Agree with all the above but would I be correct in thinking if you look at the last photo in his listing where are the brace bars across the doors and other areas ? With that amount of other body panels being cut off ! and only on a set of dolly wheels and not on a jig could make fit up interesting?

An tired old shell repaired with micky mouse panels and a cheap blow over is not worth 7K even if it was legal

Am I looking at the same advert? I cannot see anything about the log books not being transferred with the shells.

It would only be illegal if you used it to reshell an existing, registered, Mini.
