Yes, the front end is a lot later and quite a few parts are incorrect. The boot floor looks a bit "repaired" too? I think it's a car you'd really need to have a proper look at but it is a good start :)

Some might say that's a sensible period modification, there's plenty of space and it's out of harm's way.

Interesting that the top dash rail is vinyl covered, I'm no expert on early cars but thought that was something that only came in with the Super and Cooper?

Also spotted this 1960 Morris on a buy it now price of £18,950 : https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mini-Origina ... 0005.m1851

Someone got a bit carried away with the chrome trim and no under bonnet pics

Car is in France and will only deliver at cost to M25. Won't accept Paypal, only bank transfer 30% deposit. Do I smell a rat?
