Don't know how much it would be worth, quite a bit if it is perfect. You should definately put it in the classified section on this website. How did she win it may i ask ? :thumbsup:

I think I bought a ticket to have a chance of winning this. If it's the same one, it's pristine. Has to be above to 3k mark in my opinion, is a collectors car. May have to wait for the right person to come along though, 2k for a very quick sale. Dan

Hi Hepple,

It was the Car Museum in Calne and my mate bought a couple of tickets at £4 a go. He gave them to his kids and the Daughter won!

Hi Dan, I have to agree it is a collectors car rather than an enthusiast. If it had been an Cooper then I may have bought it to go with my convertible, but I would find the City E a bit boring.

I think you are right in that it needs to be put around to find that person. Just trying to help him/her pitch the price correctly.

Best regards

Chris

yeah, i'd go £2000 to £2500, if its as mint as you say i think you'll get top end, or you could always do a raffle yourself and see how much you get, i'll have a a couple at £4 a go :thumbsup:

£1800 realistically, the problem is with any restored mini is you can't easily tell if it's hiding any horrors under shiny paint! but it looks like an nice one.

I bought several raffle tickets to try and win it. It's a tidy little car. I wouldn't be selling it if I had won it.

Hi All,

Thanks for your advice.

My mates Daughter has no interest in it so that is why She wants to sell it.

I am told that they sold 6,400 tickets at £4 a go! Now that is a lot of money eh!

Best regards

Chris

If its a clean as it looks in the pictures then I'd see that at about £2200.

Its a great looking little car, and being totally standard is unusual.
