Very difficult to value.... and likewise very difficult to sell...

You have two basic issues...

Insurance for the vehicle is going to be nigh-on impossible for anyone < 25, which probably puts out 90% of the people who want a customised mini of this type.

It's obviously not a 1960's mini ( historical plate, tax and right trouble if DVLA/VOSA clamp down on questionable vehicles )

If it were mine, I'd like to see £5k, but in all honesty, I think you'll struggle to sell, it's one of those right time, right person cars....

If it's a matter of need to sell, I could see it going down to less than half that.

Hi all thanks for your input, will put it on ebay but offer a part ex
in the hope of getting somewhere near that figure.

The paint code is "R-78P" if that helps. :P

Couldn't agree more.

Its a nice car but dated by the bodykit and colour, if it were black then it would be much more saleable.

I think the issue of plates is gonna get more and more of a problem as time goes on.

I'd have thought that to the right buyer £3.5 to £4 would be achievable.
