I went to look at that when it was for sale in 2013. The photos are a reasonable representation but I do remember the chassis being a little crusty. It's also worth mentioning that due to it being chassis #21, it probably has the Sabre rear suspension layout. I honestly can't remember.

At chassis no 21 one of the very first ever Coupes. Has to be worth saving.

blimey that still up for sale, thought where you looked at it had sold it, prehaps mistaken though it's a fair drag to there from where it was located having driven down to Leominster for the past year on a housing scheme

Tbh I didn't think it sold. It was advertised quite expensively at the time and the rear axle wasn't fitted to it. I can't remember if that was due to it needing rebuild or If it was the start of an intended restoration.
