Someone said to me the other day : that car is just one step further than just writing ‘Mini Cooper’ on the boot of an 850 with a biro. :lol:

Pete, unless the post count gets stuck at 9999 , like a good old Mini speedo invariably does, you need to make your next post an epic one to remember ;) 8-)

Well this is a new one to me.

1960 on ebay, seems to be very close to a 1959 from my limited knowledge....did 1960 have a glass washer bottle ?

Looks a nice car......but the age related bits will become the focus....

I challenge anyone to read the whole description (In capitals) without losing the will ....... :lol:

Interesting to compare that with this one that is up for auction next week, which one is more original? Looking at the interior of the auction car I would say that one is. That Newtons stuff just looks very very wrong.

I think the '61 part may have came from an antique cupboard .. allegedly :roll:

I wonder what horrors are hidden beneath the load bay lining :o
