Are there any differences in Rhodesian and UK Mk1 shells ?

Differences in the way some panels are welded has been mentioned by a good friend.

Could the shells be used for a UK Mk1 ?

Cheers

Andrew

If you were to use an SA shell for a MK1 restoration, I doubt that anyone would notice the difference.

SA cars should have an SA chassis plate & VIN. Yours could be a UK car that went out as a private export then came back.

Don't they have holes in different places? E.g. the UK ones generally have many more holes...

Mainly with raggedy rusty edges.

:lol: :lol:

I can vouch for that Mark :shock:

I've seen some with a UK chassis number and some with a 'Made in Rhodesia' plate on them.

they normally chop the top bit of the English chassis plate off though I think?

a mate of mine used to have a tidy 2 door 1100 that was made in Rhodesia, it came back over here and some prat crashed into it and wrote it off
