you should put those opening rear quarter lights on uk ebay as the uk vivas/magnums never had them fitted! so i should think you could get some good money for them!

I once went to see a red Magnum coupe which had opening rear quarters fitted. And I think Les Irvings' coupe has them as well - I did wonder if it's the same car.
