But can anyone shed any light on it`s number stamp - FMC 11

FRPs with FMC numbered inlets (FMC001 to FMC023 I think) were the press cars.

Whilst they do command a premium over and above the normally numbered FRP inlets, I don't think that's a realistic price for one.

Cheers Cherie.
I thought it may well be something like that

On the price subject,
There`s a more common numbered one, also on the bay of flea`s...

at the same money!

The second one is blank, no number. Not seen many like that, seen the higher 500-600 numbers but not blank.

I wouldn't engrave anything on it now personally.

As Cherie says, FMC11 is/was a press car and most of them were renumbered once their press duties were complete.

Weren't the blank ones the surplus from when Ford decided to stop the production at 500, and then bought by Pumabuild?
