Good stuff there. Nice to see that not all scrapyards cube anything old as soon as it arrives!

That Viva was a 'project' on Retro Rides. Somone bought it with the intention on putting a larger/more modern engine (poss Vauxhall XE type?), stripped it out, cut the standard gearbox tunnel out, lost interest, put it up for sale, and found that the combination of no engine/box and removed gearbox tunnel did not an enticing project make.All his 'this is a mint shell, can't believe there's no interest' whining didn't hide the unmistakeable fact that he'd cut a large hole in the middle of it, which to replace properly would take a lot of work, much more than a normal rust repair to a floorpan.
