I agree with Simon, That looks like it has had a Downton conversion before it was exported. A VERY NICE find indeed!

Is this for real ?, £240k. They are also selling a few other Minis in the £150K price range. A collector getting nervous about future values ?.

Just J.D Classics doing their thing. Ie unique cars priced at the top.

I thought they were now called Woodham Mortimer after the issue of a few years ago, but must have reverted to the old name?

All being offered by the newly resurrected JD Classics.

Now that is one name I really thought we wouldn't see again!

That's what I thought, figured the "JD" name would be seen as bad news.
