    Junk yard, no...but in that 2 tone color you can use it as a taxi. :)

    I was repeatedly flagged down... taxis look like that here, red body, silver rood, black bumpers, alloy wheels:

    And they move at F-speed too.

    Yes it was. They put it in flush with the bodywork at the top (instead of finisher's recess). This meant that the lower middle section of the glass was in contact with the cowl > cracks appeared.

    Rust : The usual places well known by mondial owners....some a little less, some a little more. And that crack on the steering support...strange place. Good luck with the repair (bill). Maybe time to put here back in original color. And some 3.2 bumpers front and back. Less weight and a bit nicer.

    Original color for sure - inside and out. Here some of the body panels I have collected over the years:

    Some damage on the doors that will need attention, but the rest was in excellent condition

    Guido yes, we did remove the rear glass, only the glued in side glasses were left in place because there was no sign of corrosion anywhere.
    The front wheel arches and the removable sections of the rear wheel arches on my car are FRP parts. I have pictures of these later during the restoration process.
