    It’s only a “write off” if the owner makes an insurance claim.......there may be any number reasons the owner didn’t want to make a claim, maybe it was being driven when not insured? Maybe a big claim would put the premium up on several other cars?, maybe he didn’t want the wife to know......who knows!

    I would imagine this is quite repairable if done properly. Stripping and returning the chassis to GD for re-jigging is the correct way to go. Bodywork is only glassfibre so a proper repair would be quite acceptable.
    It’s academic anyway as the auction has been pulled.

    I'm only the teaboy and not a technical director
    but presume some are out there, a tiny minority, who are only interested in £££ profit
    and NOT your safety.

    Aye, perhaps there are folks oot there who don't insure £65k kitcars
    or insure them 3rd party to save themselves a little on the £££ build costs
    Maybe this, maybe that, maybe the other but who knows.


    Are you saying this is NOT a total loss insurance write-off
    Perhaps that next mega £££ kitcar that comes up for sale some might
    just want to have it fully inspected for previous accident damage.

    A fool and his money springs to mind if you go on looks alone.
    Before we were married - I made sure my beautiful wife could cook !


    Lets hope the car is fully restored 100%

    If it’s a total loss insurance write off, it WILL be recorded on the register. If an insurance company has paid out on a claim and taken the car off the owner, it is unavoidable.
    It’s just possible it’s been subject to a claim and NOT written off (65K valuation...repair costs 15K...just an example and probably not realistic, but just saying) in which case it’s still all above board, not every damaged car is written off....
