She was advertised on another forum looking very sorry for herself all the way over in Italy, I live in Ireland and after a lot of messaging, paypalling, bank transfers, WhatsApps and Facebook messages a plan was put into place, thanks to a good guy local to me she had a nice trip across Europe , Italy Switzerland Holland France Uk and Ireland and she finally arrived with me at last a couple months ago , it’s very solid being undersealed from the factory but unfortunately the roof skin needs replacing due to a purgalor roof falling on her during her 20 odd years slumber in storage, no major plans as of yet just convert to dry suspension, cooper brakes and a roof skin and take from there..
 
Enjoy the photos I’ve a few extras to go with it too

Nice Mini and some good upgrades planned for it, those wheels look lovely. You should consider keeping the Italian gauges, they look so cool.

Good photoshop skills :) 

Nice find on the doors. I love the quarterlight window doors on a Mini.

Great to see another Inno being rescued. Good luck with the resto, they're funny little buggers to restore and prices of some of the more uniquely Inno parts seem to be going crazy! I will be following this keenly.

Thankfully the car is complete Im by no means a purist where minis are concerned so dont really know what to do with it, put a roof skin on it and leave the rest of the body the way it is ? Do an extensive body, brake and suspension restoration ? Or convert it to right hand drive and go all out, or sell and build a fast road mk3,

Answers on a postcard please

Has anyone an idea of the value of this due to its rarity on these shores
