Hi Everyone,

Due to the current Covid-19 situation my plans have been forced to change, regrettably this means my Mini is now up for auction.

The Mini is in amazing condition inside and out with no rust at all as I was originally planning to import the car home with me.

Please follow this link to see an extensive number of photos and to learn more.

Have a great day everyone and stay safe out there!

Good luck with the sale but be careful with the description. It doesn't look like a Cooper S to me - just a Cooper. For a 90s Cooper it would have to have a certified John Cooper conversion to qualify as an S.

Yes I think you're right, thr Cooper S trim level was finished with MK3.
Thanks for letting me know, I'll let the Auction house know so they can update their listing

Good luck with the sale, but this quote is debatable:

“production standards were significantly higher in 1999 compared to the original’s 1963-’71.”

The write up was done via an automotive journalist. I'm assuming he was meaning by safety standards

In fact production quality was dreadful in the late '90's compared with the '60's. Nothing rusts like a late Mini.

Hi, Everyone,
 
The Mini didn't reach the reserve price on the auction so I wanted to let those of you that expressed interest know incase you wanted to place an offer. 

 

Thanks,
Chris
