Blimey, it really is. Shame you need to be a Swedish national to register to bid. I guess it's from seized property? Plus, would you buy it sight unseen?
Of course I know what a dipstick is, you get called something often enough you look it up!

Ah, forgot that bit. UK or England, whatever you prefer!

Actually thought it was you as you originally posted about this S'
But if you were intending to buy it then you wouldn't post about it, if that makes sense.

Hoping it will stay here, so many mini's been exported over the years.
Oh well, we will know soon.

Just ended at 250000:- Swedish Zloty
Something like £23-24000 ?
Way beyond my pocketmoney, which is good as it means there wont be no need selling off my ultra rare 4,5" S' offset Cosmic's.

It was apperently mentioned on Fb that the shell and overall apperance was better than the pictures suggested.

Hope it doesnt get molested into a supershiny car with everything on it new.

Great price achieved for this '63 Rally Cooper.

I'm contemplating selling my '62 this year and starting to think that CollectingCars may be the way to do it.
The seller gets the full bid price and deals direct with the buyer so no possibility of the auction company going down with your money.

That is a very attractive little Mini. Reached a good price didn't it. Probably not very original!

This type of professional on line auction with no seller fees seems to be getting good results.
Looks like the future of selling old cars..
