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.

Re: Indicator Cancel

Re: 1949 MM Gear Nob

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. The one at centre right looks like the solid rubber ones which the club via Mike Perry had mad a few years back and of which we still have some left. The mould for these cam...

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.

Re: eBay Scammers

Forgot to say - Ebay didnt seem particularly concerned when I spoke to them this week. If I was to include my email address in any of my listings on ebay they would withdraw my listing immediately and give me a right bo*****ing. Is it an ebay insider trying to boost eby vehicle listings?

Paul Beck retired earlier in the year and Vintage Supplies was sold to new owners now based elsewhere in the UK. Maybe he will now have time to finish the restoration of his S11 Van.
