That's so sad because it is probably rotten as hell underneath.

Who knows! Mk1 doors do rust but they seem to be fairly rust resilient, someone needs to go take a look

The seller will accept £100 for it, which is worth that in scrap

I would snap it up for parts, but alas I am short of space and its not local

Amazingly, this car started with fresh fuel and a battery, lifted and drove...before popping a pipe

Asides the frilly doors and surface rust to the A pillar, its solid and will be restored!
