found 411 variant been sat for aprox 35 years

Post by rob75bay » 21st June 2017 - 12:59pm

hi guys newbie here,found this approx 9 years ago and was told i could have it back then,but due to circumstances i was never able to get it,but now i have the option again to have it!! was excited but then i start having a look around it and have found the true extent of it sitting for 35years!!its a 1 owner car since new and appears to have good options,the question is now do i have it dug out and maybe sell it on to someone who may want to give the old beast a new life,or do i break it for parts to help the limited numbers that are on the road to stay on the road,i did think about restoring it myself but after doing lots of searches it would appear you cant buy anything for these anymore,any help would be appreciated

Err Wow!
Its obviously well beyond any sort of economic restoration, but there maybe a few parts worth saving.
If you can get it out...

i look forward to the photos when you remove it. I always want to see a car restored. But you would need plenty for spare hours to sort that out!

it would be a cracking car to restore but the cost would be far to great for what its worth,im poping down there a week monday to start digging it out,might be some decent bits on it?did anyone notice the bug shield on the front bumper?

I think it's still sitting in the hedge.
