Definitely not for sale
But out of interest, what do we think our mini would be worth if it were in the UK. Me and my father in law have disagreements.

It's a 1964 mk1 Morris 850. Assembled in Australia (knock down kit I believe).

Everything seems original. It has 30 thousand miles on the click but we have limited history.

Every panel looks to be the original, there is zero rust. It may have had a respray but in the original colour as it is almond green all over and inside and underneath. Never been undersealed.
Mechanically in good shape. Just had it's cones and shocks replaced as they were very tired.
Interior is all original but tired. The seats have been re-covered at some point in green vinyl. Sorry, no pics of inside.

What would it be worth on our shores? In all its slidey window, magic wand gear lever, floor starter 850 glory?

£5,432-10............is as good a guess as any.  See the Mini Neon the the guy in Yorkshire has just sold.

 

As with every thing, it is worth what somebody else is prepare to pay for it, on the day that you want to sell it.

 

If the seats are the same colour as the interior rear side panels , the seats are unlikely to have been recovered and if the 30,000 miles on the odometer are correct, and it has not stood out in the elements, the paintwork may well not have been resprayed.

Aussie assembled cars always had some amount of local content, by 1964 they started pressing some panels here. I don't recall Almond Green being an available colour, the original colour is on the build plate in the engine bay.

It's probably not actually actual almond green. I just always say it is.

It's always felt more 'solid' to me than a UK mini, especially later cars. But maybe this is a mk1 thing as I've never owned an early UK car.

I'd expect to pay £7-£10k for a good Mk1, possibly more for a special one.  Am always looking for the right one for me!
