GTC (E?) Spotted

Hope everybody is well and avoiding the beast.
A couple of days ago, I spotted a rather forlorn looking GTC (E?) in a local yard.
If anybody is interested, I can pop over on Monday and take some pictures for the forum.
Stay safe!

scimmy_man - where do I find the chassis number?
Mark - in a yard on the west side of the River Hull, north of Scott's Street bridge.

Chassis number on a riveted plate in the engine bay, just next to the alternator.

Yard closed to-day (until ?).
If it's any use, Reg'n is DHU961W.
Thanks for the info gtce8. If I ever get into the yard, it could be useful.

It’s a 3 litre, so presumably an SE6a?
