TBCTransmission: AutomaticMileage: 63,297 milesMOT: Exempt Estimate: £500 – 1,000 (No Reserve)R.E.A.L are honoured to offer the Sidnell collection barn finds in our upcoming auction. 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.PHT 526Y is the earliest of the six Metros at the sale, registered in August of 1982 and believed to be a Wiltshire car most of its life. It shows just 62,297 miles on the clock, although this is almost impossible to confirm due to lack of history and with it not having been on the road since the system went digital in 2006. The three-door shell appears quite solid on the exterior but will certainly require some welding. The engine bay looks solid and the interior appears to be complete and presentable. This car also features a sunroof; it is supplied with a current V5C document 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.
