Looks very tidy actually. But then it is Spain, so it won't have been rained-on quite as much as a UK model. A little cleaning here and there and it might start to look like a much younger car.

What's the interior look like? Clean?

the inside is in very good condition. I got it professionally cleaned yesterday and it smells and looks great.
There's some scuffing on the driver's side bolster. Looks worse in the photo. But nothing else. I love the strong fabric with the attractive design that's used. I need some new mats for the driver and passenger wells.
Here are the only photos of the inside that I have so far (prior to cleaning).

Looks tidy!

The seat booster can be sorted with care and the correct treatments. Practical Classics recommend stuff from the Furniture Store (or a remarkably similar name) - you'll find 'em on eBay.
I like Twin Cams.... and Single Cams

As mentioned in my reply to your Streetwise thread, you are in the enviable position of being able to replace worn 'driver's' trim parts on your LHD car with unworn 'passenger's' trim parts from scrapped RHD cars in the UK. I am sure somebody will be able to find you a replacement seat back if you would like one :wink3
