    Wink Barn find, wreck more like.. still getting bids though..

    I came across this gem earlier.. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/mk1-escort...23715057569680

    Now I am a fan of doing up old cars and even fixing up a write off, but this is taking things too far... However people are bidding on it...

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default

    Especially when it's titled "mk1 escort,mexico,rs2000,avo,rally,race" but the image of the V5 and one of the answers to a question at the bottom state it's a standard mk1 1100

    Should be reported as false advertising.

    Edit: infact I've just reported it because I'm in that sort of mood

    If you have a new shell and build a mk1 escort, or maybe you have an old rally car mk1 escort that was never road registered, it happens all the time with barn finds, there an e-type jag just ended in germany, it was that bad that in the description the seller said you can just have the numbers cut out and paper work sent to you, to save on transpotation....

    Its called ringing and is illegal. I have reported it also and to the relevant police authorities.

    It means you can register a stolen car, or more likely in this case a Mk1 that isnt free from VED
