It’d be interesting to have some info from the seller. The extra holes here and there and the seats make me think it might have some period competition history.

£41,070 includes premium. The car was bid to £37,000, premium is 11%.

Others in the auction were a Mk2 998 Cooper which was bid to £16000. The plate looks familiar and the sunroof didn't seem to hold it back

Late registered Mk2S did not sell, with an estimate of £25-30,000, and is currently being offered at £26,350. I guess the sellers reserve was £24,000.

Seems to be fairly priced although not sure about the floors, may be worth a look. Doesn't have the original engine though.
That Tweed Grey 1071 had lots of history, original shell, really rare colour for a 1071 BUT yes wrong S engine and it lost it's nice number plate onto another car from the same seller but I think was a good buy at £33K.

Lovely looking car.
Really enjoyed the TV series on Matthewsons recently, a family run business who really seem to enjoy what they do. They seem to offer a nice customer focused service.

These all seem to be fair prices........the “Speculative investor ” element of prices seems to be finally dropping away.....
