What happened looks like a lot of oil about?

New one looks pretty clean bar the rear arches, saw it on Pistonheads - good buy :)

Im not sure when he'l be back on again so i'll answer. The hatch had bent the boot floor and all the mounts for the leaf springs. It was sold on to be stripped and scrapped. Thomas...........

I doubt it as it's not advertised anywhere, and all the parts are kept rather than sold on :) Thomas................
