I’m giving up asking rhetorical questions. What’s the point?

I agree with Costa on the one above, a valuation is impossible / meaningless without a few pics to go on.

Yes, the shell doesn’t look original but if the chassis number on the V5 is right then it’ll remain a Cooper.
But anyway, it represents what people will pay for what they think is a Cooper project.

Interested to know what yourve spotted on the shell shown in that ebay link, to help with my knowledge? To my untrained eye all im seeing is that it has boot board brackets. Maybe the remote gear hole looks suspect?

Remote cut out or lack of.

Top dash rail should be covered, top ash tray is wrong.

Pretty sure the NMP badge was a Cowley only thing to.

The shell does indeed look to be non Cooper, ignition switch is the early floor start version-hexagonal nut and should be spaced key start type. Speedo is 105 mph- 997 would have been 100 dead. Not essential I know but 850 type grille still fitted, drums still fitted and the remote hole is nothing like.

Just my tuppence worth.

Thanks, useful to understand these little details which make all the difference.
