ERA R1072 - FOR SALE

Post by robr1006 » Wed Jul 16, 2014 10:16 am

For sale on eBAy (Twice!) for £19995. Mileage is only 11882 described as:

a very rare opportunity to not only view but also have the chance to buy a genuine rover MINI E.R.A. TURBO, this is the only era turbo number R1072 which was supplied and sold by cleveland garage who were the rover main dealer in jersey, and came back to this country in 1995 when it was regesterd as N316DJA and held in a private collection for the next 14 years then bought by ourselves in 2010 at which time the car had only covered 11;882 miles, its done less than 25 miles since and has been under covers in our warm garage for over 4 years, we have now had the car regestered on its year relating plate from swansea with its number plate athorisation certificate to varifie change, this car is in absolute superb condition throughout the car is almost 25 years old, all the body panels are like new the underneath of the car is perfect and has never had any welding or panels fitted.

The description is fair it is certainly all there - but as is to be expected of a 25 year old car it has a few additional bits and also a couple of bits not original - can anyone spot more than the few listed below:

Burr Walnut door cappings & door furniture
Clear front indicator lenses
Looks like a 2" Exhaust system
Non standard fuel cap

Things wrong or missing!

ERA Boot badge on the wrong side
Non original coil mounted on the gearbox not on the head stud bracket
Elbow from the auxuilary water radiator to the os inner wing missing
Blue silicon pipe to the antirun on valve
Non standard - non retractable radio aerial
Pretty pink relay in the engine bay

and..........

You would have thought before taking pictures of a £20,000 car the dealer would have straightened the aerial!

13.20 2nd June 2015

Car did not sell at the previously offered price, reappeared as an auction with buy it now for I think £19999.00. I think the buy it now option disappears once the reserve has been met which it has - car is at £16200 with 3 days to go!!! About time the value of ERAs started to reflect their rarity - I hope it sells for loads to establish the open market value of all our cars just in case we are unfortunate enough to make an insurance claim

I was expecting to write here that the auction ended at £16400. There were 2 main bidders going backwards and forwards and the usual last 5 second burst did not happen.

HOWEVER,

It was re-listed for a buy it now price of £16500!!! and then almost immediately the "listing was ended by the seller because there was an error in the listing"

Hmmmmmmm perhaps the seller was expecting a late flourish too!
