Matthewsons have a 65 Austin Cooper 1275 S coming up for auction on the 8th of Feb, looks like a nice car (to my untrained eye)

Reg number is DKL 661C

That car was on site at the last auction. If anyone is thinking of bidding I would give it a very good look over first.

My thoughts exactly!

Couple of MkIIs coming up for auction, with estimates around £10K these actually seem reasonable:

More details and pictures of the Brightwells Cooper here. Lack of vinyl on dash and upper door chromes suggests that this is a re-shell. Also the chassis plate looks like a new aged one.

More details of the SWVA Cooper here. A good looking car that you could drive around straight away and not have to worry about the rivet counters taking the piss.

I know which one my money is on.

Is the rear number late treatment on the SWVA a common touch... not sure I've seen that done before on a 'correct' boot lid, guess it doesn't knock when you hit a pothole...?

What do mean? On the pi55 (high on the left low on the right) or without the hinged section?

I think it just points to a very sloppy, half arsed job. Even the bloody boot seal is on the wrong way up.
