Seller: beachbumdel (544) 100%, Location: Fareham, Ships to: GB, US, AU, Item: 153748898437 Up for auction is my very rare and lovely Siva Model T replica (or Siva Edwardian) if you're looking at this you probably know it as "Bessie" the Dr Who car of the 70's This car will give you more smiles per mile than any car you've ever owned! These are very rare, I believe only around 80 were built and there are as little as 18 left in the UK? It;s based on a Ford Popular with the side valve engine and 3 speed box. It's in pretty good condition, I bought it from an elderly gentleman on the IOW and it was well known on the island. I've been polishing and T cutting each time it comes out of the garage but to be honest I generally give up and take it for a drive ! It drives and runs well, takes a bit of getting used to with the 3 gears, pull start and manual choke and outside handbrake but easily mastered, people will always wave and smile at you as you go past! As with any old car it could do with odd jobs, personally I'd sort the handbrake cable as it's taped to the running board ( a couple of nice brass clamps would look good) , a nice new floor carpet and replace the missing trim buttons and leave it at that as it's so full of character! Loads of quirky vintage touches like the old fashioned dials, rad temperature badge bulb horn, leather bonnet and windscreen straps etc You could do weddings/proms etc with this or wrap it in yellow and turn it into a Dr Who car. Perfect Truly Scrumptious or Mary Poppins car! I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it, and it's been a tough decision to let it go as it's unlikely I'll see another for sale however I've just bought a Bond Bug and don't have any more room in the garage. If it doesn't sell for a sensible price I'll keep it and find some storage. I have a file of old receipts and information, it's tax and MOT exempt and only cost me £50 to add to my classic car policy. Given the type of car it is I strongly advise viewing, it's not modern car ! I'm in Fareham PO14 area. Any questions I'm on 07533337576 , happy if you want to call for more info. Happy to take you for a spin if it's a sunny day! Please only bid if you are genuine like me, and want a truly unique and fun car. I've seen these sell for £5-£10k , I've set a sensible reserve and would like it to go to a caring owner. I don't think there's another for sale in the UK at the moment. Please note the car will need to be collected by 18th December.On 04-Dec-19 at 22:39:08 GMT, seller added the following information: Hi All, I'm getting loads of questions and remembering things I should have put in the advert so I will update as they spring to mind! You'll see I've had a response from a long time Siva owner who's got lots of information on which you may find useful The fuel gauge doesn't work, no idea why and was going to get round to getting it sorted ! I usually fill up every few trips and there's petrol can in the box on the rear in case of emergency! I've never had an issue. I had a puncture last trip out so as the car had been standing a while when I first bought it I replaced all four tyre inner tubes with quality ones bought from Beaulieu Classics. Fan belt went so fitted a new one (marvellously easy took 5 minutes!) To avoid confusion this is not the actual car used in Dr Who, that one is in Beaulieu motor museum and I suspect would command 10x the price! Actually I think the period interior and gauges on mine is better than the Dr Who Bessie with its modern steering wheel etc! Starts first time, drives like a Siva should! Has a lovely old fashioned steering wheel with the "T" in the middle Comes with starting handle ! The carriage lights work and look lovely as you drive along. Will update as and when I remember more, will be doing more pictures at the weekend if you'd like some. Condition: Used, Manufacturer: Ford, Model: Model T
