Well..... They were my listings. Immediately after they ended the winning bidder on the gearbox messaged me to say that he doesn't want it because he didn't win the engine!!! And as of yet had no contact from the winning bidder on the engine. Isn't ebay great!

So as far as I am concerned both are still for sale, if anyone is interested let me know.

I'd seriously consider selling my spare S engine for that sort of money . thin flange, plus 20 bore and 10/10 on the crank IIRC :lol:

Hi
This is not eBay but I am intrigued by the flat sills and welded on seat mounts on a 65 car , does have recessed screen surrounds and upper seatbelt mounts are visible however there are grommets in the sills .
I believe Portugal received Minis as CKD’s at some point but would they have had shells with items that were changed on U.K. cars several years earlier?
Chrome catches too but that doesn’t necessarily mean to much as you could put them on a 1980 Mini van….if you were rich enough :D

There are a few things not as it left the factory :) ...... but then it is in Madeira and it was apparently a ex competition car - the shell and parts might just be part of its history...like lots of ex-competition minis and works cars ?

Standard of work does look good though, I would be frightened to drive it :lol:

It has to be a re-shell using an earlier bodyshell doesn't it?
It looks very nicely done. Expensive though.
