It seems to be a mark 1 with a late mark 2 dash and murena wheels and mirrors.  It doesn't seem to have any headlights Undecided

The inner wings have been welded so it is obviously not as rust free as the seller claims.  As for the Abarth bit, I know Abarth worked with Simca but as far as I know never with Matra.

Having said all that, it could be a good project car for someone if the chassis is solid as even mark 1 plastic bits are not that hard to source.

Well..  it looks neat enough.. but I think its a shame that it has been modified in this way.... makes it look like a kit-car

If you take a closer look at the pictures of the front compartment with the spare wheel, you will see that there has been done some very crude weldings on the right inner wing. Further it is obvious that there is rust just under the speedo cable, oter areas of the visible chassis have a brownish (rust) color. If the rest of the chassis is of the same quality, the car is not worth a penny.
