Anyone for a project/holiday in Greece - not an XM!

I just happened to spot this on the Bay and could not resist posting up!

There is certainly some serious rust to address and possibly a bit more power required with that DS? engine installed. I think the rather gruesome colour could be the least of the problems!

Good grief, that's gruesome.
I see there's an oppo in the background in matching outfit :? and about the same state of repair...

I cant see anything other than a parts car there... and a bit expensive for that. I occasionally watch leboncoin for non-running SMs, and something with good panels and the correct engine (but needing a full restoration) is probably worth €8,000 to €12,000 depending on what is missing or obviously damaged.

A couple of years ago, there was a pair advertised, one low mileage but with moderate front end crash damage, the other straight but with no engine, €8,500 the pair. I had to remind myself that I do not like the styling.
