Definitely too good to be in that yard but looks like it might be missing the right front wing? I actually hope that it is worse than it appears in this picture!

I’d agree, looks far better than the one Dad has welded up and is at paint stage now !!

Its been fairly comprehensively stripped - wonder if its a failed project or has been reshelled in to a better shell?
It does look good at first glance - surely someone that has gone to that much effort to strip it wouldn't then scrap it?

I think all of the parts for this were sold on ebay - I bought the radio with rare original dealer fit mounting ! Whoever owned it decided it was worth more in parts than the whole car. If so the interior was in very good nick as I remember.

You could be right there .. I saw those auctions on eBay and assumed someone had simply stripped a car for its parts.

That shell would be worth saving if for nothing else than just sections.
