Blimey, it's reached over £750 - madness. It is sad to see it in such a mess. But, quite what can be salvaged I don't know. Certainly it has terminal rust - its back is broken and the bulkhead beyond repair. The springs look badly rusted and the axle has separated from the chassis. The wings are rubbish and the doors beyond repair. When the chassis is that far gone, it can be assumed that things like the fuel tanks will be as well, there will be heavy corrosion between the birmabright and steel, the plastic is all faded and worn - perhaps the windscreens will clean up and return a tenner!
Best,
Fred

To be honest, it’s an ID and a few parts (engine, gearbox, axles) towards a project. At the very least it needs a new chassis, several body panels, and countless interior bits and a roof to make it whole. Come to think of it that’s not far off the description of mine when I bought it. 750 quid doesn’t buy you a lot these days does it.

I think that at £7.50 I would have to think twice.
