Re: Adjustable drivers seat frame/62convertible rear wing

Do you mean the original style with the notched lever to move the base a little bit, the upmarket original with adjustable backrest, or one of the modern higher backed adaptions as mentioned above? Also, what area are you in as seats aren't the easiest or cheapest things to post, so someone local t...

Thanks for the reply - but what cubic capacity Cooper S - as there are Cooper's /Cooper S's and there are Cooper's/Cooper S's which makes some more interesting than others.

Yes, there are 2 completely different "barn find" Minis. The one in this thread is a more valuable model I think
Ah yes, I didn't spot the one hidden by the Minor until later comments made me look again.
Lucky find for someone. :D
Best wishes,
Mike.
Not a find just been well hidden ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: 40yrs of dust and she still looks great

You have sparked my interest - what is so special about the Mini mentioned above? Phil Hi phil the one behind my Morris is a 1 owner mk1 Cooper S that was used for rallying in its first few years of life . Itโ€™s not in too bad condition considering. The engine has been freshly rebuilt and awaiting f...

Re: New member from Kent registration help

Iโ€™ve been informed the logbook will be found and it was moted in the 70/80s . They have also said that they think the tax discs are there also . So fingers crossed. Is there any companies or specialists that have more luck dealing with DVLA rather than just myself ?
