Hi Craig

That is an impossible question to answer I'm afraid, given that we have no idea what state the car is in and how much work you will do on it.....

Generally speaking, Wasp mechanical spares are mostly available, although you do have to search for them and be patient. Trim and body panels you need to make or repair yourself. When you ask about the cost of restoration, are you assuming that you will take it somewhere to do everything on the car? If so, the cost of restoration will most likely far outweigh the end value of the car, even if you find a cheaper restorer.

Most owners of these sort of cars do some or all of the work themselves, perhaps farming out specific jobs to specialists. So you should ideally have some skills on ash frame repair, panel repairs, upholstery repairs, and basic mechanical work. Wasps are not difficult cars to restore - to people who have some or all of these skills, and who enjoy the challenge.

I hope this helps
Bob
