New member looking to buy a 1st gen GP

Hi guys.

After admiring the 1st gen GP for a few years I've started to have a look at them.

Is there a buyers guide for these? Is there anything I should be looking out for that effects this model?

I've seen they can have problems with faking paint and I've seen one that had the paint kinda worn away to the white base coat on the edge of the panel that meets the back of the bonnet/hood. Is this normal?

Hi ya and welcome

They have the same basic problems as the cooper and cooper s.

Buy one that is known and looked after and un modded. I don't know if you have tried here but might be worth a try if you have not have a look :-)
