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.

Aah, I think I saw this up at Mini Machine around 1991. It looked nice but the shell was awful, patched to buggery.

Same car?

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......


Wasn't 1 NHY on a rally car?


I can't recall it.

It's a Bristol number and it's probably been on a few things!

It's been relisted now - the number is now 369 VAE, another Bristol number.

Looks like a good shell on it now, nice gaps bonnet and doors appear to fit very well

My dad built this car in the early 2000's. You guys are right it was reshelled as the original wasn't worth doing then. It doesn't appear to have had much use since he built it. If anyone wants any info about the car I could put you in touch with my dad. Cheers

Yes very likely, butchered, and I'm sure it had gone through JKs hands at some point. Steel plate welded under a previous Websto and filled over!! :shock: Just one of many huge patches.

In today's crazy market it doesn't seem ridiculously over-priced does it - re-shell or not.
Interesting that is has the Mk2 type stainless steel rear quarter windows but I think these were perhaps a feature of very late Mk1s?
