Japanese model with Air Con.


Interior is in pretty good condition. Been standing for a few years but it does now run.


Bodywork is not great. Would need a respray. Unfortunately, a fair bit of work is going to be required to even get it to pass an MOT, let alone sort the bodywork.


It was a cracking car, used to be very sounds mechanically.  I don't really have the time or money to spend on it. I'm sure for someone who's willing to do this could be a very nice car.


Heres a list of what needs doing (direct from mini specialist garage):-


Water pump is very noisy so likely bearings are gone in that.


It needs a lot of welding, ns a-panel door step inner wing outer sill and floor area. Os flitch panel and outer sill, rear valance, boot floor edge and osr under lamp panel.


Complete front end from a panels forward, ns door and then into paint which will require complete respray.


All 4 tyres, complete exhaust from front pipe back both front suspension cones, front tie bar bushes, front subframe mountings, lower arm bushes, front brake pads and discs front flexi brake hoses, Rear shoes, cylinders and adjusters, rear flexi brake hoses.


Steering rack gaiters, all 4 front ball joints.


Both rear radius arms have slight play.


A good few £ here - looking to see how much realistically someone would buy this for?
