The old banger, which also had extensive damage to all areas of its bodywork, was once a red Rover but is now a patchwork of blue and yellow. It was stopped by officers in Crewe, Cheshire.
A picture was posted on the Cheshire Police Taskforce Twitter account.
The driver of the battered vehicle, who has not been identified, was reported “for having no insurance and using a vehicle in a dangerous condition”, police confirmed.
The car was seized.
Police wrote on Twitter: “Stopped in @PoliceCrewe. We kid you not.”
