Full years MOT, very good condition. Only little bit of rust is a couple of blisters under the paint on the bottom of the boot lid. 2 local owners from new, 55000 miles with old MOT's to back it up. All original. Drivers seats has a couple of splits in the vinyl but apart from that very good.

I know what I was planning on advertising it for but, wanted to see what you knowledgeable people thought?

Cheers, Josh.

I have to say that my initial thought was £3k too. Could go a bit higher (on ebay) too as some folk do get carried away when 'tax-exempt' is mentioned.

I was planning on advertising it for £2.5 - 3000. It's exactly as I bought it, all I've done is give it a check over, a clean & changed the clutch hose. The previous owner said it had new wings, I'm guessing the floor pans have probably been replaced. I think it's probably had a re-spray at some point, think it's 2k paint.

Love it! I only wish I had some money.... I would think you will get at least 2k for it, should be more.

Yes clips for the carpet and pressing holes with bungs in the corners of the floorpans.

The body number should be on the slam panel on the near side i think. (no, i am wrong, it should be above the rad on the inner wing).

The passengers side has the holes with bungs & clips I'm pretty sure from what I remember.
