73 could be tax exempt,
whats the reg?


I don't think so in this case:

Date of First Registration 06 11 1973
Year of Manufacture Not Available
Cylinder Capacity (cc) 998CC
CO2 Emissions Not Available
Fuel Type Petrol
Export Marker Not Applicable
Vehicle Status Unlicensed
Vehicle Colour RED
Vehicle Type Approval null
This vehicle can be licensed at a DVLA Local Office without the V5C Registration Certificate
The information contained on this page is correct at the time of enquiry.
Vehicle Excise Duty Rate for vehicle
6 Months Rate £68.75
12 Months Rate £125.00

It's been off the road for 13 years!!

Yes there is the possibility that it was manufactured in 1972 and hung around for some time before being bought and registered.

But don't tell the seller.

Update: There is none!
My wife's car is taking a bit longer to fix than expected (bloody modern aircon thing!!), so I've not been back yet.
Will go back for a proper look see tomorrow.

Thanks for your interest guys!
Mini-jon: are you serious? It might come to that.. I'll even let you lust over her. :D

Just incase anyone else is doing the "was it built early enough to be tax free?" thing I had a 1973 Thou that was registered on the 4th April 1973. When I checked, the build date was the 7th Jan 1973. So if they were shifting them in the order they built them, anything registered after the end of March is unlikely to be built early enough to be tax free.

That is a good point and with all the industrial unrest and the 3 day week at Longbridge, a Mini wasn't always easy to get hold of and I've heard many a Belgian built Mini was imported to help meet the demand at the time.

Pooh. Oh well, that may help me get her off him for less actually.
"It CAN'T be tax exempt etc."

The wife's car is STILL there. Perhaps I get the mini for free given the amount we're going to spend with them!

Make sure you have a price for the work before you suggest that otherwise they might just factor the extra in to your charge :D

I'd offer him the space it takes up as payment to take it away.
If he was ever going to do anything with it he already would have.
Keep you £100 for the bits you'll need and offer to make it vanish for him.
If it comes to the crunch have a crumpled twenty in your pocket to close the deal !

Well. £100 was accepted. I started at £50, but actually the shell is really pretty solid - it has a new(ish) front and lots of patches to the sills.
Not what we want in the long run, but I might even get it an MOT fairly quickly...

So now all I have to do is get it home. But there is no rush the guys says. It's been there 5 years so far, so a couple of weeks is nothing. :gimme:
Pictures to follow.
