JOF129E was one of my old ones. It was a strange spec 998 Cooper supplied by BMC but had a Mini Minor MA2S4 VIN. It has a 120 mph speedo in the photo. It was possibly a police spec car, no idea. I sold it in 2000.
It had 998 Cooper brakes, engine and gearbox.

If I could get the VIN it'd be possible to see what Gaydon have in the records for it. The bonnet badge is Cooper as well.


Thanks C - it was an odd one definitely, 'plain' interior but with the Cooper speedo, no exterior brightwork round the tops of the doors.... did it have the Morris Cooper badge on the bootlid…?

There's a thread over on Pistoneads called 'Classics dwarfed by moderns' but looking at this pic it's easy to forget just how big the Bentleys and Rollers of the day were compared to most other fare. Interesting that the Vauxhall and MGB both have the new fangled reflective plates on!

That's Broomhill - it has changed very little.

It was black with a GRP Clubman front on, and very, very rusty. I think I gave 100 quid for it. :roll: :lol:

Tax disc looks like it says April '67 and the dash top looks like a Raddie job.

That looks like the same car used in the film The Psychopath, the dark haired woman bears a resemblance to Margret Johnston who starred.

Cars do look similar though one has standard (or Cooper) wheels and the other has "S" type. Extra badges on wing and a roof aerial too? Possibly same car upgraded later I suppose?
