Though the OP doesnt directly say so, my guess is that the price wasnt agreed because the postage wasnt known. In this case there was no contract because there was no agreed consideration.

Not nice though. My phone is set to automatically record all calls so with that evidence of unacceptable hehavious I wouldnt hesistate to name the individual

This happens in property selling - gazumping. Which is not illegal in England.

Unfortunately the guilty party is going to be one of only a very few advertising parts suitable for the OP's car in Miscellany and all will be placed under suspicion.

Houses and land in England are all sold ‘subject to contract’ and so the sale of goods act doesn’t apply

Slightly different in Scotland

Could this also apply to goods like this, if the words 'subject to contract' were spoken at the time of the offer and acceptance or is this the actual contract and no further contract can be made?

Tricky one.......if it was purely done over the phone and you didn’t record the conversation....which why should you.....how do you prove anything?

I was gazuumped by a well known dealer a few years ago. NOT a Morgan dealer I hasten to add. Agreed that I’d have the car on Saturday, said I’d arrange for funds for the deposit on Monday only to arrive on Monday to be told it had been sold later on Saturday! I was not amused and they lost my business.

Yes we have all been looking through the adverts see who it could be.So not fair on the other advertisers.
But we are only hearing one side of a story !

Thanks for your words guys, 99% agree, that this is poor form!
