The owner's name is Mark. He says it's a '76 - I will admit I know very little about classics so it might not be. It's right-hand drive, the motor is an 998 cc with a Weber carb (I believe).

The paint is VERY close to perfect. It's a beautiful car.

He could have donea LOT of work to make a 76 look like a newer late 80's model. but it's just not practical. Either way, it looks awesome. I love it.

Yup. Definitely MK4 tail lights and boot lid. It's a sweet car though. I'd take one.

The red rear fog is cool looking, but useless IMO. lol. I have one, Chase has one... doesn't help with backing up. Might help with rear visibility to other drivers, but I have other plans to fix that

If you go rear fog, go clear.

Maybe I'll just take one of my spare driving lights and toss it back there

Some guys do just that. The old rally lights were actually mounted to the boot lid.
