BODY : MOT man very impressed with soundness of underbody, cabin floors all good, (if they say 'its never been welded' its probably a thin crust of metal all over after 65 years! ) - this one has had new metal in critical areas to reinforce, rust treatment & resin based undersealing done. Doors and wings, sills, arches, boot or inner wings have no rusty spots or bubbles. Paint is about 5 years old and excellent, but not polished for photos.
