How Much Is My 1293 Worth?
Posted 30 October 2009 - 09:49 PM
the mini has a working 998 in it at the moment but i purchased a 1293 from an accident damaged car so it would have a bit more go
i have spent about £360- £400 on the engine and i know its a good runner.
roller rockers (decent ones)
some head work has been done as the ports are larger than standard and seem a lot smoother
also the shape of the combustion chamber is different
vernier duplex timing chain
a 2" su with pipercross filter + a intake manifold modified by me
a decent cam(cant remember what it is though)
the bores are immaculate (still has visible hone marks) and the piston tops look almost new
the clutch is an uprated one and it has a hardened diff pin
i have a full gasket set
all new service items like plugs, fuel + oil filter and stuff
will also be selling with it a ford edis module and crank trigger/ sensor kit so it can have electric ignition
i have stripped all the manky old paint off and treated it to a new coat
at the moment the head and clutch cover are off and there are no ancilliaries
so what i need to know is what is a good asking price?
i have a possible buyer offering £350 but i think its worth more

i think that price is about right to be honest

to be honest id give you £350 for the min anyday, if hadnt gone off to uni and completely wasted my money on god knows what. its a very nice little min and to be honest it isnt that far off completion and becoming a rapid little beast.

i have spent shedloads on the mini so there is no chance thats going for under £1500
im going to finish off the welding later (if it doesnt rain) so it will only need to be painted and mot`d then it will be on the road
then i can get the welding done on my crx and get a full respray carried out to bring it up to its former glory.
i can always keep the mini in the garage and when funds allow stick a sc`d lump in it to turn it into a weekend toy and trackslag funfunfun.
i also have to get all the geometry sorted as it has adjustable everything and i found my shocks that i thought i had lost.

Ideally you want it up and running, with evidence of good oil pressure, temperature and no smoking...if you want more.
