Hello everybody. I'm Colin and my wife and I have been fans of the RM for a long time now.
We're considering buying one that isn't too far away from us and is at what we thing seems a reasonable price but given that it's not that common a car I was wondering if anyone here might know anything about this particular one.
Colin, These are generally sturdy, reliable cars. Weak points are around the wooden body frame, especially the A pillars and the rear window frame. The boot floor and the spare wheel aperture behind the rear number plate are also prone to rust. Mechanically, check for decent oil pressure when the engine is hot, both on the road and at tickover. Otherwise, the same checks as applicable on any older car are valid and necessary. I don't know the car you are interested in, but it looks a good example from the photos. I have seen it for sale for quite a while, so it might be worth questioning why it has not sold. Rob
