No mention of replacement shell in the listing.
Wrong gutters, no drip rails and looks like a square tunnel.


That definitely looks like £6000 worth


FTFY. :lol:

David, well spotted, it is a mark 4, no hydrolastic (all Mk3 Ss had hydrolastic) it has no rad / engine cowl and has the Mk4 large petals :(

Another fake I'm afraid to say :(

Looks nice enough to me. Nice to see a what appears to be a genuine car :D


It does! BUT why do sellers so often go to the trouble of showing really nice photos of the carpet and not the fekin important bit under it! :lol:

Yes it is and despite the rust free claim, the shell has obviously been poorly welded in the past.

It looks to have had a hard life. :?
