You could have an impressive collection if parts were easy to come by (like MGB)!!

God knows why someone thought it was a good idea to stick the rear numberplate on the bootlid

i managed to spend a bit of time this week (ten mins!!!) put a ittle diesel down plug holes, oil is clean, next day tried the pulley and the engine turns over freely so good new on that, ill try to get the paperwork trail started.
yes numberplate must have been one of those ideas that seemed good at the time!

Probably had a towbar at some stage. This was the standard mod on Rapiers so you could see the plate.

Great looking car. This would be a beauty when restored. Whats the colour, Sundance yellow same as the avenger tigers?

Now have reg doc in my name, 1 previous owner . for sale £4500.
as said above will need welding to rear end/spring hangers/valance and probably sills as they have been done in the past.Rear edge of front wings depending how fussy, rear arches fluffy, front of front wings are very good as they go, interior is good and original, glen mason has seen the car in person. You may think it pricey but its yellow and thats how much to make me part with it! or it will get in the queue for work as and when!!!!! (2021?)i can do the work for a buyer , call or email for more details, i know you will want to ask "how much to fix it?" but thats subjective , 1000-3000 depending on how much you want done and to what stage/standard, to many variables, if you are interested come and have a look rgds Paul
