Can I be 'that guy' again? y'know, that guy who mentions the BIVA every time he sees a car with the bulkhead chopped out? Can I ? Pleeeaaase ??

hmmmm well I am 'That guy' and yes this car is a total BIVA failure... so NOT mot exempt, and NOT tax exempt as it now should have no I.D. as the bodyshell has been butchered. So is in fact NOT a viva anymore....

But despite all that, if you wanted to buy it an not declare the mods then there are other glaring issues with it, namely the god awful bulkhead welding, if it stands that proud then there is no penetration, the bead is basically just sitting on top, and if the bulkhead and tunnel have been built like that it will just fly apart if you happened to have a crash in it, or probably give way through 'enthusiastic' driving. So if what you can see looks badly done, what about the bits you can't see???
Oh...and that gear lever looks very close to the handbrake lever... all in all a badly designed and badly executed set of mods...definately NOT 5k's worth..... it's basically scrap with a load of parts.

Senator engine, if you were doing the work to put that engine in, you may as well have gone for the 24v instead of the 12v

I notice it is 'J' reg yet has some of the hallmarks of a post '74 shell including the original colour.
