Dear fans!
FIpost didn't allow me to monetize videos, which I have to respect. I can't do anything about it at this time. I will be very happy if you could support me with any amount to my Paypal account in order to continue adding new videos. Thank you very much!

Behind the scenes of a North Yorkshire-based, family-run historic car auction business, which uncovers some remarkably rare vehicles in the picturesque village of Thornton-le-Dale.
The car restoration programme is a genre particularly beloved of channels nestled far down the electronic programme guide. Yet while this new series broadly fits the bill, with plenty of blokes cooing appreciatively over engine blocks, it’s really more of a gentle observational documentary about the Mathewsons classic car auctioneers in Thornton le Dale, North Yorkshire. Headed by patriarch Derek, the firm is staffed by family members all the way down to 11-year-old Charlie.
Film of their work is interspersed with the slight grumbles typical of all families, which is hardly riveting - but then Derek finds a rare, dilapidated 1960s Mini Cooper S crumbling in a garage and the excitement builds to an astonishing auction.

How much would it cost to refurbish a 1963 Austin Mini & ship it to Malaysia Kota kinabalu, Sabah?

Whoever made the Triggers Broom remark in the comments below me is correct. All the replacement parts used for this rebuild will be Heritage parts made last week, because no genuine parts exist for these cars. This will need a new shell, panels, sub frame, running gear, most of the engine etc, etc. If the only part of the car worth saving is the VIN plate then it’s absolutely crazy to think you will have a genuine Cooper s at the end of the rebuild.

In the early 70's my 'S' wasn't much better, It crabbed along the road because the rear sub frame had rusted away and was loose....

I seem to remember 1965 model 1275 Cooper S had S badges on the boot and bonnet and they were fitted with twin fuel tanks. That one has none of those. Is it really a 1275 S or has someone fitted a 1275 motor into a Cooper back in the distant past?
White Monkey
White Monkey 22 päivää sitten
@geordiemik72 could well be....my cooper 998 had a 1275 S engine that was never registered....no one cared years ago
geordiemik72 22 päivää sitten
@White Monkey Shouldn't it have the 'S' badge on the boot lid and bonnet? Checking the government web site searching on the reg no describes it as a 1275 but could it have been a 998 Cooper that someone fitted the bigger engine to?
White Monkey
White Monkey 22 päivää sitten
Not all coopers had twin tanks, it was an option. You can check in ten minutes from the VIN. A quick check reveals that is a 1275, so it has to be an S though with UK law ages back, you could stick any 1275 A series lump in a mini and notify the changes and it would show us as a mini 1275. I have just checked my cooper 998cc online and it doesn't specifically show up as a cooper

Oooo...deep,deep mini nostalgia for me! I married a man with a Mini Cooper (not S) in 1964 and I scrapped it in 1966!! My longing for a Mini never retreated and the moment there was enough money for a bottom of the range Mini we bought in1970....painted a battleship grey..... then my beautiful yellow Mini with its dashing black “enhancements” My son scrap that one🙇‍♀️. Don’t like the modern version.....so now....... into the sunset I drive with my 2002 trusted old Nissan Almera. 265 397 on the clock and not a days trouble......still missing a “proper” Mini .

Yes, many people can, but you need to know the VIN and engine number first. He was smart enough to take the chassis plate off before someone did just that.

Absolutely love this show - just the best way to chill for an hour. But I can't understand this obsession with barn find minis and paying £000s for a VIN plate. The restored car will will share almost no DNA with the car that left the factory.
Kiinell 12 päivää sitten
That's what I'm thinking. I can't get my head around it. Someone will pay 50k for a plate on a 15k car, essentially.

This place is just around the corner from me - I see all sorts of stuff turn up outside. This wreck was purchased just for the VIN and engine block in order to use a new shell to produce an 'original' 60's Cooper S which can be worth £50-60k. A new mini shell currently costs £9k and the engine block could be built back into a 'genuine' Cooper S engine.
White Monkey
White Monkey 22 päivää sitten
I'm not sure how the DVLA points system works with a new shell, a good proportion of the original running gear has to be reused for it to retains it's identity, unless of course you just stay quiet. Pretty much everything is available except for block and head castings, the bodyshell is a mini deluxe shell, and if I remember correctly not much else is dedicated to the cooper save for the brakes.

I put a 1250 engine in a Mini shell, twin tanks, high ratio differencial a 2 inch carb and long center branch manifold and straight through exhaust. Lowered it too. It went like the proverbial clappers. I wasn't one for badges, mine just said Mini. Total time starting with a bare shell and an old mini van, working weekends only was three months to complete. Lovely program here.

I restored a 1978 Mini, which was in a right state, but not as bad as this one. The block and cylinder head might be recoverable, but the balance of the car will end up as scrap.

Fcuk - That mini. Why bother ? All parts will be newly made in anycase. May as well just DECLARE - I have a project - and buy all the parts new and assemble a mini ? Save all the hassle of taking a heap of rusted junk home and spreading it all over the garage floor.
WhoIamIsNotImportant 27 päivää sitten
@Team33 Mini is one of the greatest cars ever made. Cooper S was a giant in rally. £40-60k seems steep but in the current classic car market it makes sense. It's the nasty tatty rot box Rover mini's etc that people think are worth in excess of £5000 which is laughable.

@WhoIamIsNotImportant its a mini FFS
WhoIamIsNotImportant 27 päivää sitten
The VIN for £14k so they can call it a cooper-s. Speedo is worth £1k. Some pieces and engine pieces worth £3-4k are salvageable. Yes they will buy £25k for a new shell and all new parts....so meh whatever floats your boat. The new shell won't have all the original fine details, I'm sure they'll modify it to match the original.
