some diy sill covers fitted.

I fear it may be someones daily driver & with the amount of salt on the roads at the moment that would spell rust for any Rapier.

It was parked close to where my parents live so i'll check out over the coming weeks if it's still there.

Yes, I reckon it was bought locally and given a spuce up and is now being sold on again. A shame when it was in one family for so long (c.33 years) from new. Might be a bit steep on price.

I must admit I was a tad suprised that it already had a bid of 2500

its back on ebay apparently due to a time wasting bidder according to the sellers blurb

Looks like it would need some work, but the way the "very poor" cars are selling 2.5k may be a good price for a genuine H120.

Anyone bidding? if so I'll not bother

it needs work according to various posters on here. it has 106 watchers on ebay so perhaps others are waiting to snipe? it needs a good home and someone with the time and money to turn it around. The chap had it on his You tube channel for 1500 but when it showed up on Ebay, it was originally up for 2.5K. its been reduced to 2.3k this auction. looks a nice car, but buying a car via auction is a little tricky, I think i prefer to touch and feel before i buy and part with a large amount of money
