The guy also had these three MG TD's he's gonna sell but hasn't figgered out what to ask.
Two stored in the weather. Blue one got a little shade. A fourth is piled on a trailer wrecked when his dad was in high school. May be of some interest to MG TD fans.

Rats, forgot to rotate the pics. Oh well...
Dave I have had contact with a MK1 Forum guy who has recently done a basket case like this and is asking $10,000 for the shell.

10,000 just for a MK1 shell that's been "restored"? :-\ If that's the going rate I think I could strip my 60 down and part it out for more than I could get for the whole thing assembled. LOL

Yes I could do the same thing. He's a dreamer. I think he found out that replacing everything was too much time and too many new panels.

Wonder what HP it made, the Aussie GT was supposed to make 71hp IIRC.

These Mini people in the UK are out of their freaking minds.

This disintegrating pile of crusty iron oxide goes for truly crazy money in this video:  £18,000 !!!  Roughly $24,000. 

Apparently they donít realize you can get a fully running restored genuine Cooper S in the US for not a whole lot more money.

You got to look at the video see how bad this car is.

And he's not sure if it will need a re-shell!  :D

Normally this car, with nearly 100K miles,  would be perhaps a £9000 car on a really good day.  But the auction house claims they are expecting £22K to £25K (!)

Seems kind of a crazy move to try and price 1990s Mini Coopers like early ones.

Does the fact that it's an RSP impact it that much?

Did you see the gen 1 GP on BaT? Guy has two, one he drives and one he doesn't - 300 miles!....opening bids up to $39K already!?!?!?
