A lot of good points, thanks all.

It's done the miles, no way of getting away from that.

The engine is ~30k from a full rebuild and the rest of the car has been refreshed over that period, would it make any difference to talk up the restoration element?

I suspect the answer is no and that people will go on the mileage, and T8's post is I'm rather afraid spot on.

I have put it on VT etc, the chap who offered 5.5 for mine then went on to buy a car with no MOT(!) for £4,200 was from VT.

And then all of a sudden I had two emails on Sunday from people wanting to view the car.

Chap turned up tonight, very nice fellow, we looked round the car, went for a drive - he had a huge grin on his face after we found a straight, empty bit of road and gave the traffic behind us something of a surprise.

After a little horse trading we settled on 7k, which is a little low but he seems a genuine enthusiast.

He's now going to assemble the cash and transfer it and we'll then sort out the paperwork.

Nice work - I hope it gets concluded for you, what's VT by the way??

Thanks! Volvo Tuning - group on Facebook.

Chap has now requested some time to think about it, which I'm ok with - got the other chap coming on Thursday, so if this one falls through there's a backup. It that one falls through as well I'll sell it next year for 20 large (this may not happen).

Good news Dammit on the potential buyers, hopefully one of them buys it. Were they from the VT group or outside of that bit of the enthusiast network?
