It looks alright although the potato camera pics might be hiding a lot.

But Cooper money for a Van?

Really?

12G940 casting.....I have seen these before.......
I even have a similar one here.
My guess was the tuners used the better 12G940 casting and stamped it 316...maybe to satisfy homologation requirements....just a guess!

TBH that's what I wondered, the manifold face is a big give away though if you were a scrutineer....

This head appears to be stamped AEG 163 not 316.AEG 316 is a 1275S EN40B Crankshaft,nitrided but not cross drilled.I hope to post one soon on

Forgot to say this head looks like an 1805,the best 940 variation to modify.

Looks nice but advert says oversills fitted 30 years ago!
Same advert on car and classic but it’s a dealer selling it-the eBay advert comes across like it’s a private sale…
Wouldn’t a Cooper have chrome door handles not door pulls on the inside?

Also I think GVU +++D series is an age related number. So is it an import or has it lost its original reg number. ??? Hmmm
