Some useful info written on that rear window, thanks for posting.  The 2012 rescue from a scrapyard followed by over two years fixing the rot certainly fits with the 2016 date for the first recorded MOT.

Seen in Crawley, West Sussex on 7th May.
Sold at auction for £8,207 in March 2017.  The auction listing noted that "We are advised that the car was purchased from a deceased estate with a view to preparing the car for rallying however, due to personal circumstances, this has not come about so the car has become surplus to requirements."    The car seems to have been off the road since 2008 at that point.
