> Andy No­ble of Sev­ens and Clas­sics de­scribes all en­gines as very strong. ‘We’ve sold over 600 and see so few prob­lems. Keep a Seven en­gine fed with oil and wa­ter, don’t over-rev it [by down­shift­ing too early] and they’ll last a life­time. The best? The K-se­ries: light, durable, plenty of power, full of char­ac­ter.’

> Don’t be too put o by re­paired dam­age. ‘As long as it’s been re­paired cor­rectly, it’s ab­so­lutely ine,’ says No­ble. There are good deals on pri­vate cars, but we’d buy from a

dealer for peace of mind.

> If reg­is­tered as ac­ci­dent­dam­aged, a Seven is worth half to two-thirds of the value of an HPI clear car.

> Se­ries 3 is the most pop­u­lar, with most cus­tomers opt­ing for low­ered loors and a lit­tle more space.
