Beauford 4 door Open Top Tourer
You are looking at the rare opportunity to purchase a beautiful white 4 door open top Beauford. If you are looking at this then you’ll know these cars are impossible to find available to buy during the summer months.
Owned and driven (occasionally during summer months and weddings) by myself since 2004
2294cc Ford V6 engine, donor car registered 1981. Ford running gear, very cheap to run and maintain. I have a Rolls Royce Silver Shadow, which has cost me ten times as much as this car to maintain as is not even close to being as popular.
Had Agreed Insurance valuation (August 2007) at £20,000 by Beauford Cars. Due to be re-valued for insurance purposes (expected valuation around 26K
Since the valuation it has had a Brand New MOHAIR hood fitted with special ONE MAN easy operation hood. If you are familiar with Beauford's you’ll know that the standard hood is a little clumsy to put up and down. I had the hood and frame specially made for the car at a cost of over £3000. It also has a smart MOHAIR hood envelope which fits over the hood when in the down position. No expense has been spared on this beautiful car. It also had a full strip down professional re spray at the same time so the paintwork is gleaming. A turn key car from Beauford's would cost you circa £28,000 so this car offers a fantastic opportunity to save money
Has long MOT and tax .Will put full 12 months MOT and 6 months tax on if bought for the “buy it now” price.
Always garaged- as this beautiful car has been primarily used as a wedding car, the rate charged being £350.00 for a local wedding maximum 3 hours. A great way to earn £350 on a Saturday morning!!!! Ideal semi retirement opportunity or investment or just a great part-time job!!
Unexpectedly now for sale due to health problems.
I will include in the sale the various rolls of ribbon, champagne glasses etc that I have.
All good tyres. Was completely painted underneath 18 months ago in gloss black so even looks great underneath!
The dateless plate (HUI ****) is included in the price.
A couple of minor faults with the car. There is an intermittent fault with the temperature gauge which means sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. There are absolutely no overheating problems with the car so this has never caused me any concerns. I will try and get this sorted before any sale is agreed. The mileage counter goes backwards! The speedo works fine but for some reason the counter counts down instead of up. It has always done this and it doesn’t affect the car in any way. I did advise my limited mileage insurance company who were fine about it. Obviously they needed to know why the policy declared mileage was less at the end of the year! I have several years old MOT’s confirming the mileage has always counted back. The car has always been serviced more often than required and has been maintained to the highest standard.
Viewing is recommended and is by appointment only by emailing 'Ask seller a question'
Interest is expected to be very high as over the past four years I have had numerous people ringing me asking if I know of any white Beauford's for sale.
The car will not be released without cleared funds.
Sorry, I can’t take a part exchange or swap. I need to have the money for this beautiful car.
This is a genuine sale, a genuine opportunity to make some serious money in the wedding car hire business. Have a look at the pictures, come and view the car and take her for a test drive. I will offer any assistance I can for anyone wanting advice on setting up a business with this car.
I can deliver the car to you very reasonably, but I will need to have had full cleared payment before I set off.
This car has been up and down the Country for weddings and special occasions. I have had a lot of pleasure from driving her and will be truly sorry to see the car go.
The asking price is £25,000 or very near offer.if you don’t want to risk not winning the bidding. I’ve seen Beauford's change hands for £28,000 + in the summer months so this could be a great bargain for someone.
Any questions, I will be more than happy to answer. If there is anything specific you need to know or if you want any more photos of a particular part of the car, please let me know and I’ll be happy to help if I can.
