"Very good condition for it's age"???? I've scrapped better ones than that!

Difficult to say from the pictures, but it could be the short lived dark blue version.
Dark blue or not, the parts alone are well worth £50, but it's a long way from Somerset.

This is the dark blue model, it's almost black, so the one on offer must be the standard blue version. My criticism is not of the asking price, it's the description!

I'd buy it for £50 if I lived 10 miles away !

Thanks gents! I'm 20 miles away and am just about to drive over and snaffle it.

I'm just about ready to subsidize the purchase by a pound or two, just to reward you for using the term "snaffle"!

Hahaha, thanks guys!

No surprises with the 101, either positive or negative - the external covering is completely shot (somebody painted it black at some point! but probably to disguise black tape patch repairs) but it's in fine shape otherwise, just a motor service and attention to the soundbox needed as usual.
