Quite intrigued by the mk1 speedwell mini on eBay.Were these conversions done straight from the factory or could they converted at any time?
The bidding stands at £5100.What would be deemed a fair price taking in consideration it's so called rarity.
Ps apologies for not posting this on the non cooper thread.

Yes you could have your car converted by Speedwell themselves at their own premises in period and there are a few examples about (only a few !) or you'd buy their bits and bolt them on yourself.
The car on Ebay looks to have been done as a replica period conversion because despite the twin carbs and short pipes being a Speedwell kit the rest of the bits including the cylinder head are not. The head is painted yellow to replicate Speedwell's own but was described by the previous owner here......... [url]http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C351214[/url] ....as a modded 'Speedwell spec' 998 Cooper head.

Value wise, well if you look at the photos in the above link it does look a little grotty so is probably the price of an average 1960 Mk1 Mini that needs tidying/paint with a few extras on. Put it this way, you could easily make your own for the money it's at now and maybe not have to put up with a reissued number plate.
