Manual Maserati 228 anyone?

I have sent them an email enquiry but I suspect with the condition and mileage it will be outside my budget
You may be surprised - according to MOT checks it hasn't really moved for 8 years so is going to require extensive recommissioning.

Even factoring a full service, new tyres, fluids and hoses would be a good bargaining point.

I would also be interested (likewise I hate POA)

Keith’s going to get back to me with a price.
I’ve actually been in this car - admittedly a few years back now - 2016 I think - and it was absolutely minty mint then.
Can’t vouch for its current condition but if it’s been stored there it’s probably been well looked after.

Had an email from Keith he is selling on behalf of a customer who has asked him to market it at £25k, based on that price the Stus Racing that Dicky sold last years was much better value IMO

That Racing was a lovely car, went to a serious collector who owned one already. As close to ‘as new’ as possible, now gone to Munich. Lovely chap who bought it, says a lot if condition was good enough to satisfy a German surgeon.

Then was then and we were in the process of moving to Ireland, if it was for sale now I would have bought it.

This car may be stunning and low mileage but it is only a base 2 door with an aftermarket injection system on it. It hasn't been used in the last 6 years or more so you can expect some recommissioning will be required. Not for me.

Agreed - £25k is too rich for me.

I saw that racing at CarFest last year and was unsuccessful in convincing Mrs H that we needed another car :(

Would anyone be interested in one of the engines converted by Trident motorsport?
I have one, PM me if interested.
