    Interesting find Dirk.

    Advert has very little info ... key issue will be the V5's. Whilst the red chassis has a fresh coat of paint it would be helpful to know what work was done on it, with pictures, before it was painted

    Yes, an interesting job lot - both with apparently intact screens, although their condition appears poor. Grey primer is a Mk2 (I wonder what colour it was originally - I can't tell if it is high-build primer or body colour under that grey!) and red oxide is a Mk1, with what looks like an Elam chassis plate on the inner front wing and the same enormous glass sunroof I had on my car...

    Both worth saving I would have thought

    I guess the rather extrovert bright red chassis belongs to red oxide?

    The chassis colour of choice for a hidden extrovert! Seriously I was thinking why myself, but that red, a bright green, or other crazy bright colour, and no underseal, you will soon see when rust starts. It is easy then to strip and repaint that section. I really hope the Nova's have V5's for their own sake.

    It looks like two brothers. I wonder if they had one each?

    I have asked the seller if he has V5's for both vehicles. Just awaiting a response

    I asked the same question and got a reply saying he was selling it on behalf of his father and giving me a number to ring for more info.

    Hahaha ... I asked the same question and suggested he should provide a lot more detail in the advert

    Never received a reply to my ebay query. I see the Novas still don't have any bids (with 5 days to go) but I stumbled across this tonight ...

    https://www.worthpoint.com/worthoped...nova-521215124

    The story seems to be at odds with what Phill was told ... but if that chassis is good and (ideally both) the Novas have V5's then they look like good projects.

    I did try to persuade Mrs Bluenova to let me bid, but she's having none of it and told me the divorce lawyer's phone number's on speed dial!!
