This car is of interest to me
[www.ebay.co.uk]
but the seller has zero feedback and the photos are poor.

Looks as if it's been sitting a while. Wouldn't want to find I've bought a backyard rustheap.

Does anyone live nearby who could go and take a look at it for me? More than expenses happily paid.
Or know a shop that might make an inspection? I see quite a few shops in the area, but no idea of their abilities, although Ace Customs in St Clarita looks promising

Thankyou

Now that could be a find. Love those old Jag sedans.

If a California car unlikely a rust bucket. Very cool potential

No go.
The seller doesn't reply to questions.
And it has a 'Reconstructed' title, which I'm told will make it pretty well impossible to register over here.
Unfortunately the Gubmt is interfering much more nowadays in the custom/hotrod hobby, and importing a modified historic car is now very difficult.
So no go.
Shame
