Drives nice to, although I wouldn't back up some of the sales blurb, especially the bit about the "Original" Special Tuning Conversion. Anyone with the gift of sight will see that it has HS2 carbs and not HS4 as per an original GT S Kit. It looks right and presents very well and from an investment point of view it has earned almost 50% in the last year ;) .
It's like what my painter friend Donald said to me

It looked in better condition in the other photos in the other thread taken when still in storage and covered in junk!

Either that or there will be a lot of folk, including me, stripping their mini's, soaking them in brine, and retiring to Barbados!

Not sure this had been discussed yet, could be a good project, if at right price, shell looks to be priced on high side though.

Obviously some more work required ie, to remove patches on foot well and heel board....cant see photo of front panel, so that probably need changing.

Is it a genuine 63 shell ?

Maybe £ 5k for shell? Plus the value of parts......whats a good restored 63 worth , max, £15k ?
