My wifes gran has a 1961 mini in poor condition. i would say it has been sat for about 20 years.

Any idea on the value?

I did have some on my phone but i am not sure where they have gone, culd some one give me a valuation of if it was in A1 condition and another in its current condition. most panals will need work and the engine will need replacing.

thanks

Also could someone give an idea of cost of repair? i know this is all shots in the dark, i will get pics when i can but i dont get up there to often

1961, with 12 months ticket and A1 ORIGINAL condition, so original engine trim etc etc ( not concourse but clean and tidy ) 3 - 6k depending on model history etc etc.

Bag of bits, 2-300, ideally with a current V5c, rather than a 20 year old v5.

if it's all together but in need of full restoration... a little more than above, but not much.

We bought one recently that came with various panels, us and three other dealers made offers .. we ended up with it for £200

Trouble is with these early cars so many bits and piece parts are dam near impossible to track down, and now all the 50th anniversary hype has settled down values on even concours cars will (have) eased dramatically.

Shame it is worth so little, looks like it will sit for another 20 years!
