Maestro faces chop
An immaculate 1984 Austin Maestro 1.3 HLE that hit the headlines in 2014 for having 103 miles on the clock may now be stripped for parts.
B189VYK surfaced in 2014 after being found, virtually unused, in a south-east London garage scheduled for demolition.
It was sold at Barons’ British Heritage Sale at Sandown Park on 2 September for £2900 plus commission.
The car resurfaced online last month with another two miles on the clock and a £9750 asking price. It’s also for sale via eBay with a description stating that it is being broken for parts.
The owner, who didn’t want to be named, says: ‘I’ve been offered £5000 just for the shell. So, the car’s easily worth £7500 in parts.’
