What do you reckon this would be worth “as is” and also if fully restored?

As it is, depending on the state of the running gear, engine and interior, only a few thousand. If it's well restored, it could be worth 15 to 17K. It'll cost at least that much to get it really nice though. I suspect if he is in the trade, it won't be worth his while to restore it, so selling on is probably the best thing to do.

It's a car I'd really love to own but I have 2 cars to restore and no money to spare for them, let alone another. 

:) 

It's getting there......

Not sure this is the right message to convince people to buy parts from you:

Bodyshells & Restoration Kits

To be clear, nothing against this well know seller, I often buy from them and never had any problems. But quality 'as in the 60s and 70s' doesn't really inspire a lot of confidence, does it? 😄

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

I remember Dodi Fayed had a late model light metallic blue RHD Ferrari Mondial convertible during their relationship, which Diana was supposed to have travelled in. Several years ago it was up for sale for ages at a well known classic car dealer for £25k. This was just the going rate at the time, so no premium for any Princess Diana connection, no matter how tenuous. It would probably fetch £45k nowadays.
