I wonder what you would have got your best return on, a 1275 cooper s or a healey 3000 if you had just bought it and stashed it away?

Interesting Dermott.

Shows how much HOY would have been had it been sold as soon as it was built.

I wonder how much it was actually sold for 18 months later when it was an 'old' model :?

Purchase tax was quite a chunk wasn't it? You can understand why some of the small car producers went down the 'it's a kit car guv honest' route. Having said that, a 1275 'S' Unipower GT would set you back £1190 only a year or two later. :shock:

It was only 1% more than todays VAT rate.

They still are :D

Quite a premium for the 1275 over the 970 I notice.

TOTALLY agree Island Blue. Coopers are fantastic value for money and underrated little cars. Love 'em to bits and wish I'd kept the one I recovered in '88 or so from a work pals husband who locked it in his mums wooden outhouse/garage - and left it! New water pump, new battery, clean fuel 2x new rear wheel cylinders and that was it
