The body is exceptional for the age with lovely original paint... One rear wing a bit crinkled... You def wouldn't want to paint it. A new rear crossmember and apart from that it has had no other welding and I don't believe it needs any.
The bulkhead is good,,,, previous owner did some welding but again executed well (butt welds rather that covering rust with patches) The engine is a 2 1/4 litre petrol and runs sweetly. The gearbox is from a series2 and works well except will gently jump out of second. The brakes work but not the sharpest. The wiring loom is poor. All in all a lovely little project!
