  1. So….is it likely to have an identical twin or two in other parts of the World?

    Those Heritage Certificates with that name on them…… Do you think he got a good 'trade discount' on them for bulk purchase? If not, his contribution to the Heritage Trust must have paid for a big chunk of the museum I'd have thought?

    Certainly be an interesting car, and a great talking point at Mini events. I'd like to see the 'as found' pictures.

  2. 'The no-expense-spared restoration project began in 1986 with the intention of using as many original parts as possible'

    Including a pre hydro bodyshell, incorrect seats, Mk2 boot lid, etc built by the master of fakery. Check the fake Downton rocker plate which Downton never made and stressed to look old. All yours for £70K.

  4. Wouldnt be surprised if it wasnt reshelled a couple of times during its race period. Wouldnt have thought much of the car that left the production line is left. This could be said for many ex competition cars.

    That all being said if money was no object would still like it in my collection. 🙂

  5. I agree Mike but that is a bit more than just a number plate, if that was the start point for the restoration, then it is a lot more mini than I was expecting to see.

  6. :D. I suppose that is the value of a registration number and some nice bits?

    As said above, whatever it is or isn't, let's hope that the car gets used, seen and enjoyed anyway:). It does look great.
