A bright little Mini but that's a bit of a "Bitza" isn't it? Earlier heater, no safety bosses on the door handles, dry suspension? I think it has the crushable sunvisors(?) and it has the correct seat pattern for a '67 (although I think it is all new replacement). The (incorrect for 1967) boot badging is all over the place isn't it :? :lol:
A lot of welding scars on that floor too!

That is absolutely lovely - I've nicked a photo as a screensaver.

It'll have the 'fahrt/start' switch we used to snigger at as kids. Bonus.

25 grand makes a lot of other stuff including some ridiculously overpriced 1275GT's look expensive.
