Has anybody seen a radiator cowl on both sides before?
It looks very factory.
This car has also had a cage at some point.
Cheers

The second shroud on the RHS of the car is definitely not factory. Normally on a Cooper S the brake booster is bolted in there.

No the other side. Drivers side of a RHD.

Gotcha, the way OP phrased it i thought he meant OSF. The one on the other side is not stock but does look very well executed.

It's not factory, specially in a Cooper S. They all had Brake Servos fitted there.

 

I've seen it people think they need a second radiator and do a similar Body modification to accommodate that.

 

There's no listing in any of the parts books for it and equally, there's no mention in any of the Special Tuning booklets.

 

Just a few other things I can see from that photo, there is many other things that have been messed with there, so, this is just another of that list.

Just so I’m aware, would you mind pointing out what you see that isn’t correct?

Many I think are obvious, but I'll list them just the same;-

 

Weber,

Fuel Pressure Regulator,

Dry Suspension (should be Hydro),

Brake Servo s either missing or located elsewhere,

Washer Bottle, type and location,

Radiator,

Rubber around the Radiator,
Fan Shroud,

Alternator (should be Dynamo),
Rocker Cover,

Fan * I think, can't quite see it to be 100% sure * should be 16 blade steel type,

Crankcase Breather - which also leads me to say it's probably not an S Block,

It appears to have a 12G940 head (should be an AEG163),

It also appears to have the wrong Heater Take Off / Valve (can't quite see it to be sure),

Bulkhead Soundproofing,

I can't quite see to be sure, but the wiper location on the windscreen scuttle looks later than 67,

Although it's had that custom inner wing fitted, the bonnet stay locator is missing and could have been fitted,

 

That's about all I can see.
