Strong money for something wanting " light restoration" i.e. new upper tailgate required and so on and so on.

I've seen the £15k HJ45 that's for sale in Sussex further down in the list at Tuff Trek. It's very clean, only had a quick look and didn't hear it running though.

People are probably going to be asking more and more for these old trucks on the run up to the 2030 new ICE ban, until that is the Gov decide to start targeting those hanging on to their old vehicles. On the plus side the 2030 ban doesn't apply to motorcycles!:happy-cheerleaderk:

I read a typo that seems to have been copied all over the place saying most drivers can't afford a new electric vehicle , but i'm not going to email them all with the correction - most drivers can't afford a new washing machine !

Rising prices are bad news for our community - a barrier to entry & an invitation to speculators to drive prices even higher.I guess most of you who own an 80 wouldn't part with it unless it was worth really sky high money , maybe like some of the FJ/BJs on the classic car site ? prices seem to vary wildly -there was a Citroen AX sport going for 9 K ! but a Celica convertible for 2.5 K ? Trying to predict the future is notoriously difficult.
The so called ban on ICE vehicles is a great sound bite for a government deep in the shit but it only proposes the prohibition on new vehicles . The idea that the car industry can fully convert to electric in 10 years , let alone the infrastructure needed for charging etc. is pie in the sky.

It will excite the kids who will only vote to be Borgs because they are young enough to believe they know everything , 10 years from now they will be working all the hours just to pay rent and wondering who voted for all this save the planet bullshit same as the rest of us .

We see a lot of asking prices but hardly no sales figures. I guess if there are multiple bids after the sale ends that may be a guide but I expect several fall through.
