Looks like a Mk2 rear window to go with the boot lid, cut out front panel, courtesy light holes in a-pillar, so it is a re-shell. Nasty 6 non-vent sills as well.

Don't mention the upside down door cards

Middle of '62, though I wonder if its been removed and reattached.

It doesn't look pressed tight enough onto the inner wing.
