    Looking at the state it's in and the fact that it requires a respray £2000 + seems a bit hopeful!

    With a V5 it’s worth a punt. Much better than an unregistered kit.

    It's Buy It Now for a straight £2,000. As a project car, like Steve says with a V5, I don't think that's unreasonable at all. And at that price you can afford to renovate it to exactly how you want it. If I didn't already have a Cabrio then I'd be tempted.

    I realise it's all down to personal choice but for me it wouldn't make sense. £3000 + for respray /ancillaries and it's looks like a CVH engine which again doesn't appeal to me. There are better Cabrio's out there for that sort of money.
    My son bought a sailing dinghy some years back which when he got it home his wife described as 'expensive firewood'! I rebuilt it for him and enjoyed doing so but it made no sense financially. As I said it's all down to YOUR choice.
