Without pictures hard to say but IMO he would get at least £600 just for the cooper

Thats what we thought, £600 for the lot is just too low!

£600 for the lot is very little, more like £600 for the Cooper as Wainesworld said.

Without pictures it is hard to value for sure.

i bought a mk1 basic for my dad last year and it cost me more than that, i would expect for a cooper you would get loads more.

if al it needs is a floor and distributor then i would be looking at loads more. ive seen mk1 projects that are due a hardcore rebuild go for more on ebay

id say more like £1500 minimum. but without pictures obviously its hard to say

OMG i didnt realise all the other stuff, i only read the first cooper. how can you mate have all this stuff and not know what its worth

rolling van shells in a reasonable condition will go for more than a grand on ebay. two cooper engines would be your £600 probably if you put them on there

whoever offered that little wants a slap for being so cheeky. failing that ill send you the £600 now

im guessing these are yours then guessworks

i hope my above comments havent offended, but if you are willing to accept the 600 that youve been offered i would be serious about finding the money

i think you could get 600 for the cooper on ebay
