A variety of motor vehicles from the late Peter Sidnell who rented the same Wiltshire barn for over 30 years and was an avid fettler and classic car enthusiast. The majority of the cars were acquired before the early 80’s through friends and family where Peter had previously helped maintain their vehicles.E704 AMW was registered in May 1988 as a 3-door limited edition Mayfair. The model featured additions such as central locking and a digital clock. In terms of bodywork and paint this certainly is one of the best Metros we have for sale. The panels appear quite straight, only suffering from minor rust. The underbody subframes look well but the sills appear as though they may require some work. The car features a sunroof and although some parts are loose, the interior would clean up well. It is offered with a current V5C and a key.To be auctioned along with a fantastic selection of other vehicles on July 1st at our Showell Farm site, SN15 2NU with viewing on the 29th and 30th of June, you can also join us at our Nostalgia Social cars & coffee event on June 25th.
