If you click on the "Bids" tab it shows a top bid of £40,000

Thanks. I wonder if it sold (or the MK2 Downton S that the same seller had in the auction)?

Here's one for the brave at Anglia at the end of January

Mk2 Morris Cooper. Possible import in 1982. Been "dry" stored for a number of years, but body looks very crusty. Does look complete but all of it will need work. Also the over sills could be hiding something worse. Estimate £6,000-£8,000.

They also have this pretty towing barge with a similar estimate. If only they had a trailer in the auction.

The Mk2 looks a very good project

I supplied some of the parts for this Italian Job replica (Cibie Type 22 headlamps, overalls, crash helmet, replica gold bars, whip aerial etc to the guy who originally built it back in 2006/2007. It was auctioned three times after that with all of the film related stuff (which it now seems to have lost):

It was built as a replica based on a 1965 registered Morris Cooper S but badged as an Austin Cooper S with late Mk1 features such as the double skinned boot lid (as the film cars had).
