£2000 at a push.

It would be worth more in original condition as a sidewalk.

to be honest you would get more than £2k, this forum is notorious for undervaluing things...

As I said, you would get more for it in original condition.

Modified Mini's don't sell as well as standard ones and currently standard sidewalks appear to be selling for around £2k-£3k.

So a car that isn't in original condition, I'm sorry to say in slightly rough aesthetic condition in my opinion would only be worth £2k.

I would say notorious for overvaluing things to be honest

Asking price and selling price is a different thing

I dunno Noah, that's a little low!!

Looking at the pics carefully, (could just be quality of pics!) the paint job looks good, the seam covers look in good condition and the arches look to be well fitted. Generally a sign of someone who isn't a massive bodge and does things right.

I really couldnt say for sure unless i actually knew the condition of rustings, and mechanics etc

But 3k ish?

I agree around £2k is probably realistic. If it was put back a little closer to original spec maybe £2.2k - £2.5k might be possible with a full MOT.

It's a £2k car, maybe £2250 if it had a full 12 months MOT

to be honest you would get more than £2k, this forum is notorious for undervaluing things...


I think you'll find people are plain unrealistic about what they think their Mini is worth, look at the completed listings that have actually sold if you don't believe me

Erm... its worth as much as someones prepared to pay for it, over 2k is not unrealistic in the slightest, and im not new to Minis either...
