Haha, I was hoping that nobody else would spot that one :lol: It looks very correct, original spec doesn't it - not surprising after so many years off the road. A great project , as you say ;)

Apart from the obviously replaced accident damaged front panel, front wing and inner wing.
It has all the hard to find parts like the steering wheel centre and the small button air vets. Also looks like it had a twin tank conversion at some point. Hopefully the body will get restored and not replaced with a new Heritage jobbie.

By the way, the current price (£6.200) is only £1,000 short of what I paid for my Teal Blue car 8 years ago. :o

Looks like a cracking GT project.
Like you say all the right bits still there including the RH bonnet fixing/prop etc.

Early 1275GTs have increased a lot in value/popularity haven't they. Rare cars now - and considered more desirable than they once were too.

Partly coz there's no Coopers left to restore in this world :lol:

There are certainly not many Coopers available for restoration which are as correct and original as that GT.

I've seen a few Restall's on those runners. Are they a Ford fitment, as the mini ones I'm familiar with are more traditional tubular steel?
