Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Legally, a lot can de­pend on how much you pay for a car and if that sum is con­sid­ered fair. Should you buy a re­stored clas­sic for half the typ­i­cal restora­tion cost, it could be ar­gued that you could not ex­pect it to be in A1 con­di­tion (un­less the car were ad­ver­tised as such) and a rea­son­able per­son will ex­pect to bud­get for re­pair work other than rou­tine main­te­nance. Should you find that the same ex­am­ple was both dan­ger­ous and non-road­wor­thy, within a very short pe­riod of own­er­ship, de­spite the ve­hi­cle hav­ing a full MoT, and zero de­fects dis­closed in the ad­vert, you would likely have a much stronger case.
