Is that a MK1 that's been squared off at the front? Shame it was never finished and registered.

I must say that I thought it was a mk 3 that had been changed. But why would anyone square either of them off????????

Could be a MK3 actually, I plumped for MK1 as the seller said it'd been sat for over 30 years which pre-dates MK3's but then Ebay listings aren't always that accurate Wink

Looks like it's had the roof raised up as the screen seems a lot deeper then usual. Reminds me of a Hustler with the rear panels.

You have just gone through my thought process - butdecided that the bottom of the front was almost certainly mk3. But, as you say 30 years... a bit of an exageration if it is mk 3 based.

Whatever it is, I don't like it much! Evil or Very Mad

Fraid not James,

He's living somewhere in a block of flats near Bedworth.....sorry pronounced Beduth.

Seen his transport in a lock up there ...hehe

For my 2p'th, doesn't look like a mk2. The dashboard area / bottom of the windscreen is not deep enough.
Mk2's have about a 4" flat section with the angled tube coming down to form the bulkhead panel.



Also the rake on the bulkhead in the engine bay shot looks more in keeping with a mk1.

I'll get me coat...... getmecoat

I beg to differ (pulling hood of my anorak over my head) the clue is the rear end, a MK2 side rail runs straight to the back not stepped up over the rear wheels and if you enlarge the rear shot you can see the trailing arm bracket bolted direct to the farme i.e. no sub frame i.e. MK2 - I rest my case my lord!

Isn't that "trailing arm bracket" actually a rear subframe mounting trunnion? And the bolts for the rear trunnions are visible at the back.

I'd plump for a Mk1 with the main side rails modified to Mk2 style.

Your probably right Bob but I can not see the cross tube directly above the front wheels which would mean it was a Mk1 Question
