I’ve been eyeing up this poor abandoned little fella for the last three years - just around the corner from me. 102490 (‘miles’ ?), MoT expired Dec 2018, but a remarkably clean MoT history prior to that (which is the main temptation). Knocked the door and spoke to the owner a few weeks ago - he wants rid.
On a quick inspection, lower rear sills and rear arches looked to be in really good shape, and original. Some bad corrosion at the bottom of that front O/S wing - but because of the lacquer peel, prob best option is just to bolt a new red one on. Some very expensive wheels/tyres recently bolted on but never run - and a proper roll bar in place.
I’m going to see it properly Thurs PM, get underneath it and check out the usual suspect rot areas - and provided we can agree a price (he wants £1.2 - I’m thinking 750!) - I think it’ll be moving to my drive
