I recently bought a 1966 mini...

Im thinking of getting a 1275 to give it a bit more oomph,

I would like to put a subwoofer in it, preferably in the boot, also i would like a rear spoiler, bucket seats and a roll cage?

Tell me what you think?

Heres a pic of it

Looks very nice.Please don't add a sub,roll cage,spoiler and bucket seats to it.Its 60's mini.If its 66 it should be a mk1 but theres not external hinges that i can see(probably my eyes).Its a classic and adding all that stuff we probably drop its re sale value.6k was a nice price if its a rust free and clean in the inside(and underneath) as it is on the outside

Do the engine conversion but I would seriously avoid the other mods as it WILL devalue the car and it looks so great as it I reckon you're best keeping it classic.
Maybe get a mk3 if ya wna do those sorta mods, far cheaper and less rare ?

Don't modify it at all; original Mk2s are rare enough, and that looks really nice.

no,no,no.Please keep it original.If you want to modify get a mk3.Modifying a mk1 like that is like burning a bible in a church :D to a Christian as it is to mini fans
