A new one on ebay "Very Original - Original Split Screen" - So not replaced with a curved one? That said I've seen one's that appear to have been converted the other way.

All original - not modified in any way seems to mean it's had a full set of later type wings when applied to a SII

£3000 for a basket case with a bent shell? Roof damaged, shell so twisted the door and bonnet won't shut. Good parts car though...

It's the usual "the registration number is worth £2000" :lol:
Forgetting that you can only transfer the registration number (assuming anybody actually wants to buy it!) once the car has gained an MOT. Which will cost even more :shock:
The car is a rusted out wreck which will never be a viable restoration project unfortunately :(

Yes the ‘number plate valued at £2000’ postings seem to be on the increase...but it’s the ‘What’s this worth’ and ‘For Sale PM me’ posts which really annoy me :evil: and I’m not even looking to buy :lol:

Here's another classic I have just read.

"paintwork and interior both good, may require minimal small cosmetic welding in places."
