I love that - its period home modding at its best (behind the 'er S obviously).
If I wasn't having to slim the collection I could find that a home!

a bit out of our price range, and probably not that interesting to many on here, but worth a look to see how artcurial list cars that they have for sale.....

https://www.artcurial.com/en/lot-1927-b ... rt-3790-56

scroll down to read the English, the inspection that they have had done on this car makes very interesting reading!!

obviously a complete bitsa, but could you imagine a uk auction house been as thorough on some of the 'high dollar' cooper s's that have been sold recently where its a complete case of 'buyer beware....'

Obviously that car could be worth well into 7 figures so I guess a bit of due diligence by the auction covers them.

There are a couple of other interesting cars

First is a '66 Austin Mini with an estimate of 10to 15000 Euro

The other is a Vanden Plas Princess 4 Litre R by Radford. The R-R grille is a bit tacky but the Rover P6 rear lamps give the car a more modern look.

Christ, that VDP thing is grim.

A proper Silver Shadow is only 15 grand or so.

A true bitsa!
Having been around vintage cars all my life, I can remember as a kid in the 70’s and early 80’s visiting various old boys with my dad who were making vintage and veteran cars from scratch and even getting a friend in the police to let them have lovely short registration numbers.....

I'm presuming it's been to auction before? What sort of figure did it achieve and what's it likely to achieve do we think?

It's ticking lots of boxes for me, would seem an ideal highdays and holidays mode of travel :)

I recall circa 10K, but don't think it actually sold as it was on ebay the week after for bids and made upto £8k or so?
Could be mistaken here mind.

I like it too mind. (Y)

Its a Cooper S in all but logbook essentially so I suspect it'll go to high teens if not more?!

It was with Historics at Brooklands last September. No price on their site as it did not reach the £10,000 reserve. It has had a few bits done to it when you compare the pictures from then to now, such a different grille, new tyres, added chrome trim and pinstripe etc etc.
