    Possible scam stag for sale in this months magazine.

    Just my own personal view. The green mk1 on page 93 and 94 no telephone number and no membership number looks suspiciously like the ones on fleabay. Maybe me being over cautious but you never know these days.

    Does look a bit suspect, its a pity the website doesn't get updated to match the magazine adverts - still showing the September cars for sale.....

        Why are people selling so cheap?! The Cherry red one on the site is gorgeous, makes mine look like it belongs in the scrap heap and it's only 9k?

            Agree with Jeff W above the Red Stag from the information and photos provided looks way under priced at 9k.
            Obviously a thorough look and test drive needed to confirm but looks a cracking car at the money.

            Because some sell at a low price all other sales have to be at an unrealistically low price to meet the market. A real shame that the cars are undervalued in both meanings of the word.

            ..and if you can buy cheaply why would anyone spend real money restoring and preserving a car, just use and then scrap until they have all gone.

              Exactly Alan - if the Cherry Red one is as it appears, it should be 17,000- 20,000 minimum. Everything looks new, right down to the strap holding the wiper motor. A bizarrely low price in my opinion, depressing all prices as you say.

                  CJG Me too. I paid 7500 for mine in 2016 and I thought I got a good deal - however as my posts have shown it has needed a lot of work, including the usuals (polybushes, flexible brake lines, radiator, tyres etc) so this one for 9 would have saved me thousands! I too didn’t look at anywhere near enough examples.

                    As a new member I am totally confused by some of the cars in this months issue. How can you have an insurance valuation and then advertise at a much lower price.
                    I am sure that I saw the Cherry Red Stag advertised a few months ago, at a much higher price although I may be wrong although the photos and location seem familiar.
                    Surely stability in the market is essential for realistic prices to be achieved, how accurate are insurance valuations? and these are being undermined by the current asking prices

                      When I bought my first Stag about 8 years ago I paid 5700 for it and received many years worth of insurance valuations varying between 10 and 12 thousand pounds so I don't have any great faith in insurance valuations as a realistic purchase price.
                      However, if your car is involved in an accident it can be all too easy for it to be written off because of the costs involved, and the insurance companies take a dim view of anyone claiming their car is worth far more than they actually paid for it.
