Ebay is a  good place to start looking. Best to watch for a while to see prices usually paid. Be aware that owning a C5 can damage your wealth. ;D

Hello there

I am in north Manchester, Chadderton.

I think C5's are the cheapest entry into old vehicles.

I have an MG too and that is deffo a money pit.  There is nothing that is very expensive to repair or replace on a C5

Not long ago my friends bought a restored one off Chas on the forum here.  It was a good price and hasn't cost a penny since.

Unless you are really on a tight budget I would have no hesitation.

I used to work at the concrete plant for Tilcon on Hunt Lane Chaddy. Do you use the C5 in the parks or is it just for show!!! How much was your mates restored one?

I know the Hunt Lane Tavern.  I bet that is near?

Chas, I can't remember how much one of your restored C5's are?

I don't use it everyday just for fun really.
