    I vaguelly recall seeing this one before...
    There appears to be enough of the chassis left for a vin plate to exist, so obtaining registration details shouldn't be impossible (if necessary).
    Unfortunately (for me), this kind of project is beyond my means, but I really hope someone buys the old girl and restores her since it would put another Nova back on the road

    Worth a punt if anyone fancies a complete rebuild, but it's a pity about the screen, and it's not clear whether it simply needs new floorpans or the chassis is not worth saving. I'd get more details and photos if I was going to bid

    Absolutely love it - when was the last time you saw a complete ADD Mk1? The only item(s) missing appear to be the dash pods - and the seats.

    I like the idea of the screen trim - it's made from aluminium strips, cut to size and screwed down around the edge of the screen. So I am thinking, polished mirror finish, clear coat and bond over the screen, instead of wood screws

    Very similar to the stainless steel trims used on early bonded screen cars, like Countach 002...

    One of our members with the Yellow Avante did this years ago (no not Dirk), the other one...Phil's

    It did look well finished, he bonded the aluminum strips down if memory serves me correctly
