Single exhaust looks very bizarre too, i considered asking BHCC about it, then I remembered I had to swap my car recently so cant afford to save this one.
Damn steering rack failure of my old fiesta  Angry

I do agree Chris P, price is a bit steep for what has been done to it

Nice looking car @ $36,500 though chassis not brilliant for that kind of money: https://www.beverlyhillscarclub.com/1982...-12560.htm

I think this is indicative of where prices are going, and alongside it, chassis'. 

IF it runs and everything else (bar those louvres) is okay, it's another £3k or so to get the chassis refurbished, and "many hours" to strip and refit. I expect that'll sell. Oddly given the spare wheel well looks like it's seen something rusty, I wonder if it's been up to the doors in water...

One I spotted today for $29,950 ok for light resto overall but the doors have me puzzled either they're twisted or need some adjusting.

interior looks to be mostly in one piece, only work is on the binnacle and dash... typical heat damage.
underside needs a bit of tlc as it looks rough.

I would be more concerned that they dont mention its "mechanically sound". Usually when thats not mentioned it means the engine is seized.

Their term of mechanically sound means the engine turns and not nessassary that the car runs.
