When you consider it has the wrong wheels on and sold at auction for circa £70k a few months back, that particular car isn't good value.

The BB range in general is undervalued though, in my opinion.

Price is the worst driver for a Boxer purchase. Please take your time, look at several, drive several, and buy the best you can afford. Purchase price only smarts for a little while, feeding a dog smarts for a lot longer.

Personally I much prefer carb Boxers, but it depends what you prefer yourself. I would recommend trying to drive all models, they really are all quite different in character.

The best bargain was my own Boxer BTW, sold for way too little in Feb. frown Needs must and all that.

Have the vendors explained why the car has 365 wheels on it?

I drove a Ferrari 512 BB a few months back and it was such a sweet thing to drive. Steering and clutch weren't as heavy as I expected, and the old girl still felt planted in the bends. And my god did she make a good noise!!!!

Definitely an undervalued car, I guess in some ways its the predocessor to the 288 GTO?

I reckon that's exactly the right spec for one of these- carbs and LHD. Carb'd cars make more power (and noise) and if you look at the location of the gear lever, it stays there for RHD, they just bend the lever itself...

Undervalued cars in today’s classic car market

Strangely Jensen Buttons one was doing the rounds of the auction houses after it failed to sell at Bonhams a while back

http://www.bonhams.com/auctions/19280/lot/337/

Think one of the second league auction houses sold it end for about £75k last year, now that was a bargain

Fairly sure that's the car that was in JCT600s showmroom for several years in the 90s

Agreed it's a great car. Fancy one myself.

As for it being the predecessor to the 288GTO - not even close. They are not in the same league and nor do they donate any DNA to the GTO (for that, you need to look to the humble 308).
