1982 Classic Mini with a 1380 engine and a convertible
conversion done by Keith's Conversions in the UK. This Mini was
legally imported as a 25+-year-old classic and has a

hand drive. The walnut dash and Smiths gauges from Minispares
were installed at the same time. It’s been constantly
improved each year since 2010. Reluctant sale. Only selling as I

The only area of rust is a small section under the front windshield rubber. All other rust has been fixed. A modified trailer to haul this Mini is pictured. I have used this trailer to transport this Mini over 5000 total miles with a 4 cylinder Toyota Tacoma with absolutely no issues. The trailer and car combined weigh less than 3000 lbs. One person can load and tie down the car on trailer easily. You can trailer it or drive it back to your location even if it’s on the West Coast with no problem.
The trailer is also included in the listed price. This is NOT a project car but one you can drive every day. You will be hard pressed to find a better Mini for this asking price.
