Looks like it has been done by one of the "later versions of Radford" as opposed to actual 1960's Radford. All looks very 1990's to me.

Having said that, I know bugger all about coach built Minis.

Has a whiff of Wood and Pickett with the de-seaming and those arches.

Certainly it has been for sale many many times before over the years and was previously discussed on these pages. I think the general opinion was that it was not an "old school" or original "coachbuilt" Mini. I'm doubtful that the registration number is original as one of my cars, after a cherished plate transfer, was given a replacement reg of ABW xx F.

I remember it being for sale in Banbury for about £50k a few years ago and I was tempted to go and have a look as it was not too far away. It was sat next to my Mk2 S at Stanford Hall a few years ago and looking at it in close up it's very nicely done. I think it would look better wit ha darker coloured interior but it's ok as it is. I wonder who did all the work...?

Doesn’t look like W&P or Radford but has been described as such for years.

I believe several Minis went through W&P during the 1970s to be modified. Deseaming. Mk 2 lights, interior upgrades etc. This particular car has a very unusual dashboard which reminds me of what we used to construct as teenagers because we couldn't afford to get a company to do it for us. As I have said any times "Caveat Emptor."

Thought the same, to be honest I think its an awful looking interior........the whole car doesn't seem to hang together, just a random collection of modifications......
