This little mini will put a smile on your face! It is great for
someone who wants a left hand drive roll up window car, or someone
that wants a fun toy for a low price. It drives really good, and
with a tad bit of TLC it would be a great daily! Clean Arizona
title, ready to rock. The outside of the car does have a few
trouble spots. Various small areas of rust on the seams, with some
oxidation on the chrome. The sills have been replaced before, and
there is no heavy rust on the underside. The right hand door does
have a large chunk of filler flaking off as pictured. The roof also
has a small area with the clear coat peeled away. Apart from that
the paint has a decent shine to it, and is dent free. It has been
fitted with small flares, wing mirrors, and lowered. It is also
sporting some over-riders on the front and rear bumpers, as well as
glass marker lamps for that old school look. To complete it we find
Mk II rear lamps and cooper badges. It is riding on 12' Steel
wheels with old winter tires that will need to be replaced to be
considered reliable. Inside we find a clean, but standard interior,
although the headrests are missing. The door hardware has been
replaced with a polished set for that nice touch, along with a
custom bias shifter. The steering wheel is the ever so popular
moto-lita type, which pairs well with the Mk I/II dashboard
conversion. The gauges are not genuine smiths, however, so the temp
gauge is currently not functioning, which we would advise replacing
before any long drives. Powering this mini is a 998 A Plus engine
that surprisingly has quite a bit of snap to it! This is coupled to
a rod change manual gearbox, which shifts smooth with no signs of
synchro wear, and the clutch feels great- thanks to its new
hydraulic components. The engine just received an oil service
before it left too, so another thing not to worry about! All fluids
are clean and full. The only issues found were very small things
like oil leaks and an air filter.
