I'll tell you what, let's move this to valuations section.  That's what it's there for, for people that don't know what their car is worth.

 

Moved.

I doubt you'll get more than a 3 figure sum for it in that condition.

It wants a whole front end.

 

There's no way of fixing that without taking the wings off

 

It might have an MOT but it's certainly not road worthy

 

It's worth £500

okay well its going for mot tomorrow so we will find out if its road worthy to me it look liek there is no structural damage and as a guy who used to do mots i cant see why that wouldn't pass its rust on a non structural body panel if it was on the frame or sub frames i would understand

You get told to imagine a ball for an idea of reference to the 30cm in all directions on the testers course. If you cover all the structural points and seat belt mounts etc of a car, theres not that much that doesnt get cover by the 30cm from each point.

A few more photos without filters will give more of a perspective on what it is worth. Get some pics of the footwells, boot, sills, under the wingsand the a panels/doors and posts and it will get more of a perspective on a price.

but i will get images as the chance you believe me that the rest car is sound is about a 1% chance u do but hey
