Wrong year car at auction

    I bought a car described as a 1958 at one of the more reputable auction houses in uk.. Car was advertised as a 58, but is a 60 Due to covid i did not travel to inspect.. I have bought lots of vehicles unseen this is the most disappointing . They are covered on condition of vehicle but say it was up to me to check year as they are resellers .. Anybody have any issues like this or have suggestions? Thanks

    I've no particular suggestions, but is the 1960 version of the car you bought worth a lot less than a '58 one? (less rare, etc)

    Not really , but i would have liked to enter in pre 60's events .and they are well covered on the other issues with the car .. i now have it driving and stopping , but was supposed to be restored .

    I dont think you will ever see any ad for a classic that does not say its been "restored", which
    is a relative term.....but relative to what?

    Amen!

    Strange, I thought a chassis number would be submitted and checked especially if it's a reputable auction house?
