Mae­stro faces chop

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

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.’
