Hi Bas,
It could be this one

I don't know anything about it and the seller hasn't given a chassis number.
It's a D&H Mk.IV.

The biggest problem area and the hardest to repair is where there are mild steel reinforcing plates bonded into the GRP.

In the MkIV these plates are much smaller than the earlier cars but they can still rust and cause the GRP to delaminate.

The problem areas are the front damper top mounts, the front subframe top mounts and the rear subframe front mounts.

Problems here are repairable but it means cutting away the existing GRP, removing and replacing the reinforcements then relaminating the GRP.
