Pah, you're only showing us the shiny bits... I'll bet that the strut tops are rotten as pears and covered in black underseal....:p

Seriously nice looking Mk1, used to woke on them a lot when I was young and you could buy them for fifty quid..

I will vouch for OGB on this as I have seen this car in the flesh (if its the same one) And it does actually have strut tops made of metal not rust;)

Rare breed them! Was there a 'fair' bit of welding involved getting it up to that condition? Must be a nightmare to get hold of replacement panels
