Makes my recent win look positively expensive… 

Nah, both proven low milers and I'm sure this'll go for close to yours. This seems to need a lot of welding too, and he doesn't have an Irmscher leather wheel! :D

On second thoughts, looking at the pictures of the underside the seller has now uploaded, it shouldn't go for near the price of the exclusive--looks to be quite the undertaking to get that solid again!

That’s a decent set of photos the seller has uploaded now, they show what needs to be done quite well. It certainly isn't going to be heading off to the MOT centre anytime soon. Be a good project car though as parts of it look quite good. Engine bay looks like someone took care of it back in the day and the interior certainly looks like the 35k mileage is genuine.

Pretty good if you think what a proven 35k GTE is objectively worth, even if you had to pay to have a lot of that welding done by a small restoration business, you'd still be quids in unless there's anything even nastier hidden to make it terminal. Do you reckon this is the result of driving on salt/grit roads then putting the car away wet? Also, I wonder why the headlamp is actually missing, instead of supplied broken or rusted out?

Completely agree on price.

I have seen issues with cars parked on gravel and sheeted with none breathing tarpaulins. Weeds grow under the car and the Tarpaulin traps moisture. So owner thought they was doing the right thing, but woukd have survived better been left uncovered.
