But then again, didn’t they make a bunch of ‘showroom dolly’ copies of the three Monte winning cars - could be one of those...?

Only one could be sold with the registration number. Any copies would have a different registration number.

My dad remembers FMO back then, a guy bought it , and it lived up the road from where I am now. Then sold to a guy in Ambleside, who used it everyday, said it was pretty knackered by 1967, he sold to a guy from Liverpool.

A mystery - it may well have been just weighed in but even in '84 there was some interest in 1959 cars as long as they weren't completely knackered.

665VPF is on SORN so it's survived.

Just goes to show how easy it is to miss cars, I've lived all my life in or around the Crowthorne area and never saw the Cooper S that was in the advert!
There used to be an early S that dashed around the Broadmoor area painted in a lovely shade of chocolate brown, including the brocade seats, but that disappeared in the early '80's as a lot of them tended to after being 'ragged' for the previous 20 years.
