Morris Minor V5. Could be an early mistake, perhaps they were all like this.

Would the chap care to show is the Morris Minor Vin Plate. They are quite distinct.

Looks like it's had an interesting life and hasn't been plate raped. Great project!


Is that a 1960 shell? Looks like recessed windows, gutter drain hole not oval and I would have thought the extended seat brackets would be visible on the interior shot.


Reg date is Oct 1960 the '59 Register says:-
"Recessed front screens: Post October 1960, Oval gutter hole continued into 1960 but then factory cut front drain hole came in, some earlier cars might have a cold chiseled hole by hand. All 1959 and 60 cars have fixed welded on front seat mounts on the cross member. They go with tubular seat frames."

I do sometimes wonder with ebay. One of my other cars is an RS500 Cosworth. Anyone fancy building one up can buy this V5 for a mere £20,000!!

Mk1 Cooper S type cars seem to be out of reach these days :( :(

Not sure I would draw that conclusion purely from an ad like that. A mate of mine picked up a tidy Mk1 S for a third of that price a couple of months back.

Is it me or are those 'original wheels' the cast aluminium ones?

There does not seem to be a gap between the rim and the centre and the holes look incorrect.

Surly this dealer is just “flying a kite” , in case there is some one out there with £75K burning a hole in pocket, isn’t he ? Just seems far too much...

They look like modern aluminium ones to me too...
