Warwick #15


Sadly and reluctantly...

I've also come to the conclusion that the Warwick really doesn't fit into my life any more.
It's nice and loud, red and shiny, with a fresh MOT test and no advisories.  

Some bits are not original, but this isn't a trailer queen.  Some of the removed bits,
and a hard-to-find spares package included.

Having sold a Peerless before I know how protracted and frustrating this process can
be, so I'm not expecting it to be quick or easy.   Serious buyers only, and it won't be cheap.

The car will be at Lincoln if anyone wants to come and talk to me, or contact me if you
can't wait that long.

Frank from Felixstowe

sad news my friend but lifestyles do change especially over a long Peoria of time that these cars take to restore!

So far there hasn't been a huge amount of interest, so I've taken a few pics to help things along.


Like I said before, I'm not expecting this sale to be a quick or easy process, but if there is no
response here then I'll put it away for the winter and it'll probably end up on ebay.


Car is in Felixstowe.  Guide price? £25K but open to offers/negotiaton.


PM me if you want more info

Dear Frank,

I'm on vacation the next week and be back on 25. September, I would be happy for something to read and look at during this time .

Thank you in advance and looking forward to hear from you.

Best Regards

Update:

When I started to think about selling the Warwick, I posted it here, in the hope that there
would be an enthusiast out there that wanted one of these cars, with the heavy groundwork
done.  All the basic chassis, suspension and engine work finished, a decent paint job, and
with a current MOT.  Just the detail work to do, to turn it into the car that they really want.

We do get postings of "where can I buy a working one" here from time to time, and this car
would have fulfilled all those wishes.  Sadly a buyer of this type has not appeared this summer.
Given the prices of similar (working, and unrestored) cars elsewhere, I think the price was very
reasonable, but it didn't sell.  No problem, no hard feelings, and I'm not in a rush to reduce the
price at all.

So, unless a serious buyer magically appears before the end of the month, I'm going to withdraw the
car from sale and get on with the finishing touches myself over the winter.  The slightly clonky diff
will go off for a rebuild, I have some chroming to re-do, and I need to reinstate the broadsword,
the bumpers, and finish trimming the original seats.

When the car re-emerges next year, and in plenty of time for CLM, I may try to sell it again, but
into a different market, with a very different price tag.

Frank

fare play Frank, you gave it a go and as you say, you're not desperate so I would enjoy it a little more today and see what tomorrow brings

 

I have to say we/I do get a lot of "I want to buy one off the peg" inquiries but I guess when it comes down to hard cash it flushes out the dreamers................

Der Frank,

reading the conversations carefully, it seems for me, that you feel quite unhappy, the way, they happened. Please be so kind, and let's have a trial. I am a serious car collector from Vienna, Austria, specialized in British Specialists Cars. Awaiting your reply, Best regards, Alexander

Hello Frank,

sorry to hear you're selling. I was looking forward to our two-car quarter mile blast in the future.

I shared your posting here on my Facebook account last week, hoping it might create some interest for you from serious buyers.

Good luck with the sale. If you change your mind, the quarter mile offer remains open.

All the best,

Gary

Do you still have the Warwick for sale, if so I am very interested. I have a Daimler SP250 (dart) V8  it's value is about £27.000.00 (values vary Chris Evens car sold for about £90.000)

fancy some sort of swap/ deal? I would prefer to do as deal as I need the space but not essential. If you are interested I can give you pic's and info.
