Wings are, doors very definitely aren't the same as the Trav - different size. Four door saloon ones are different only in small details, like the way the inside strap is fitted.

Extraordinarily unlikely to be a saloom body on an LCV chassis. as the engine bay floor would need to be changed/modified to make it fit - saloon steps down to 'chassis' at rear of bay, LCV doesn't. Easy to tell if you know the vehicles. The body (unless a trav) would also need radical mods. I'm puz...
