The DVLA MOT check is a handy little gizmo. OUF711W looks like a tidy SC which went for a snip on ebay at £18,995 (do a sold search and you will find it). But the MOT history reveals not only major corrosion issues (by outer sill, door lip and seat belt anchorage) but a somewhat arithmetically challenging mileage history:

2016: 133,874 miles
2015: 133,673 miles
2014: 133,825 miles
2013: 133,973 miles
2012: 133,876 miles

Seems 2013 was the High Score year unlikely ever to be beaten. And presumably the test centre is less than a mile round trip away, given the one mile journey in the past year. Could have been MOT'd by some old codger who couldn't find his reading glasses, I guess? Or maybe a sticky odometer, a common problem with cheap old cars.

Shame I am not still in the market for one of these, as this is just the sort of car I would have loved to go and see a couple of years ago. "Bargain" SCs and 3.2s can provide marvellous entertainment in terms of how much a "small amount of rust" usually means. That said, this car does look lovely. But then they all do in pics. It's an SC after all.

Looks a bit iffy to me...why get it MOT'd every year if you are not using it?
