It's also been plater*ped - ATW359A is a re-registration. Could vaguely understand the subterfuge if it was the original number but why bother making it out to be a 62' unless there was no V5 with the shell. Comes with £100 worth of wicker baskets though...

This just shows how not looking carefully can land you with something that is over priced. Hammered at £13,000, plus commission (and VAT) means the buyer paid £14,560.

Much more sensible was the Mk2 Auto Traveller which hammered at £7500, or £8400 inc. comm. and tax

An A suffix is 1963 and engine number is far later than the 1962 it's supposed to be. My 66 has 6 digits after H, this one has 7 so maybe 1969.
Think the boot lid is much later as well.

There are SO many things "wrong" with that car :oops: . The new owner will have a shock if he/she ever takes it to one of the better Mini shows and hopes for admiration.....
The auctioneers should be ashamed of themselves.

Forget the Auction contract, there may be potential to sue some one for misrepresentation... buyer may be entitled to believe it is what the Auctioneer or seller has advertised it as....but looks as if it isn’t......
If it was a modern car, it would be a Ringer........it stinks

The 'A' suffix is often a bit of red herring and applies here too. It may indicate 1963 but a suffix was not used in Essex until Jan 64, and by then it was 'B', so 'A' never issued at the time. Also 'ATW' would appear have been used 3 times - 1933, 1954 and 1968. Somebody has very kindly trawled through the Glass's guides of the period and come up with a database. Been on here before but here's a link:
