Despite the faults I’m surprised it didn’t fetch more!

The problem with a car like that one is that unless it’s super original ( doesn’t appear so on the surface) there’s so much money to spend to make it a nice one, including sourcing a correct engine, speedo, servo, etc etc and then sorting the body out which could spiral out of control. Could easily end up a pretty expensive car unless it’s left alone and just used as it is.

This stalled at about £25k yesterday! Will cost a bomb to make competitive, like any FIA Mini does, but I thought it would do a lot better than that.

At an auction near me, very rare South African Wolseley 1000, in what can only be described as used and abused original condition. Pity it has lost half of its original seat materials, but I'm sure that tex vinyl looks a lot like old Mercedes or VW stuff.

Also in the same auction a restored 1275 GTS rolling shell. Note plenty of black stuff under the arches, could be hiding some horrors. Also note the inside of the roof, a tad wobbly one could say.

I can see some very ropey patches on the sills, wouldn't fancy digging into that mess (again!!!)

And this would explain it :
Offside Inner Body or chassis has an inadequate repair, seriously affecting its strength within 30cm of the body mountings inner sill to floor full length of car (6.1.B.2) Dangerous

Hope the bidders have done their homework.
You can't polish a turd but you can cover it in underseal.
