I have a 68 cooper project for sale for £6500 - so if the cars is matching numbers, in good original condition and less than £15k - I would consider buying it.

My mate went to look at a Mk2 Cooper in Island Blue at a fancy classic car showroom near Reading - advertised at £25k.

It looked great on the outside and the interior looked good too, with matching black reclining front seats.

But it obviously had oversills on it and with the carpet glued own you couldn't be sure what the floors were like. It drove but there were various mechanical niggles.

He eventually paid half that, and has since rebuild the front suspension, put in a clutch and its turning into a nice car.

It'll have proper sills and floor repairs over the winter.
