Last MOT in 2010 with quite a few advisories viability now depends upon further deterioration in the last 8 years. Might be a worthwhile project if someone lives reasonably local to it (Cornwall).

Rimmers still have the wheel centre caps available for £3 each.

This would be a nice project! An early one too (May 1990)

A few advisories on the last MOT but nothing major.

Full leather and rare all round electric windows. I like it.

Sorry don't own a trailer or ever driven with one, but would volunteer to ride shotgun with someone

Too much body work on this one for my liking as a project car - hockey sticks, etc. need repainting. The front wing rust, though small in area, looks quite bad and would need sorting out properly - possibly with some new metal welded in.

Then there's that "coolant leak" from the back of the engine. Is it really just a hose, or is it a head gasket problem? I suppose it's not a show-stopper if it's only a side failure, but would still need doing properly.

Newbie question alert - “Hockey Sticks”?
The thin, plastic body-colour painted trim that clips into the headlight bodies on both sides and fills the gap between the headlight and indicator lenses and the bumper.

That wheel arch on the N/S looks like it's had a bad filler repair and a paint-over. There's a rear mudguard hanging off too.

I'm just pointing out potentially costly issues that might mean we end up in the red. I'm up for the restoration, as other people seem to be.

9 bids from 3 bidders took it to £330. First and last from the same bidder, so it's hopefully gone to someone keen.
