I'd say £3k with which will give room for negotiation. Rust in the boot is not pretty and could put buyers off but other than that it is a nice mini :shifty:

Thanks, yeah that boot section aint pretty but its helped to lower the price by a few grand and if someone can do a bit of welding then its possibly got a bit proffit left it in too.

If it doesnt sell I will spend a day welding the back up and use it for the show season, It's a really nice car to drive and even more so on a hot day.

I have decided after talking to Shify I will put her out at £2950 and take a very near offer.

Funny thing is I have seen late sportpack minis that are not very rare make more money with just the same rust... go figure?

Maybe I should put her up at £5k on the bay and be like everyone else? lol

It should drive its self away at less than 3k but times are hard and there hasnt been much interest.
I think ebay may be the way to go on her.

VAT sucks doesnt it

The car has a new owner and won 3rd in a concours competition at cannon hill :D

I like happy endings too :P

Waine: Red one mate, was on for £5 something bid and £6k buy it now. The car was parked on the side of the road just as you left L2B Crystal palace.

Although yours is another at that money.

The guy who now owns this got it for less than advertised and I broke even so we are both happy... I now have my orange cabrio back >_<
