I believe that Nippycars Fred had some dealings with JD Classics Minis.

I did, :evil: :twisted: :evil: but that isn’t one of mine, I’m pretty sure Scott Turner did that one,

I’m sure Nev bought that one back from the states unrestored and then as Fred said it was passed on to Scott Turner who restored it for the new owner. Mini world feature car early last year.

Yep it was one of mine, good original car, we started restoring it but it was going to hold up progress on my Radford HB so off it went! I sold it to Scott and Scott restored it for JD. Here’s a photo of it pre resto

I’m completely lost with this car. Why is the word original used with the final outcome? It is an absolutely stunning car, but entirely a recreation from top to bottom? Have I missed something? :?: :?:

To be fair, that is probably about as original as you can reasonably expect a 1960s restored Cooper S to be isn't it? The seller is being quite open about its restoration from a US import.

It looked cool as it was too Nev !, love the look of an unrestored genuine S, reminds me of the Red Mini "408ROO" from Blyton a few years ago

I’ve a friend who has a completely original 1966 North American Austin Cooper S in time warp condition. It is the most original Cooper S I’ve seen in years. It is LHD and the owner Paul wouldn’t dream of converting it to RHD. Neville you will see this car later this month I believe? :D
