No drip rails or radiator shroud and a rubber mounted subframe.

I’d say it been reshelled/logbook swapped. Maybe not a bad car if you want something for a bit of guilt free lane driving though.

He still owns it

I bought a mk1 off him around the time of the Top Gear voting, really nice bloke. Was very honest about 407ARX.[/quote]







I remember doing a write up on that for a certain publication, with Matt Woods taking some superb photos around the North Pennines. Sadly a Mini club or some other sorry individual got sand in their fanny about it and it was never printed. The owner was completely up front about it and so was the article.

There are some fantastic black and white's gathering dust somewhere.

This is interesting:

October 1961 built Cooper, or remains of. The number plate 1NHY is now on an F355 so HPI'ing the VIN might find the current number plate. Possibly just enough to resurrect the car.

Notice how the colour is down as green with a black roof......

Its a very late Mk1 that I owned briefly in the noughties. The original shell was cut up due to previous excess butchery but it was all there including that original shell. It had all it's original bits, interior etc in decent condition but the next owner Mike wanted it like new so bought all new. Sadly Mike passed away after finishing the car and it was auctioned off with proceeds going to the RSPB. The current owner bought it from auction.
