It is sad that this happens all too often and looking at the photographs on the auctioneers website I suspect the rear bumper has been damaged in the process of moving the car so its likely the chassis extensions under the boot to which the bumper is mounted may have given way. On one of my 401's they required localised repairs, but on the other one acquired mid way through that project it looked as though they had either been replaced or if not substantially rebuilt. The good thing is the car looks substantially complete and being one of the early body styles which you do not see very often now it may encourage someone to restore it rather than buy it for spares.
