NOW SOLD PLEASE LOCK
After careful consideration I've decided to drop the asking price from £6000 to £5000 (no offers). The car is in great condition and I'm only dropping the price due to concerns over the insurance classification. Any inspection welcome, I'm happy to keep her if she doesn't go at this price.
The car is rust free and all electrics work.
After 5 (mostly) blissful years of ownership, the recent arrival of another tiny person and new house purchase mean I no longer have the time or love to give to my Corrado.
This is my second corrado and 5th VR6 and easily my favourite of them all.
I purchased this Corrado from the MD at Heaton Park Coachworks in Newcastle following restoration and full glass and seal out respray. The car was brought in with light panel damage following a collision with a bollard due to a failed handbrake. I was never worried about the classification as the condition and driveability of the car were so good and the workmanship of the coachworks excellent. I guess that should be expected as it was the MD's personal car. After doing a bit of research I've discovered it was classified as a Cat C in 2010 and whilst I appreciate there is a stigma involved with this I beleive it is still an excellent example and deserves my asking price below . . .I do however appreciate that the history will put a lot of buyers off and will therefore be open to reasonable offers. I really believe it needs to be seen and driven to be appreciated fully.
The car was completely standard when I purchased it and I've only carried out minor modifications which I feel enhance the car but they can easily be reverted to original spec.

I'm sure there is more but that's off the top of my head.

There will be several extra and spare parts supplied including the following.
Sprinters under bonnet sound proofing kit
Uprated headlight wiring loom (forum member)

Again, there's probably a few other bits.
There hasn't been any head work carried out to my knowledge, I enquired about a top end rebuild last service for peace of mind but was advised against it as the engine runs, sounds and pulls well with no signs of loose chain tensioners etc.
I've tried to add a load of photo's below so hopefully they've worked out.
The price I've put on the car on Car and Classic is now:-
As mentioned prior, I believe the condition of this car warrants the price.
