Looks like a 90's shell rather than a '79.

By their nature, old rally cars seldom have their original panels.

That's not a Midas.

It's a Status Minus from the 80's.

There should be a chassis number on it roughly where the wiper motor should be. This one seems to be just the bare shell so the thing that is important is that it has been registered correctly at some point and that it has a V5 stating that it is a Minus otherwise it's going to be fairly hard to register and you could be hit with VRT, be given a 12 Reg. number, loose any chance of classic tax or insurance and face the prospect of a much harder NCT.

If you want something different from the same manufacturer, Status, then this is for sale on Ebay at present

Image

It's a Status 365, very rare car indeed, but even I think it's pig ugly.

Here's the link if you're interested
