Don't think I've seen a non H120 bitter green fastback before, but here's proof there was such a thing.....

Be careful folks!!
this was pulled out of a hedge about six months ago or so, it has been doing the rounds on various facebook pages and is probably the second or third owner since the hedge, so i expect its a complete shed!!!!!!must admit looks better than my hedge find h120, i do like the bitter green colour

I agreed to purchase this when it first came to light along with the other dark green car, the vendor had no documents for either and didn't know who the owners where so I had to decline


Somebody on here was asking about this car a good few years ago

sometimes nothing can be a real cool hand

rgds above comment - i tried contacting the seller when they first showed the two cars, yes i got excited thinking the bitter green one might be an h120 but someone told me it wasnt, i couldnt get a reg number at the time, he probably had a load of people on it but it was a bit to far away to take a chance on, ive been to sheffield and sunderland to get genuine h120s but as ive seen quite a few fastbacks i recognise when its just not worth it.........

Yes Jason it rolls so half way there! not like the greenhouse i have in the yard, rear springs through the floor and a posts left in the hedge!

With time moving on, we’re getting close to a point where no Fastback is beyond saving.
How many are left out there that are yet to be discovered? Fastbacks here in Ireland are as rare as leprechauns. I placed an ad looking for Rapier Fastback parts and to my surprise I got a reply. A chaps has parts but wants to sell the whole car, understandable. At the moment no pictures, don’t know the condition or colour, manual or automatic. Watch this space. Will post pictures if I get any.

I think there was a real person bidding this time, Look at the £400 bid and that is about all it's worth in reality. Seller now hss put it up to £680 with his crap schill account with zero feedback. Just wants too much for a car that they do not legally own (Still do not have paperwork). They have been trying to do some work on it though. radiator is now in boot pity they snapped the thermostat housing while undoing the top hose,

Sometimes I think laterally, but then I have to get up!
