Time for this one to go - can't see me doing it anytime soon and need to make space for a new toy.
 
1981 BL Mini 95
 
V5C in my name and showing 3 previous keepers.  
History file includes all previous DVLA records.
 
Very much still a project but a good chunk of the hard work has been done - its had many, many new panels including floors, sills, A panels, wings, front panel (kept original grille), rear sides, rear wheel tubs, valance and various repair panels - there are M-Machine receipts for over £1500 (at 2006 prices!).
Both subframes are good.  Currently on original drums all round, but can supply an 8.4" set-up if desired.
 
I have boxes and boxes of all the parts, in fact I'm sure there are more than one car's worth!  Rare parts such as headlining and rear screen are there, but there is no fuel tank (I as always going to buy a stainless one from MS).
An A+ 998 engine and 'box.  Turns nice & freely.
 
Its been stored in a dry barn for the last 5 years so there is some surface rust but no rot.  Needs blasting/dipping then finishing off before prep and paint.
 
£5,000.
 
Possibly be able to arrange delivery within 150 miles of LA5 postcode for a sensible price.

Been looking through the receipts - this has had a complete floor assembly grafted in.

One ‘oddity’ is the lack of jacking points - but I’m beginning to think this is standard on pick-ups and vans. Somerford list genuine sills and they don’t seem to have jacking points in them either.

i suspect the jacking point isn't strong enough to support a fully loaded commercial.  with saloons or estates most of the load would be the occupants, and you'd assume they'd be out of the car before it was jacked up.

Looking through the receipts, this has had a full M-machine floor assembly put into it. 

There's been a lot of money and work put into this already - a proper blank canvas just prime for someone to finish off to their taste. And an easy project too.
