The whole of this mini is stripped, the engine has had some work done and requires finishing as does the body . It is a project and will be worth a substantial amount when finished.
It has NO rear side windows and no wheels
Heritage certificate and Cooper V5 log book stating correct colours.
Itís a project and not a whole original car I know, but it is a very good starting point . It appears that minis are Increasingly price and are a sound investment for the future . Iím selling as I do not have the time to complete it and my passion is more for two wheel vehicles.
Any questions please ask away . As long as not to technical as I am not an engineer.
