It looks like a Minor Series 11 which has suffered perhaps from freezing-up? Something has pushed-out the header tank from within hasn't it? this has altered the shape a bit.

Looks like a series 2,but not too sure. I've posted it on a few other Classic vehicle sites. Don't want to scrap it if I can avoid it.

One was originally the heater outlet.

Thanks ManyMinors. So I it must be a damaged Series 2. I'll remove the taps before weighing it in.

I agree it's Series II, must be useful to someone as it could be repaired.

The tap at lower right is the heater take in tap or heater return.

The radiator drain is at lower left.
