I've got this running and driving 1997 MPI that I'm going to be putting up for sale with no MOT, just not sure how much. It's a project that I was going to do the welding and other jobs and get it MOT'd but don't have the time to get it done. I've just fitted new front cones to the front. It's got some rust as per the photos and would need repairs/replacement inner sills and rear subframe and patches on the drivers rear arch, passenger 1/4. The bonnet was a new heritage replacement as someone had jumped on the original which has put a small crest in the scuttle both of which I have painted in rattle can, not the worst and not the best :D . It's only done 32000 miles. It slips out of reverse gear but haven't had a chance to look into this, 1st is fine, and 2nd, 3rd and 4th were fine when I used to daily it so can't see why they wouldn't be now. It would need 2 new tyres.

I'm gonna stab in the dark and say... No idea. 😐
Interior looks in good order, doesn't seem to have been messed with, which is a good point. Maybe 4 to the right person but as it needs a total rebuild, probably less. More like 2.5 3...
Just a wild guess as here they go for a lot more than at your end. I'd take it from you but still got 6 months of study to do and I've got no space to put one more yet.

My very similar non-cooper MPI was purchased about two years ago for £3k as a good runner with MOT, good interior -  but a bit scabby outside, with the usual MPI rust to the front once stripped down.

Cheers Guy's, very difficult to value :lol:, I may just stick it on ebay and see what it goes for.

The low mileage might be on your side, the body is repairable and all the bits seem to be there. Have you got all the original paperwork like manual and stuff? It might make it go higher. Not many left untouched.

I'd say 2.5k on a good day.

Yeah low mileage really, pretty sure I do, I've got a folder with lots of suff for it.

:thumbsup: it'll probably sell on a bad day  :lol:
