its a 63 2 door Aussie import.a flat back panel refers to the petrol filler neck being flush and not having a slight protrusion.

oooh aussie import, i wish

must be near rust free, only surface rust to worry about 

 

re flat back panel

must look into this, never noticed this before

is it country related ?

 

re engine,

what would a mk5/6 rs2000 engine be out of ?

exhaust on the left side ?

 

cheers

all the first cars built had flat back panels.the engine is from a mk5 rs escort, and exhaust is on the passenger side.
