With summer coming up the price for Minis will rise slightly (it's the same with bikes)

I'd say your looking around about £900+ for her :geek:

yeah id say £850+ sold one recently no MOT or tax, very solid with a new front end that was in prima and a dodgy painted roof and got just under £600 for it.

Pictures, plus some better ones of underneath.
When it had its MOT, the guy said it looks all solid underneath there, but some surface rust.

You probably will get around that much, knowing what Minis are making nowadays.

They are unfortunately oversills, you can see the line of weld on top of the original sill! Another quick test- if you remove the cardboard liners in the rear 'bins' either side of the back seat base, you can look down into where the inner sill meets the rear 1/4 etc. If there's shale or rot in there, you know it's eating itself from the inside out- the oversills having trapped the grot well and truely in there!

Yup that is what I mean and the fact that it's ok is good sign. Seems to be a basically solid car needing a bit of love, I'd say it will sell fine.

I've seen it up close and personal and driven it.... The body is in pretty good order, I think Adam is doing it an injustice, yes it has a few niggles but nothing which should affect an MOT....

With a new Ticket I'd place it around the £1500 private sale bracket, with a little bit of flexibility.

It's a shame you're selling as you're not going to reap the benfits of the superb gearbox which lies under the engine :)
