And yet another bitza, that moody “barn find Mk3 S” (that’s neither)

And this Mk2 Cooper

Lovely 850

This Mk2 S went for about £10k all in I think and the Mk1 is being sold as a Cooper not an S though it has a complete S engine in it.

If any of you folks fancy changing marques, or like me enjoy the best of both worlds, there was a cheap cosworth just sold at Silverstone - not!!!!

Not an RS500 version either - my gosh!!!

It is no secret that I was very keen on the Prisoner Moke, and had I managed to sell my patent, was hoping to have bought it. But at no point would I have been even close to considering it to be worth even close to the £69,7550 it is listed as having made today!

Tops in my mind was half that. And there are few folk who hit that sweet spot of Mini Fan and Prisoner fan as squarely as me (and Mr F), but someone clearly also added significant disposable income to that.

It was sold as a barn find (which usually adds a significant premium) for something like £13k, and so the Prisoner 'premium' was established at under £10k to my mind. AND Phil, the vendor has had the kudos of all the firsts - taking it back to the village, the conventions, the magazine and sunday papers coverage.

What would I know :lol:

Still, I'm delighted for Phil, gutted for myself, but at that money, even if I'd got my deal sorted in time, FAR too rich for my blood. No moke is worth that. Or so I thought.

Certainly some mad prices all round but the Rover Coopers looked good value compared to what else is around…

About £9k inc fees which if it was indeed an S chassis number was a good buy! Even with a Cooper chassis number it was worth a punt with the S lump in it. The blue Mk2 Cooper went for £15k which was also a decent buy. Contrast that with the £48k plus fees that Brewer’s tidy-ish ‘67 Mk1 S fetched at the NEC. That’s £38k for the car and £10k for John Cooper’s palm print on the roof. 😆 Brewer changed his plea on the podium at the NEC to ‘owned by John Cooper Garages” but the auctioneer stuck with the “regularly used by John Cooper for two years” bollocks which the winning bidder clearly believed!

Has the John cooper connect been verified because the sales stuff certainly make out it was driver regularly by him as back by Mike cooper.. last I saw he was saying this is not correct..

I find I hard to believe brewer saw the reg and instantly remembered the car from a picture that wasn't previously seen much..

It ended up sending for £54k

Thanks, £9K all in, is not too bad.
Lets hope whoever bought Brewer’s S , bought it for the the Brewer connection more than the John Cooper connection, or as an investment , they wont see that £48 K again
