Wow just read some reviews, they make for interesting reading, a guy bought a van as damaged repairable did the repairs only to be told by the DVLA that it needed to be scrapped!
to be fair you should check what 'Category' it is listed at before purchase???

Ss1 for sale on Copart

doesn't look too bad as a project car?
certainly more repairable than the Rialto that is also listed :wink:

why hide the reg number and chassis number on the 'list of details' then add a photo of both :shock:

Oaksey's XJ6

I like the lateral thinking, beats just balancing on a section of 4" x 2" timber but I'd be keeping fingers well clear in case it topples , that would spoil things a touch :shock:

QRG sill section SS1

I made stainless covers for number one - that was to display it at the NEC, not to circumvent an MOT regulation. If the outside of the sills have gone, the inners (and therefore the rear suspension mounting) will be severely weakened. I wasn't suggesting for a moment that this would / could be an M...
