Just supposing it doesn't sell... it's worth keeping the rear lights, any other spares and the unopened toolkit as they'll only get crushed.

Somebody will have those.

And don't forget the plastic trims under the headlights for the previous poster :D

It's been retro fitted with a SRS steering wheel, that's worth saving, they're expensive! :scared

Why fit all that rubbish to it and not bother about the hood? :headbanging

There was some one posting on here a couple of years ago tallking about fitting aset of white dials, wonder if this is the same car?

What did it fail on? [apart from taste? :D ]

P.S I would only keep those rear light clusters in a darkened room.... and never take em' out.

I think the kit was fitted then for some reason its just been left, the roof has rotted out since being sat for years. It hasnt been for a MOT in years.

That's right! in fact it haas no MOT history at all acording to the DVLA site; perhaps it was first registered in N.I?; no can't be because date of first registration is March 1996, but no history must have been taken across there at some point?

The SRS steering wheel is a factory fit then.

I think the online MOT history of a car only goes back to around 2007 or thereabouts - so this car has been off the road since at least then.
