Should have included 'of that era' I dare say. Also just realised the start of my phone number has too many sevens!

It's zero 7889 896791.

Thanks

Well, structurally it is sound and solid, I had it in to a respected local classic car garage last year for a couple of thousand pounds worth of work on its mechanicals, and whilst it was up in the air he remarked how clean it is for a 53 year old. The only rust it has is superficial on a few panels, par for the course really, I like to think of it as patina! This includes the front corners of each wing, a little under the chrome trim towards the rear of the car, and a panel under the rear corner of the back bumper, where someone has nudged a curb parking it and crumpled the panel a bit. To have the main bits sorted I've been quoted £500-600, which includes proper cutting out affected areas, welding in new then painting them back in to match the rest of the colour. Along with one door being a slightly different shade and some small rechroming on front bumper, the lot can be done for under £1,000.

These little cosmetic bits are the only things letting it down. Getting these sorted would make the car totally presentable for weddings, prom and movie/TV hire, which all pay several hundred pounds per day. This would be my plan if I was to keep the car.

By the way I have messaged you on eBay chap.
