Found this cool looking body on Ebay, what is it and is it worth anything???
 
Pre 2K Autococker Body Assort Parts | eBay

Apearantly someone found it who knows what it is because it sat at $20 forever and just jumped up passed my max at $50. It looks like the shocktech/bad boyz toyz millings of that era but I couldn't find a single like marker that matched.

Gotta chuckle. This is on my watch list already.

Damn someone wants it, I don't know if I can justify spending a ton of money on a right Fred if it's just some no name one off.

It reminds me of a free flow varient body. Not 100% sure it is but thats what I see there.

Ohhhh an Autococker body.... Not a "Body"

Looks like a Danny Love design for sure...

Just a generic mid-90s one-off by some guy with a mill. There were thousands of 'em like that back in the day. A lot of 'em had somewhat similar looking features because people were more or less copying what they saw in the magazines (in those dim, dark pre-internet days :D ) but just because one kinda looks like another, doesn't mean it was made by a famous guy.

Back when I first started milling for money, the usual 'Cocker job was the customer would send in a body, a print-out of a photo of a 'Cocker he'd seen online, and a note that basically said "make it look like this".

And I made a bunch that way; I kinda-sorta copied a Westwood, once, a couple Supercockers, early Evolutions, lots of Carter one-offs, a couple Brad Nestle clones... Hell, a couple of times the customer would send in a photo of one of my own mill jobs, that somebody had cropped off the watermark and reposted as his own work. :D

Doc.

Lol Doc. I love reading your comments. Thats pretty much what I think about whenever I see one like this "could have been anyone"

That actually looks a lot like a BBT to me. I would love to see the other side of that back block. That's why it reminds me of the BBT, beyond just the standard cuts. That screw in the middle looks a lot like one side of their quick pull wheel system. If the opposing side has or had the wheel, I'd put money on it being a BBT, or at a minimum having walked through their door at some point.

Doc's comment got me thinking, how many claimed "super rare" cockers that are claimed as a known company are actually one offs styled to look like a particular brand? Most of these companies are long out if business and I doubt a lot of them has their own serial number system.
