What about this one :lol:

I contacted the seller and asked him what year the shell was that it had been built into. He came back to say that he "thinks it is original, just having had doors replaced". I pointed out that it was not a Mk1 shell at all and his response was "It is a lovely car though!"

Nice enough looking car for what it really is but a bit cheeky calling it a '64.

I dont understand who is paying that much for what could just be a ringer, is it just naivety or do people just not really care anymore?

I guess it must be there to stop the steering column cowl from popping open when you go over bumps at high speed :lol:

GOY764D was my first mini...I found a few of the price lists in the car when I bought it.
I'd like to have the brochure but not at 124.95.
