Looking at the wheels and stance, and the fact that it's at a VW swapmeet, it's pretty certain to be air-cooled & rear engined.

I have no comment to make.

Someone did that with a normal Allegro too, it looked surprisingly good. Absurd though.

Personally would have liked to seen either of those at stock height with stock hubcaps on steels of some sort.  Much more of a headfuck that way and in the case of the saloon one that was done, probably more practical since you could still put the rear seat in properly.

How does £40 sound? Genuine BL panel etc. It's the other side rear door which is the rare one, so I was told.

Why are offside rear doors particularly rare? Is there a peculiarity of the metal work which makes them rot more?

I have no idea, but I had it on good authority. Put it down to BL intransigence, it wasn't uncommon for someone to get the figures wrong.

Not so, as I bought all my doors off the chap who told me.

Having owned Allegros for 20 years I can vouch for the fact that the offside rear door is the hardest to find, yet also don't have a good reason as to why.  Apparently true of Maxis/Landcrabs too.
