    Aye I noticed that mate so I read the ad a couple more times.

    Admittedly it ain't clear but towards the end the seller suggests they had included the last picture of another restored Civic to show what can be achieved with the one they're selling.... I presume.....

    It isn't written well and that probably will put people off.

    I'm sure I've seen that first Civic before"WEV 905S" is ringing very vague bells for some reason

    You wonder why with a misleading advert like that.

    I think he's in cloud cuckoo land to be fair. £1000 for a car that needs a full restoration or this Honda Civic For Sale (1979) on Car And Classic UK [C686028] for £250 more??? He reckons it would be worth £8K once it's done as well! lol

    the advert states very clearly: 'It's potential to use as a rolling resto or put all your time/effort and have it looking amazing. The last picture shows what I wanted to do with it and with this kind of level of restoration you'd have something worth around 8k if you're looking at this from a financial point of view'

    What we looking at tops, given the state it's in?

    £150 - 200 notes as a shell - spares or repair, i.e. full strip down, shell acid dip and rebuild from the ground up?
