Why post something for sale if you’re not interested in responding to requests for more information?

For my own curiosity and maybe my lack if tak, what is a sensible £ offer by UK standards ?  ... how much are you willing to receive to depart of your Longchamp ? 

David, is the email address correct? I simply copied it and sent my message. Now again.

Cheers, Mark

Subject: Longchamp
The Car is LHD. Photos below. Floor well remade as well as spare wheel well and rear light holder. 
Engine number the same. 

I bought the car in 1979 from a Yugoslavian who used to race Panteras. 
I believe he bought it new. 
The mileage is 88k km 55,000 miles and that is supported by the MOT certificates. 
I started total restoration a couple of years ago and the restorer had a chronic heart problem and could no longer work. 
Obviously the car does not look good in current condition but you will be familiar with the problems with that era.
I am not certain what a sensible offer is but am selling and £22k has been suggested. I have two other De Tomaso owners coming to look at it next weekend one of whom has just finished restoring his Pantera and is looking for a new project. He also has a Mangusta. So I will have a better idea then. 
Cars available for sale in Europe seem to range in price from £60-120k and £150-200k for spyders. There was an unrestored spider in good condition being auctioned some weeks ago at Stoneleigh Abbey with an estimate of £100-120k. 
Prices seem at last to be moving for Longchamps. 
A local classic car work shop has 3 aluminium racing heads for this engine. The owner used to race Lola’s and he has always wanted to fit one to this car. 
Do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions. 
With best wishes

That is correct. The car was bought new in Italy and imported to England and first registered in England on 12 December 1978. 

I bought shortly thereafter in early January 1979.
