Just brought this one, it was on eBay and I did a deal outside of eBay, paid strong money and turned out to be a tarted up runner And not the shelf Queen it was advertised as! My own fault, I thought the guy was genuine, anyway have a look
I've stripped cleaned and rebuilt this car, I've swapped out some parts for my runner 2001 and now this one is going on eBay, if it doesn't sell it'll still look good on the shelf

4 Repro shell, smaller than original 9 Scuffed front dampers new rear 10 Missing battery box 9 11 New bumper 10 Elongated deck holes After rebuilding

I wouldn't say it's a bad buy. Of course, I don't know how much you paid for it. For the most part, it seems complete. The bumper is a new original - only found on the 2001 and Vanquish. It has the correct wheels and tires - very hard to get hold of. I've seen plenty of 2001s on Ebay and so many are missing the correct wheels. The CPR Unit and Adspec transmitter are a bonus, as are the Hicap dampers. It's a shame about the scuffing and the lack of undertray, but considering it's age, I think the car is quite good condition. With a little more TLC, she could be a true shelf queen.

It does have the undertray I just had it off for the photo, I’ll strip a few parts off it and move it on as I have a new built and a runner now, the dampers and vintage controls were the items I was after

Does the egress not use the same bumper also?

The Egress bumper is smaller, but a direct fit as far as I know.
