Bargain price even if it had bad paint, bad suspension , looming head gasket...and interior wear....

Shock s may have been replaced in 2010 according to MOT online check

based on quick read of the MOT certs youd want to know what caused the rear underside damage and by the time youve added the HG and suspension bits you may as well wait for a genuine sub 50k car to come along at >13k
