Hello Bleasie the photos you listed are of the eBay details of which I purchased the car, looked a lot better in the pics than it really was. Car was sunk in the mud of the field of where it was parked. Took a lot of pull from my Nissan Navara to pull it out. Tyres flat and perished and brakes all seized up.
Really not economical to repair, but I love a challenge. Have been doing quite a lot to it and it’s beginning to show rewards. I love the look of the car, at present have sourced new back valence, two sill ends and new panels for the radius arms area, so will be welding for quite a few evenings.
Car is a one owner, with 48,000 genuine miles, complete service history was supplied with car.
Tax on the car ran out in 1999, so I assumed the car was parked up then, been sat thier for 18 years. The Old Gent that owned it said it ran out of petrol, and he never got round to putting any in.
