According to this weeks Classic Car Weekly there's a  1968 red Flavia convertible coming up at Anglia Car Auctions, www.angliacarauctions.co.uk on the 21st January with a rather mangled front bumper, and wire wheels that I don't think suit it, but that's just my opinion.
Although it's not listed on their site at present it is shown in their advert on page 18, but without a guide price.

Update to the original post, in the photo (poor) in the advert, what looks like a mangled bumper is actually a dark reflection at the trailing edge of the bumper in the better photo by Alan.
Must agree the extended nose looks terrible, typical case of thinking you can do it better than the original designer, which is nearly always a mistake.

Its this yoke again .... I think the bumper is fine but "mangle" would be a good description for its proboscis



I have linked to its current picture on the Anglia site but hopefully it will disappear from our view before too long....

I think "mangled front" would be a good description. Not for me though I am sure somebody must have loved it to put that much work into it.
