The car has been in a drivers side front shunt as the door hinges don't match the jig



Whereas the passenger side fits perfectly

The boot floor and the rear firewall have been removed exposing the rear chassis sections.

As both rear chassis sections had corrosion, along side the restoration some modifications will also take place, including installing rear turrets.







So both original rear chassis sections have been removed -
