Looks a dinky little thing, Mal - does'nt look to have sustained any body damage. Wonder why it's a 'Cat. C'......

84 makes it one of the last, but I dont know that it will be galv. A lot where ziebarted from new.

Unfortunately rot can be very hard to see with the body on as the chassis is an inverted top hat section with a top spot welded on, and these seams can blow apart but being so close too / tucked un inside the body its hard to see.

The bottom of the roll bar always rots like on GTE's too - but not hard to fix..
