      Looks pretty much beyond saving, sadly. Worth up to £30k in good nick.

        Its the sort of motor I wish I could have gotten hold of before it got to that state - looking at the photo, it appears as though the inner structure is heavily compromised, and it would now take a fairly dedicated person to rebuild it. @Sandy Ground will almost certainly confirm this.

          What is it - or what was it? The twin headlights are ringing bells but not loud enough. :biggrin:

                Agreed. As to value as it stands. £3k probably just for the salvageable parts....The last time I saw one for sale that needed restoring it was in better condition than that one, but still brought £8k!!!!!!

                As the old saying goes, where theres muck, theres brass! :)

                  Checking on DVLA's website, it appears that it's never been SORNed, so there could be about 30 years back tax due :yikes:

                    A bit of body filler and a quick go with T Cut and it'll be as good as new.
