I bought one on Monday this week, from John Coughtrie. He fitted the
mechanicals of a 1985 Coupe GT 5E into a 1983 body shell. The agglomeration
has now done 250k+ miles and he no longer needs it - he has a company Mondeo
for drudgery and a beautifully restored 1983 ur-quattro for fun.
GBP700 for a car rebuilt by hand five years ago doesn't seem bad. It looks
like new from underneath (the only view that counts, IMO.) It also has a
current MOT certificate.
