Nice find, Tom. What a stunner.

Guide price £35-£40 K

I missed the auction today, we'll have to wait to see what it sold for.

:agree: Looks very good, but for me better on original wheels. Which are 13 inch according to photos on their web, not 15" like Harry said.

I watched a few cars go through, mostly they sold below the lower estimate.

The first thing I would be doing is swap the wheels for the originals.
Apart from those wheels it looks superb.

What's the gizmo under the dash, near the hazard lights switch? Pity if there are mounting holes etc on a car like that.

I did the same Jason, but couldn't quite make out if it was stereo related, or a CB even. I think I'd remove that perhaps as well as the wheels.

It does just look wrong , I use a iPad now as I can’t see anything on my phone as my eyes can’t read the words 🤣🤣🤣
The wheels I would change and the front grill .
