Hi,

This appeals a great deal, it was restored some time ago and has sat out of use for around thirteen years or so. Photos of the interior wouldn't go amiss, but if the bidding remains sensible it'd be a fun vehicle to take on.

It will probably be strong but the sill does not look very original. Too square, and the join with the rear wing is a bit questionable. Is the non original sill strip there to hide something? How is the other side?
That said if you are not fussy about things like that (I would) it might be a good car. Pretty rare.

Saying it was restored 20 years ago it doesn't say much for that restoration to me.

Yes, that sill is flat and it should be totally curved. The trim on it is also non-standard.
