Is it me or do a disproportionate proportion of S “Barn finds” seem to surface in Norwich ? :D


Yep, and the only one that is the real deal is the one I rescued from a barn in the close vicinity...... ;)

Fortunately for my car, this seller did not get his hands on it first :shock: :lol:

And has been mentioned previously the first Clubman/GT shells were not built until summer '69.


Stuart, thanks for posting, the early 1275 GT was a very nice car and now very rare. Yes Rich, right as always :)

We all know this car in question is post 1971, is honesty too much to ask for :?: :?: :?: :?:

Reasonable bid price at the moment, not sure it'll stay that way :)

He was also openly selling a Cooper S ringing kit Bulee.

Back to the past. Strong provenance, first registered 1972, original colour Blaze orange, ex-works BMC 1969 car and was used in 1968 Duckham Road Race Series car 12 - say honest to God :lol: :lol: :lol:

Alan

I'd describe it as a quite nice, reasonable spec '72 1275 GT with some interesting 80's rally history.

Quality! Jesus, that guy gets worse.. Nofolk's most prolific ringer back with another belter... right hand tank "now you see it, now you don't" :lol:

That could be the chassis plate off someone else's car he's using for it's ID. Who cares eh? "better to have another one back on the road" according to a certain Mini club. Or maybe two,.. or three or.... :roll:

The more he gets away with it the more blasé he is getting, so it seems. It'll be his downfall one day.

Interesting to note the Heritage Cert though. I know the later cars had less information recorded but if I'd just paid nearly £50 for one for my Mk3 S (hypothetical), I'd be a little disappointed with the information given.
