Re: Handbrake lever knob!

Was it the chrome version or the white plastic version ?

If you want an original one for show then I can supply one either as found or cleaned and painted. Bryan , Club...

Re: Glass jar!

Have you seen what really early '59 Minis fetch now ? Even basket cases are fetching tens of thousands.Nearly as much as a genuine Cooper S.
If only my '53 Travellers were worth as much.

On the bottom photo the one at bottom left is the Morris 8E and 10M solid bakelite version which is the right shape for an MM.

Re: Glass jar!

These 59 Mini glass washer bottles are the Holy Grail for 59/early 60 Mini owners.
My daughter has a 59 Mini and I found a BMC boxed jar for her several years ago. I believe the current going rate is around £500 . On this one on ebay it is the top that is a remanufactured item.
