Hi, and welcome.
Hope you don't mind if I butt in.
Just my opinion from experience, paying £150 for a C5 could be a big mistake, unless you can find a local private sale from someone who has no idea what the thing is worth.
You should take into consideration that restoring something normally cost far more than buying the same item in reasonable condition. Traders are buying up C5s, stripping them down and selling the individual parts for exorbitant prices,
if you need the part then you have to pay.
I even bought a junker to act as a spare parts source, it was cheaper than buying the individual parts. The more that are stripped down the less there are in existence, and up goes the price again.
I bought most of my parts years ago, thank goodness. When I see what is now being charged, it makes me shudder.
BUT, don't let me put you off. This is the right time of the year to buy, the asking prices will rise rapidly when it's warm again.
GO FOR IT, but use your head, or someone else's.:-" :-"
