you beat me to it!, i was due to look at this car tommorow!, the guy emailed me about it today through my wanted ad, how did you hear about it? i didnt see it advertised anywhere?
i have browsed various forums for a few years and dont remember seeing any 53 standards,only deluxe models.i believe there were only 900 cars imported to the uk in 53 .yours looks in good shape .have you got the month of manufacturer?
Any ideas on numbers left?

Nice find Julian. Love the numberplate and with a plate like that you should slam it on some earlies:wink: Sure that type of RW and Vzi talk will upset Rob and Anna!:lol: :lol: :beer:
Its very original .. except for a whole load of brazed plates on the floor.. and a few dodgy repairs.. the chanels are good but presently need repairs to the outer edges.. Its going to be put away in the dry untill I can afford to repair it!
