Re: What did you do to your Marina today?

That was me chatting to him, he asked if it was worth more or less than £500, I suspect more but without seeing it your guess is as good as mine, I think it's possibly a TC though as he think it has twin carbs.

Re: Should the coupe have looked like this?

Hmmm, if you extend the door by say four or five inches and then move the B pillar back by four or five inches to match, you are not actually changing the wheelbase. Then of course, if you did the same to a Mumford, you could dispense with the the funny side windows, but maybe adapt a Stag roll over...

Re: Should the coupe have looked like this?

Move the B post back four inches, extend the door by the same amount, but keep the standard wheelbase.

Extend the door windows and reduce the rear side window by 4”.

The photoshop has kept the rear window length and extended the chassis length.
