But not messed about with rough which is great you can see a true reflection of what requires attention.

Third time of listing?

I believe this Huntly is in Scotland. If it had been the Huntley in Gloucestershire I would have looked at it for anyone.

This one was for sale a few years ago in Elgin was also on eBay a few times before it seemed to sell, and now it's moved a few miles.  I believe it's Mallard.  Rot includes rear pillar beside the tailgate but all sounds fixable.  It's very near me, and I have been tempted, just have too many projects.

Didn't sell and hasn't been relisted yet.  Hope someone can save it....   :-/

Here's an old listing for it:

Sorry to revive an old thread but some happy news here. This estate changed hands a couple of times after the last post, ending up with a local stock car racer. The future really wasn't looking great for it with quite a lot of body work needed, but fortunately someone with the right skills picked it up a few months ago to restore. I spent about an hour looking round it with him today, he has done some great work saving a very nice original car, and it was looking lovely in its new mallard paint.

This is how the estate looks now. I was excited to get a proper look at the weekend now the restoration is finished - lovely car!

Fantastic, it looks like he's done a great job. Funny how the photos show the colour, as I could have sworn that was Sapphire Blue looking at those.

That floating head through the rear window in the first picture is creeping me out though.

It's much more green than that in real life, sorry not the greatest of photos. And sorry about the disembodied head - that'll be my mate Dan, always one to photobomb!

Cheers! Yes this is great as the car was so near to being lost. It's likely to be advertised soon, pity it's beyond my budget!
