    Oh my..

    But;
    So it's a shell, don't send emails asking about anything else, oh and there's also a fully rebuilt engine and interior and trim?

    Reading the listing it will go on an age-related plate, not a 59 plate.

    Worth nothing without some form of "proof" that its been built up from a brand-new shell eg photographic build etc.
    Lets face it, it won't be built up with all new parts, either, will it? So it would be a zero miles car where most of the running gear could have done significant mileage.....

    This will go to someone who won't be building it with second-hand ball joints and a 20 year old gearbox, don't worry about that.

    I'd wait until March to register it anyway, if it gets a fresh plate: MK1 0OMF maybe?

    Without a wad of reciepts proving that everything is new, won't it end up on a Q plate?

    I am not, unfortunately, but I know exactly the sort of person/outfit that will buy it and look forward to seeing the end result.

    OK, so I asked around a bit:

    Most likely would seem to be the VIN typo on the V5.
