Madadash is it? I remember buying one for my Cooper about 50 years ago. It was a flimsy piece of rubbish really but I thought it was very cool at the time :lol:

Yes, I agree the car has been for sale for a while and has I think featured on here at least once.

I fancy the 'racing suit', the 'driving gloves' and maybe the nylon 'rally coat' from page 8 :geek:

Mk1 S at 1:53:30, £28k. Not sure if this was accepted though, very cheap.
Mk1 Cooper at 41:20, £15k provisional.
Mk1 Cooper lhd at 2:54:00 , £15250 provisional.

Don't appear to be selling that well.

That takes me back to the early 1970s in Essex when local competitors started to wear the B&G overalls on road rallies. Just along the road was another motoring shop - I think West Essex Rally Spares - shop? I remember our local motor club commisioned "nylon" rally jackets and also door stickers like the Ford ones, white letters on black rectangular background! Teenage kicks. :lol:
