But it is scary when you see an 80’s Mini 1000 project which has been molested advertised for £1500+ :shock: . No cheap projects anymore.

These late coopers like to demand money now don’t they!
I agree, late Rover Coopers now sell like hotcakes. I remember a bloke who was a big wig in the Mini Cooper Register telling me in 1995 that Rover Coopers were false. He went on to say that the only real Cooper was the 1071cc Cooper S and the rest were want-a-be cars. Now Rover Coopers and BMW Coopers make up about 60% of the MCR club.

If only he was alive now to see how wrong he read the situation :( :(

"If only he was alive now to see how wrong he read the situation :( :( "
An interesting observation. Way back in 2000 I acquired an ex JC garages demonstrator Mini Cooper to take part in the Italian Job Millenium Run; I still have it but it has been modified in true Mini owner fashion. As a keen, resting (growing family) Mini enthusiast I thought I'd join the Mini Cooper Club. They were worse than the MCR about "modern" Mini Coopers. I remember RSP conflict in the early 2000s but now they are accepted. I have always believed in the MCR phrase "The Legend Lives On." Looking at current Facebook pages I am encouraged that younger enthusiasts are enjoying their Mini ownership and have seen that someone is trying to reprogram the Spi/Mpi ECU's. Let's hope that this dreadful Pandemic will disappear and we can all get back to enjoying the craic at Mini shows; whatever colour your NOS nuts are. Wishing you all a very Healthy New Year.
May the shows be back with us soon.

Early front end inc FE plate. Might be handy for someone 'correcting' a Heritage shell ?

I didn't indicate that they were? A FE can however give a rough indication of it's age if that is important to a buyer though.

It seems everyone’s gone mad these days... there is a 1980 1275gt on Facebook. Owner won’t take a penny less than 4.5k. It’s had a big accident up front, cars rotten as pear, roofs bent. Some wolly will buy them though.

Joking aside, that is a quite a lot to bid on a car with so few photos or information- not too much history on the Ebay account either....
