She was advertised on another forum looking very sorry for herself all the way over in Italy, I live in Ireland [emoji41] after a lot of messaging paypalling bank transfers WhatsApp and Facebook messages a plan was put into place, thanks to a good guy she had a trip across Europe , Italy Switzerland Holland France Uk and Ireland she finally arrived with me last a couple months ago , it’s very solid being undersealed from the factory but unfortunately the roof skin needs replacing due to a purgalor roof falling on her during her 20 odd years in storage, no major plans as of yet I’d say convert to dry suspension, cooper brakes and a roof skin and take from there [emoji41]
 
Enjoy the photos I’ve a few extras to go with it too

Well done, great find. Like the wheels.
I think Minifix have a new roof panel in stock.

Simon,

Great project. Looking forward to the updates. It's what this forum is really good for in the age of blink-and-it's-gone facebook.

What's the bracket above the steering column?

FYI, the Mini Cooper Register's Innocenti guru is a guy called Foster Charlton. I'm sure he could point you in the direction of all the unique Innocent bits you'll be looking for.

It’s a steering lock on the column, I’ll make a burst into it when the weather changes, the car is pretty much complete as is with minimal rust the worst of it being the roof, I bought a few other bits for it from the same guy while I was at it, I’ll most likely convert it to dry suspension and I’m currently looking for a set of cooper front brakes

Thanks for the comments
