I recently spotted this car in a car showroom in Poole, Dorset.

http://www.panoramabay.co.uk/used-car/morris/mini/cooper-s/for-sale-in-poole-dorset/aetv45062927/

A bit pricey but it certainly looked good and has a great spec. However it's always good to read the small print. I make no further comment. I'll leave it up to you to decide if you would be prepared to shell out around £40K for it.

I think that the Sandbanks address - the priciest place to live in the UK - has given the vendor a skewed sense of worth, value and price.

I'd hope a prospective buyer would read a few paragraphs in before dropping that kind of money, but it's dishonest to list a car as a "Mk1 Mini Cooper S" when it's a modified SDL.

And the price! Even if it was an actual Mk1 S, that's a big price for car that is far from stock.

The reason it's there surely cannot speak to the wisdom of the local customers ?

There is no such thing as a production 1963 1275 S, I am wrong in thinking it has Mk2 windows?

For that money I'd want it to really be a Cooper S and to be standard.

Notice that they've been able to get 15" KAD brakes to sit behind 10" wheels - nice job :lol:

When I read some of these flowery descriptions to describe cars I'm reminder of estate agents.......... They must go to special descriptive night school classes to write such obfuscating guff. Why don't they just start with '.Are you sitting comfortably, then I will begin. Once upon a time.......' and end with '..... and they all lived happily ever after.....'
