Is a TVR Tasmin a good investment?

There is a TVR Tasmin (wedge shape from the 80's) on eBay with a salvage yard that it is a Cat C write off due to light fuel line engine fire. The seller who appears to be a TVR salvage enthusiast has the bits to repair and get running and also will MOT for £5500? I have checked the VOSA history and the car appears to have very little mileage (under 20k) it also looks very clean in the photos. Any idea whether this is good value and any thoughts on whether the wedge shape TVR might be a good first classic car investment

Values for these are still a bit subdued - you could probably buy one without a Cat C for the same money.
