HB Viva GT - TYU 282F

Looks like it could be made nice without too much work. But the seller discloses that its a re-shell - which looks recent.

It's missing some hard to find GT trim items; GT dash pad (it's fitted with a standard one), centre console and gauges, GT door card inserts, steering wheel, seats and GT wheels & trims.

DVLA shows it as a 2000cc Vauxhall but this one is new to the Viva GT register this year, so examination of the V5 will be critical. It remains to be seen whether this car has a 937118V identity for a '68 GT. The re-shell together with all the missing GT parts raises questions.

Many GTs were re-shelled back in the day but it's been unlawful to re-shell using a secondhand shell since 1998.

On the face of it, this car consists of a good HB shell being sold with a Viva GT identity and Magnum engine and running gear - fitted with a Viva GT instrument binnacle.

Does anyone know anything about this car?
