    I reckon that’ll be Tobias’s red Nova ... it’s a really nice example with lovely wheels I’ve never seen before. He sold it to them a while back when they had a few Novas and then they specialised in classic minis ... but Tobias’s Nova lurked in the background of some of the mini photos. To be honest I’m surprised they’re not putting the engine back in and asking a lot more!

    If I’m right, here’s a link to Tobias’s thread .... http://www.euro-nova.co.uk/vb/showth...l=1#post123573

    Yes you've got to wonder why they aren't fitting the engine. It's a very easy quick job. Perhaps there are still issues with the engine and transaxle?

    Hmmm ... sounds like there might be. I've just read the thread again. He was having difficulty finding 1st and 2nd, which makes me wonder if it was only the gear shift plate that I had lots of bother with too?

    Still, bearing in mind the overall condition of the car, at that price I reckon it's still a good buy even if you have to source another engine

    Advertís been removed so the Nova must have sold.

    Theyíve replaced the advert with another saying Ďwe want to buy your kit car, replica, etcí and the 1st photo is an aerial shot of Jimís old Nova ... I had to look twice because itís got £19,995 underneath it and you could be forgiven for thinking that itís come back from Thailand ... but of course it hasnít

    Hong Kong actually !

    But no, not back !

    I spotted the advert too - I like the aerial shot - it did look good in that lighter grey in the end :-)
