You could re-create the one that BMC Competitions Dept used as a rally support vehicle in the 1960s 8-) Remarkable to find one that hasn't rusted away now. They did suffer terribly from rust :|

Plus commission. Still cheap compared to a Mk1 but the rot looked pretty advanced.

Looked to me like someone had already started a restoration -of sorts and it'd got the better of him. Look at the windscreen scuttle panel. Then he'd ;et the original wheels go for some reason and then let the car go.......... None of the usual police ..'one careful owner' type holes in the dash panel so far as I can see.

Anyone know where (U)BD was registered?

This one looks like it has engine and brakes from a 1275 Cooper S.

The interior and the white roof really stand out as wrong on that traveller to say nothing of the red block.
