Is that speedo a Morris Minor job that someone has put a km/h scale with an mph centre?


That's exactly what I was going to suggest.
It's a bit weird that it has no SN number or anything on it and I cannot think what other BMC car it could be from offhand :?

Take a look at the bulkhead Richard ...... looks like a 90's one to me :shock:

I wonder why a V5C has not been obtained - surely that would make it easier to sell :?

It looks like a back dated MK4 shell, you can see it’s got a rubber mount subframe in it. The bulkhead and floor pans look like they’re in Mini Special Rose Metallic.

I’d love to see what they did with the door frames and A-panels.

I hadn't looked at the underbonnet shots :shock: That really IS a bitsa isn't it! Goodness knows how they created that!
But strange not to even paint the whole thing? I agree, it does look a bit "Special Rosey" coloured doesn't it.

One to avoid I think.

It’s a shame that they’ve tried to pass it off as a Cooper.

On its original logbook it would be quite a fun exercise in obtaining the feeling of a MK1 without the hefty price tag. Instead it’ll get reported and scraped or sold in bits or some poor sole will lose their shirt on it.
