Shame it has lost its ID & everything has been thrown away. I would say looking at a few tell tale signs this is an early shell, maybe one of the first 2000?

Can the registration number be traced from the chassis number easily and applied for ? that's if the chassis number is there.

Chassis plate and body number are both missing. Only the last few cars had anything stamped into the body.
Besides, what's the point? The car has ceased to exist unless you can find a skip full of engine, gearbox, axle & all the rest. Let it rest. At least it's not a another 1500 getting killed to save a sprint.

I'm tempted to bid to ensure a sprint stays dead and save a 1500 with it.

Everything went into a skip, but there was a serious issue with the waste company taking it away as the waste was only meant for building materials.
The company/ driver made the owner of the car remove everything related to the car, pretty silly of him really as it was sat on top of all of the rubbish.

The son of the owner approached me and asked if I was interested in buying the items.
I purchased the whole lot.

So are you saying that you have the rest of the car? If so, how complete?

That puts a rather different complexion on things. Engine?
I hope you are in a position to bid and wish you the very best of luck Hobo.
