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.

Extremely original 1964 bodyshell now sold

Post by kit of bits »

Evening chaps.
For sale
September 1964 “dry” bodyshell and logbook.
I’ve owned this for 37 years, it’s been my first car, my wedding car, and a shell waiting for a rebuild.
Unfortunately all original parts, peroid tuning parts & fully restored parts were lost in my house fire 18 months ago.
I’ve been thinking about selling it and now it’s time to draw a line and move forward with my Mini Cooper s rebuild.
The shell is mostly original, the rear valance has been replaced, the o/s wing was replaced at one year old when the original owner hit a horse and the o/s A panel straightened. There are a few period repairs but nothing horrible..
There’s two doors that have been restored to a high standard but need trial fitting, I’ve lost the new hinges at the moment but hopefully I’ll find them.. there’s a new heritage bonnet and boot lid.
The price is hard to judge, a new heritage shell is £14,000, if you buy a core unit and buy all the normal panels and pay a professional to restore it your probably looking at a similar cost.
I’d like to think £8500 is a sensible price please tell me if you think I’m wrong you don’t see bodyshells as original as this very often and I’m sure ill regret selling it..
viewings welcome NN12 south Northants, I'm happy to deliver within reason.
I’ll let the pictures do the rest of the talking..
Dave

Looks a beauty.

Compared to the cost of a heritage shell then messing about with it to get it right, or restoring an old knacker, that’s a bargain.
