2500 for sale

Hi
Anyone know the history / recent condition of this car, VYN32S.

I have checked DVLA MOT history and it suggests advisory's on rear floor near suspension mounts and also end of Sill.

Major or minor work???

Engine in bits in the boot, so not a simple project I know.

Thoughts ?

Is it just plug and play or does the body or engine harness need changing? 2) it's an auto. What is the rev difference between auto...
