Does anyone know this car? Popped up a few weeks ago on Facebook. Really is in a sorry state!

That looks almost back to nature, very little to be salvaged from that, maybe steering wheel, dash, plastic washer bottle and fuel filler release ??

Is it near you ?

Im unsure where it is. Although I’ve noticed this thread from 2011 on here which looks to be the same car. 8 years haven’t been kind to it. viewtopic.php?f=32&t=6215

Edit. Just read the caption on the old photos and it’s in Northumberland.

It's featured in "Rust in Peace" in this month's Practical Classics. I was hoping if someone lived near it they might be able to salvage the cable that pulls the seat backrest forward, but from the inside photo it's not hopeful. Dash looks as if it could be useable though, and the sun visors, if someone wants them.
