Forgive me for being old, but were you at the the 2022 NJMP

 

2022 NJMP was right around the time that I was taking delivery for the new family member. We were on the waiting list for 9 months and the Mrs was not amused at the logistics of taking that delivery at NJMP instead of the predetermined location where we could do a proper PDI.

They might have overpaid at auction (if that's how they acquired it), and would lose their shirt going lower. It seems a rather optimistic price.

Yes it has been around way longer than it should be.  I assumed it was consignment and the owner was not adjusting down to meet the market.  However, after all this time I think @slowdude is more likely right as consignment sellers eventually dump owners if they are not being realistic on price meeting the market as the advertising fees do tend to stack up. 

 

$40K for a Westfield is a high amount for that spec.  Thats Westfield Seight model territory.

I’ve been hunting for info & photos of a London Show car that this latest Caterham on BaT is to have been based on. I found a BBC video on YouTube of the 1991 Motorfair at Earls Court in London.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NJczSA3tr4

Starting around 28:12 they show a HPC that I thought looked purple. The wife tells me it’s blue. What do I know? I’m colour blind and it was late at night when I found it. Anyway, the presenter talks about the “K” series engines from Rover. I think it was misleading people to think that's what was powering the car she was sitting in. I know I took it that way. Car looks to have had a black interior with grey piping which I think looks much better than the two tone grey in the auction car. Back in 1991 it sure looked sweet up on that display stand. I wonder where this car is now.

Other things I noted in the video are the front turn signals are on stocks mounted to the nose. I’ve seen a couple of cars with motorcycle style turn signals there but never a factory car. Also, there is no “7” in the grill. When did they start adding that? What else have I missed?

This show car could be the Chris Rea album cover car. The album was released in 1991. A Caterham also appears in the video for the title song (on YouTube).

I was going to look up the plate but you beat me to it. I found this on Wikipedia:

Auberge is the eleventh studio album by British singer-songwriter Chris Rea, released in 1991. The album, as well as the title song, is notable for its association with the Caterham Super Seven that Rea owned, which he called the "Blue Seven". The car appears on the album cover, illustrated in oil by renowned motoring artist Alan Fearnley. The album makes several references to the car over several tracks, as well on the video of the title song, and its cover illustration was used for its adverts. In 2005, Rea sold the car in an auction.

The car on display however was not his, at least not the car ued for both the cover and the video. Chris Rea’s personal seven was a 1987 Sprint with cycle wings. But it was nice cross branding having the plate read Auberge. I wonder how many sevens were sold from people’s exposure to Caterham through this one song, album and/or video?

I was surprised to learn the following.  Jem Marsh designed the car below in 1958, and began selling copies in 1959.  It was an evolution of an earlier model he had been producing in very limited numbers.  Does it remind you of anyone else's superlight, super-spartan, small-motored sports car which was first offered for sale in 1957?  The Marcos sports car could be ordered with motors up to 1.172 CC.   It is said that Jem March was unaware of Colin's new car, and this is possible because of pre-internet limited exposure.  A few years later. Jem Marsh began producing his beautiful GT, first with a 4 cylinder motor, and finally with a Ford V6 (subject of the second image).  With that car, his competition was the Jaguar XKE, and some period mags put the Marcos GT's performance on par with the XKE.  The Marcos 750 (below) all the way up the GT were distinguished by lightweight wooden frames to which fiberglass was bonded (the marine plywood frames were completely sealed by fiberglass, to prevent rot).  As a young man, I invested substantially (compared to my available resources) in a good-looking V6 GT, of which only about 149 were ever built.  It needed paint and mechanical restoration.  I bought all the parts, but during the rebuid the shop went bankrupt, and half my new parts went missing.  Frustrated, I sold the project and never got to drive the completed car.  it is one I wish I could have kept.  PS - that is Jem March in the cockpit of the 750.  He was tall for the period - 6' 4" in shoes!:

Marsh's first car, nicknamed "The Splinter Special." marcos-gt-front-side-tjoloholm-classic-motor-2018-1-551192.jpg

I am not sure that means the car has been crashed and rebuilt three times. (Although, I may be wrong.) I think that it may have had one big rebuild. Every time it’s been registered in a new state after that it shows up on the new state’s title as “Reconstructed”. Three different owners registering for the street, three different states reconstructed titles.

As far as price, it'll bring what ever that one person is willing to pay over what every one else is prepared to spend.
