I am sending my DS23 to the UK in a container, and have spare space.I also have 3 body shells , in primer, all original, needing no welding. A 1965 Mk1 , a 1968 Mk2 and a 1971 van.the paperwork for these disappeared years ago, although they all have VIN tags. I am considering using them to fill the container as used body panels, but wonder what they would be worth?? Any ideas?

I also have 6 rear subframes, wet and dry, rust free in primer. The shells are in the same condition as this one but with the parcel shelf intact

Very difficult to put values on them, but rust free, or near rust free shells are very sought after. I am absolutely certain that there would be a healthy profit in them once they arrived in the UK.

Put me down for a dry rear subframe if you do ship :)

If no-one else is going to have a go, as a first stab at a price, stake in the ground etc, I would say the saloon shells are worth £6-8k each without doors boot and bonnet.

If your going to chop them, then not worth a lot.

Take 2 containers and send the body shells complete Maximum profit and little extra outlay
