It was actually up for under 3000, i remember as I wanted to view and missed out as it sold quick, It had a Sierra engine and 5 speed box then.
It needed a fair bit of body work then, I wonder was anything done to it since?
If there hasn't there's a lot better bargains out there

I think you're right, I think maybe it was around 2700, and for sale in longford. I liked the look of it, but I live a little far away to go look at it, and already have the garage full.

You're a sick puppy then!

Having driven a 1275 Maestro many moons ago I can honestly say it was a steaming pile of cack. A 2.0 litre diesel one wasn't much better, but a 2.0 EFi one at least had some poke.

I like BL tin, but I've not much love for the Maestro.

Yeah, but it has a Padre Pio sticker on the windscreen

I think he wanted 800 for the Maestro then which was ludicrous money. If I had the cash I'd seriously buy it for the lolz

That sounds about right, the Safrane was 600 iirc.

Given I missed out on a mint Safrane a few weeks previously that had nct & tax that went for less I wasn't biting.

Did I really post that?

Anyway there were two SEP's (SEP 4 & 5) made at the same time and they didnt look a bit like the finished article! The first SEP's were Allegros with proper suspension.
