This car was restored about 13 years ago to a reasonable standard by the 2nd previous owner to me who was a welder and has had no welding since. The restoration was good and is still solid with no rot, but not to show standards. It has the proper replacement cills not the rubbish found on a lot of older minis and has also had some welding on the floor and boot (boot is not the prettiest) but shows no signs of deterioration after 13 years. The paint is ok but not to show standards and again done 13 years ago so shows some signs of age. There is a very small dent in the wing which has been there since I and the last owner have owned it.
Overall a very smart, presentable and solid mini with cooper S styling that has had a lot of time and thousands spent on it. It attracts a LOT of attention wherever its goes and sounds and looks the part with all the period mods. I will be sad to see it go but I want to move on to something else and can’t have both!
