Sorry not sure how to add the pictures or links, it just puts the loading bar on, I have a link to an auction website that the previous owner bought it from. It looks the same but I polished it and put some spot lamps on. https://www.copart.co.uk/lot/25833007/Photos

It would be useful to know roughly where you are in the world, and what sort of price you have in mind.

Looks quite smart and original. What do you know of its history/restoration work ?.

I have a file of history old mots from its first one to 1981 then jumps to 2005/6/7most early service records including new gear box in 1972 all of these have been laminated original hand books. It was parked in a barn in 2007 for 10 years as the owner passed away and was put into the auction a garage then bought it and sold it to the previous owner who did some not to good repairs to get a mot on it and I bought it in July. It has had quite a bit of welding to the floor pans, the sills look to be good, a patch on the rear sub frame front look ok. I have just removed the bulkhead to repair the heater box area, new carpet set new fuel sender unit and gauge, tank pipes new dyno and starter, new air box new clutch slave new speedo cable, new front screen rubber new rear rubber comes tomorrow, second hand horn push and indicator stalk on its way it needs new side rubbers for the external door windows and 2 cv boots
