1071 S ‘kit of bits’ on BAT
https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1964- ... cooper-s-4
Final sale price $13,500 - just over £10,000
In my humble view someone has the makings of a great car there, and at what appears to be a very reasonable price too!
Agreed, some great parts in there, but also, as we would all expect a few surprises, no doubt. Does look like the speculators have “left the room” and project prices are settling out at sensible levels, finally.

Went to have a look at the HJ Pugh sale today.
Early 850 engine with what looks like a zenith carb and cam driven fuel pump . Looks factory fitted but I’d never seen before. Anyone know what it is?
That's bizarre. If it were not for the 8AM prefix I'd say it could have been a late pre production prototype. Zeniths were used on the 948 cc A35 and A40 and inline A Series engines don't work on a Mini gearbox as there's no flywheel tail.Any pics off the clutch lever stop nuts on the clutch cover? Early Minis didn't have one iirc.

Attached photo from HERE. It looks like a bog standard Mk1 mini engine, that someone has changed the manifolds and carbs from one of the earlier Austin inline engined cars.

Engine number decodes in AKD3502 to :
8AM - 850cc Austin/Morris transverse with synchromesh transmission
FAU - Standard fuel distributor, central gearchange
H - High compression
186066 - serial number

Worth a tenner or so for a few spare bits, but not much else!

This was sold at Historics in the past - see the link:

I have to say I quite like it - so many period extras - the high level gauges, the musical airhorns - so bad they're good! What is going on with the bonnet hinges (late bonnet fitted to an earlier bulkhead)?
