Bob Simpson gave me the heads up on a very rare SVW car going to auction tomorrow 24th June. Its a Charlesworth for full restoration at £4-8000k which is cheap. I've only seen one for sale and it was at £68k and there are only 2 in the UK of 5 known worldwide.
Check it out at Bicester Classic sale
Sold for £19,040 and with around £50k pro restoration will be £70k to break even. The new owner will have a wonderful car to use and show, great to see another on the road
