It is a beauty isn't it. A small detail but a shame the restorer didn't retain the original lading panel when the front panel was replaced. I wouldn't be ashamed to own it though 8-)

Indeed. The asking price is £75k - which strikes me as a lot given it isn’t an S or a hatchback. I like the colour but if we’re being picky some of the detailing is poor (wrong rocker cover, wrong horn, no bulkhead soundproofing, no reducer and fresh air hose, sill plates should be stainless with chrome screws, no alloy wheel centres, no knob on the end of the heater control, no radio speaker behind the grille (which has been painted black), wrong headlamp flasher switch, wrong telltale warning lights in dash, wrong electric window switches (should be Aston DB5 chrome type to operate the Piper window motors), the boot lid badge is a later Radford Freestone and Webb (doesn’t say Radford Coachbuilders). No Radford Coachbuilders badges on the front wings near the A panels, headlamps should probably be concave Cibie by late 1966 rather than Lucas P700 etc. So yes it is lovely... but is it a £75k car....?

My own knowledge of "coachbuilt" Minis is very limited. When you add up all those "little details" that is quite a bit of work to put right and, as you say, £75,000 is a high price. It would be interesting to see pictures of the car BEFORE the restoration wouldn't it.

Couldn't agree more, months ago, when it first appeared at a start price of 99p, I put a snipe on it for about £120 ish & thought that was way OTT.

The current asking price is ludicrous.
