Forum rules
For Sale Section Rules

PLEASE NOTE! Postings in this section are deleted automatically after they have not been looked at for 30 days.

1) This section is for advertising items that you have for sale. Not for the discussion of listed items. If you wish to debate the pro's & Con's of any item listed, please start a new topic in the appropriate section.

2) Please DO NOT post links to your ebay auctions. This section is NOT for the advertisement of your ebay auctions.

3) If you have a number of items to sell, post them in a single ad marked "Multiple Parts" or similar. DO NOT post many individual advertisements as this forces everyone else's listings down the page.

4) It is expected that any items advertised on the forum are described fairly & honestly. It is the duty of the seller to ensure that this is the case.

5) Items listed for sale should WHEREVER POSSIBLE* be offered with a purchase price, not asking for bids from members. If you wish to auction your item to the highest bidder I would suggest you use ebay & pay the associated fees.

6) This section is offered as a free service to enthusiasts. Any deals made are between the buyer & seller only. The MK1 forum takes no part in any transaction & the appearance of any item in this section is not a recommendation. I strongly suggest that both buyers & sellers are happy to proceed with a deal before any money or goods change hands.

7) It expected that people posting items for sale are "Active Members of this community". Any Adverts placed by members with a post count lower than 5 will be deleted.

8) The advertising of or soliciting for VIN tags, log books or any other vehicle identification documentation without it's associated vehicle is expressly forbidden. Any member breaking this rule will have his membership terminated with immediate effect.

9) If a moderator considers any postings in this section to violate either the spirit or word of these simple requests the MK1 Forum reserves the right to delete any posts without prior warning or explanation.

10) The posting of items for sale on the MK1 forum constitutes explicit acceptance of these simple rules.

11) Members posting items for sale MUST include a rough location in their profile.

It would be much appreciated if sellers could leave the sale price on adverts after the item has been sold. This acts as a good measure of current value for other sellers.

* In some cases it may not be possible for the seller to list items with a sale price. In this case, listings will be reviewed on a case by case basis by a moderator. The moderators decision will be final.

mk1 / mk2 trickett sprint project

Post by jbz23 »

Hi all

my next offering and a very very reluctant sale is my genuine trickett sprint

this was originally a very rotten mk2 cooper that i completely rebuilt using new heritage panels as listed
- inner front wings
- front end / a panels inner and outer / wings / front panel
- front windscreen scuttle ( magnum )
- complete floor and boot floor
- complete rear panel. I used a mk1 panel so you got the choice if to go mk1 or mk2 look
- doors repaired new bottoms and skins / I left skins of until Neville cut down doors so skins have no join in them
- rear wheel arches
- rear boot lid has been cut down to fit

once all this was done, my trip to France was on. with a completely restored mk2 shell for him to then cut up ( I must have been mad :D )

I have a good file of photos and video's of Neville doing the work .

just the pair of new rear bins and rear valance left to fit

there is no rust at all , its ready to start prep for paint

auto front subframe comes with it that's been blasted

mk2 cooper v5c / heritage certificate / in my name

mk2 100mph cooper speedo

trickett vin number plate and stamp ( only the buyer will have the build number )

the car has sat untouched since being converted in 2017

I'm 100% sure you will never find another one for sale and you certainly cant get one done by the man himself now

£12k or very very near offer , I'm sure you can work out the price of panels and labour alone

thanks for looking
