Are striker Mk 2 body panels still available?

Afternoon guys, Iíve stumbled across a Sylva Striker Mk2 rolling chassis for sale. Itís got an engine that comes in a box (so probably knackered) and other bits and bobs, but the body looks extremely sorry for itself! At £2000 I know I shouldnít expect much, but if I canít replace the body/bonnet etc itís pretty much a waste of money. Do the Raw parts still fit?
I would add some pictures, but I cannot for the life of me seem to do it anymore.

Itís been sitting for 12 years, no engine, looks really rough.... but, it is registered properly not like everything else Iíve seen!
Whatís your thoughts?? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds way over priced for a shoddy car in bits and a knackered engine. I'd offer £750 - 800 for it. If they don't take it walk away and look for something better.

Haven't seen it but from description it sounds like £600 to £800

Seen the pics looks a bit better than the description so could be more like £1200

Dai.

If it has a legit V5 then it's worth a few quid but still nowhere near 2k.

If itís the one on FB marketplace it does look tired.

But if you were to strip it back and get cleaning/painting it certainly looks like it could be saved (including the fibreglass). Is it worth £2k - not sure Iíd go that high, but if correctly registered itís a blank canvass that you donít have to jump through hoops to get it on the road.

Suppose itís all down to budget and time, the latter if the budget is low 😂

To answer your question, current body still fits yes, i've got a 89 striker with the raw bulge bonnet and nose, but even new scuttle and rear bodywork fit.
here it is
Striker 2013
Striker 2013



Price wise, that's your own choice. As said above, i'd offer way less but it still worth some money as it's properly registered.

£2k seems a lot of money for what sounds to be a car in bits needing a fair bit of work doing and no doubt parts sourcing. IMHO I'd be looking for a more up together car for that sort of money at this cold and damp time time of year.

As others have said yes RAW can still supply parts and they will fit fine. It looks like it needs a complete strip and rebuild (assuming it is the FB one) but that's not a bad thing as you can then make it your own

Price is always negotiable and ultimately whats it worth to you?

Last taxed in 1999, so its just been collecting crap and water, and by the looks of it all the time outside!
And to be honest, it doesnt look to be well built either,

The only thing it has going for it, is the V5, so the whole package is based on that, £500 would be my max

Thats was probably spelt wrong, or had some grammer, that the "grammer police have to have a moan at

Holy molly, sorry but that car looks terrible. Looks very worn out and unloved. You could easily spend 3k sorting that mess out.

Yeah £500 would be a more accurate valuation.

Yes it looks sorry for itself and is only worth what some one will pay but look around and what stuff has been fetching.Even the old robin hoods are on the up.

Chassis and v5 £750 + and thatís for a legit re chassis. If the v5 says something thing a little a little broader ie ďLocostĒ it would sell for a grand easily right or wrong.

Gearboxes even untested even a 4 spd

A full 2.0 Pinto needing a refresh with spares

A good English axle, Iíve not even seen one for a while.

And all the other donor parts.
