erm, what price are we talking here (I'm looking at you liam-ds & R1minimagic) :gimme: ;D

Just paid the garage fee's - the chap there reckoned the engine needed all the pistons re-boring... My best man will be moving it to somewhere nearby shortly (and getting those extra pics). As I wont be able to sell her here, I'll be aiming at eBay in the next couple of days - will reply to this thread with a link to the ad for all interested parties.

Thanks again people!

Definitely put it on ebay mate. You'll get more on there without a doubt than what has been said here. Not 2k though. Hopefully someone buys it to restore though and not just the parts....

Edit: Make sure you link us. I'd like to see what it does make

I have seen a few minis in this condition with an engine failure go for over £1000 on ebay. If you where willing to invest a little of your time breaking it for spares you could easily make £2000 on ebay as I have recently done this myself.

It's a 40, it's rare as and needs to be saved, not raped for parts...
If you was closer id take on the challenge of a rebuild to restore it to its original glory.

I do love the remarks which always accompany this sort of thread... especially the ones which infer a desire to "save" a vehicle, but are then followed by, if I had the time, money, where with all to get off my arse and do something...

Yes the 40 is a desirable LE, infact my favourite of all, but it does not get round the fact that to achieve the value which a good condition vehicle of this nature should... it needs not an insignificant sum being spent on it, so the end result will be, the more that it actually costs to purchase, the more likely it'll end up in bits.

It does make me laugh on the valuations section, some people are out for a bargain, it's worth way more than £500....

Just because a Mini is rusty and is a non runner, that makes the only option to break and destroy it?
Especially as rare as this.
Glad job we all don't think this or there 'd be none left.

If it was in Manchester I would save it - I don't bullsh1t

Thats an odd logic or a catch 22 scenario.....I'd of thought the cheaper the price the more chance of someone gaining a fast buck by scrapping it and selling off the parts.

Hopefully its rare enough that someone will put the time/money and effort into it.

I dont have the garage space/time/know how or enough lager to take it on >_<

Hopefully it is saved. I think it's a brilliant little mini and should be back up and running being used, not just broken up for parts to make them a bit of money.
