Interesting combination of swivel sunvisor cant rails and earlier fixed sunvisors :o
Slightly difficult to see from the engine bay photo but it looks like the regulator is in the wrong place for an S.

It is a later shell as it has the reinforcements in the corners of the windscreen pillars either side of the sunvisors: the shape is different on earlier cars.

He’ll be a happy man to offload em that’s for sure, you’ve not seen the “997” yet! 🙈. Must be saving the best til last. :lol: The thing is sellers like this know full well they’re ringers, it’s not just a reshell thing, but are perfectly happy to try and find a gullible munchkin to hand over maximum wad.
