County 1124

Recommended Posts

Anything County is worth silly money,   and appreciating fast.   I know someone who bought a Ben Craig rebuilt G reg 1174 for top money 2 years ago,  looks like it just came out of the factory.   Its risen in value in that time by 10k maybe more.

No ones beating a path to my door, anyway this one has some sentimental value as my curly haired little girl was 2 when I bought it so we named it after her.

I think that it is much the same story with classic cars.  Generally it is a labour of love and they are sometimes worth as much unrestored as pristine simply because a retired individual who might have come into a bit of pension money and is needing a project would find more satisfaction in seeing the job through himself.
