Why did the seller not get the original reg back and complete the paperwork? Then he'd maybe valve got even more for it!


The car was from a deceased estate, which might explain the provisional bids too.

I would think a re-issue of the original registration number would be pretty straightforward then. I dropped this story on Facebook earlier to a tidal wave of over opinionated crap from people claiming the buyer must be insane, had been ripped off, must be an idiot etc.. from people who obviously have never tried to find an original Mk1 S project in their lives, wouldn't know one if they did and have no idea how seldom they ever appear for sale, even as crispy as this one is. That'll teach me! :lol:


Pete, I’ve a friend who sold a 100% complete matching numbers 1966 Island Blue Mk1 Cooper S car last week. Not only was it a complete original car, it had loads of history and all new panels required to complete the build. It also had the correct gearbox rebuilt by a specialist, the correct engine standard size bore and standard size EN40B crank.

It was an original North American car imported with all paperwork present and correct. When compared with that Surf Blue car, this was a very cheap car without question and good luck to the gentleman from Yorkshire who bought it :D

Makes it a £50K mini when eventually finished.


The value, give or take, of a proper car in perfect condition with a known history.

If I had the money (as in millions) I'd do it as well, just for the sake of it. But I don't, so.............. :lol:

Steve,

I honestly don’t know. I would love to see his progress with the build. He has got himself a nice project that when finished will be the real deal :D

Hope he keeps us all posted on this forum :?:
