    IIRC This car was sitting in a barn for n years, so I am wondering what the chassis/underpinnings/interior are like; at 2.6k this seems like good value, but personally I wouldn't bid much higher without taking a look myself; bring your overalls.
    They don't mention the broken screen in the auction description

    And that’s near enough a grand to sort out straight away…

    This is maybe a good time to highlight (for anyone who isn’t already aware) how dangerous it can be if your bonnet isn’t secure and it flips back onto your windscreen whilst driving. .... Not only scary but very costly!!

    Note to self ... make my bonnet hinged at the front before I drive my Nova after her resto

    Thatís what happened to my first screen not long after getting the car ,the catch broke ,considering the original was a metal locker lock not designed to hold a car panel not surprising soon changed to forward hinged ,I think the screen cost around £100 then

    yeah, same here; bonnet through windscreen - the bonnet flew up and ended up on the road behind me... a very early lesson learnt `¨)
    Not sure where it says the windscreen is broken in the ad? but at a grand, doesn't it put into perspective the 'high value' of the rest of the car... Would be better indication if there were pics of the interior and state of the chassis though...

    I was expecting that in the last hours but it still has days to go.
    If itís real and isnít being influenced then it could well be a big sale price.

    If you look at the front view pics around drivers head area you can see the damage ,I asked the seller and they confirm its cracked
