It's a 5a not a 5 so it can't be a 1970 model.

Well I made a cheeky offer for it at parts-car money, as there's no indication of registration documents, whether it runs or even if there's a complete engine under the bonnet.

Certainly looks like it. Is the blue one in the background a coupe?

My offer didn't go down well, but the seller needs to put more detail in his advert to convince viewers this isn't just another basket-case breaker.
