Reading between the lines I get the feeling that shell isn’t actually going to come with the log book
Looks like library photos to me

Judging by the pictures and the bids there may be more to that than meets the eye?

NOS Morris horn button.

Are the replica pieces from Somerford pretty close in quality?

Not a Mini, but this should be saved.

I know it looks like a hopeless rusty old Australian lemon, but this car has history. It was used by BL to promaote the P76 in the UK as a replacement for the P5 Rover.

Doesn't quite have the class and presence of a Rover P5B though does it :?
That would be a big challenge to restore in the UK! I'm not thinking of taking it on anyway ;)
As you say though, somebody should probably try to save it? Shouldn't they?? :?
