Bit more than "slightly recommissioned"

To be fair description is quite comprehensive.

"around 2005 Aaron Ross bought the car & carried out a major rebuild. At this point the car was seam welded & the roll cage was modified with additional bracing to front & rear"

"The front door cards are original, as well as the dash. The rest of the MG Maestro interior was sourced & the car was painted to its original challenge colours of 1986 to 89. "
