Original vs Reproduction ?
My car is also an “all original” 1967 Cooper S, but many of the original 1960’s parts came from different cars :)
As always, view a car for what it actually is, not for what the seller claims it to be…

Indeed - the difference between "standard" and "original" - when first "discovered" it had Microcell recliners and Rosepetal wheels. It has also gained a body number on the front panel since then...

Imagine if you bought this car, it would be a talking point where ever you took it :lol:

RB is getting very close to over playing his hand - if he hasn`t already....

At worst Rolex Bob’s is a logbook special? But plenty of Ss are that sell for plenty more than that. His problem really is the sheer amount of bullcrap he’s used on previous listings, the new home made body number plate won’t help but mainly the absolutely ridiculous price he put on it to start with! Cars like this develop a stigma where nobody wants to own them!

I agree - its not a bad car. The hype and eye-watering price tag were the problems. I suspect he would have sold it long ago for a very good price if he hadn't over egged it...
