If anyone knows of a decent Clio Williams for sale give me a nod please
Mick @ Diamond is a Williams man ... Might be more plugged in then most of us..
Are they fetching strong money now ??
That's a tall order, but as my 5GTT proved they are out there if you are prepared to wait. 1, 2 or 3 or not fussed?
It's the same old story, there are some out there, they are a different story to the later Clios though as rust seems to be a common problem. Obviously age is against them too. Some giddy prices of £15k plus. Quite a few have gone lately for 6-8k
I commented on your post on the Williams Club this morning. There are some good examples out there but there are some right crap ones too lol. All comes down to how much you want to pay and do you want to do any resto work.
A good one will probably set you back £6k I think, a mint one is around £12-£15k
Thanks Chris, not sure I'm actually brave enough to take the task on !

Theres a couple for sale at Anglia car auctions soon..
The barn find Williams looks like a good project if you have deep pockets and plenty of time...........
Yes, I know how these projects can run away with money sometimes though.
I don't know this one, it just appeared for sale on one of the Renault 5 pages.
Thanks. I'm just beginning to wonder whether I need to be raising my expectations in terms of what I'm going to perhaps have to spend to get something I'm not going to have to spend a fortune on anyway !!!
That would be my thinking. When I bought the 5 I mulled over a project that I could build and learn or I could try to find a rare (then) totally original model. I paid what was then a huge sum for a very low mileage almost completely original version and have avoided paying for example £300 for a gear knob etc etc. Parts will be rare, hard to find and expensive, good paint is expensive, welding is expensive, time is expensive and even then it will not be original. I'd be looking to spend well over the above.
That ebay linked Williams looks a nice example, no mention of cambelt though so that would be a question. Heatshield is present and so is the suit carrier parcel shelf which is a bonus. Also nice to see the alloys have the chrome lip
Father in law bought one last year, he knows his stuff but it still required a fair bit bodywork repair/paint, the sills were particularly bad. It's cool as fuck but really isn't a patch on a Trophy for driver enjoyment. Certainly wouldn't swap mine for his.
I'm wondering whether the reality of ownership isnt actually quite up to the aspiration of it !!
Honestly, having the Trophy and driving them back to back it would for me despite coveting the Williams for many years (had a Clio 16v in the mid 90's). I still want one but not instead of a T.
