Hmm... it reminds me of the gap-toothed Ambassador Mark 4.

True, that is what inspired this design. It was popular around that time as well.

Hey, by "accident" I just spoke to someone whom I realised is the owner of both the cars!

He's asked me to find out what more you want from it.

Well I need 3 wheel rims, (assuming they are in usable condition), "towel rail" bumpers, door handles (if they are pull type). I dont suppose theres much else I can salvage for my model. Perhaps the quarter window would come in handy.

It doesnt seem to have any of the parts you mention apart from the quarter glass.....
What bout the steering wheel, gearstick and one of the switches on the dash (seems original)....?

Its quite likely that the bumpers and things were removed and the car is partly dismantled. I would mind taking the above mentioned items as spares, if they are reasonably priced. What I need are the wheel rims. Im currently running 16s at the rear and 15s up front...looks awesome though!
