I think the seller is hoping someone else will have auction fever!

Testing the waters?
At 65k I think you'll find them very cold indeed!

Actual valued at £65000 as agreed value

Good point about engine seal that will go on the snagging list.

Very harsh remarks

If you want to say something come and see me at vanfest

There are only 13 of these in the country for the year and model

According to rikki james log of sambas

There are three of this colour and this is only one to this standar

Problem these days is everyone a expert and green not a nice colour

Thank you all not going to sell at all will show instead

some harsh remarks. but i think 65k is not realistic. i think you probably knew that anyway.
im not sure who gave you that valuation but they need to get a grip. if he thinks its worth that then sell it to him for 50k and he can make a profit :)

only 13 lhd sambas in the country? really?

Harsh remarks, yes, but for a poorly worded possibly for sale ad, with no photo's etc, you laid yourself open to it i'm afraid. At £65k you are taking the mickey, so don't be too upset by folk doing it back. If that IS what it's worth, and someone DOES buy it, then well done to both of you :D

I am looking for a BUS AND MUST SAY I WOULD BUY SOOTY`S BUS AT HIS VALUATION TOMORROW, I concur with the remarks however buses are only worth what buyer and seller agree on, Adds like this inflate prices of buses which add value to all our buses but lets keep things realistic, valuations like that just increase insurance premiums.

I am confused . COM

Sooty,,,,SELL ME YOUR BUS.
