Wondered when this would show up on here...
I helped sell the raffle tickets, they were £1 each, as far as we know the lucky lady only bought one.
Very lucky, because I have no idea who told you it was restored, it's ORIGINAL, even has the factory stickers on the floors, orig paint and sils from factory.
Slight bump in boot, and reprayed drivers door. That as far as I can remember that was it, maybe a couple of service parts also irrc.
When my mini club went to pick it up for the Atwell Wilson raffle the orginal owner (iirrc) put new tyres on as he was concerned on it's first motorway journey. One lady owner, hardly driven, garaged, well looked after.
I don't know the ins and outs of the interior, but the guy who does the cars at the museum mainly works on the wedding Rolls etc... so standard is more than high, but I'm pretty sure it was all tip top. There was something odd about the rear bin on the drivers side, I think it was a slight scratch in the paint, that's all I could find wrong with it (apart from the door and boot)!!
My brother bought about £70 worth of tickets (gutted)... would be a shame if someone mods this, it's concource material.
I think it's easily worth £3500, drives like a dream, and I've stuck me head in all parts of this beauty.
Good luck with the sale, this car has to be seen and loved some more.
