Is the for sale section really empty or can I not see the ads for some reason?

I've been on the look out for a project mini for some time now. I thought there would be some on here but there doesn't seem to be any minis for sale?

Other than the obvious (ebay) where is good to look for minis that need some tlc?

Correct there’s none for sale currently in the for sale section. Ebay or gumtree, are your best bets.

I've tried gumtree without much luck. I will give fb a try!

I'm looking for a complete refurb project so I'm not fussy on the model or spec. A complete car would be nice but not essential. Ideally pre 1986 and in a reasonable condition for a refurb. I'm happy to pay a fair price. Some on ebay seem to go for silly money.

There arent a ton for sale at the moment. I am considering selling mine so i looked for comps and i was shocked at the asking price for most of them. I think they are all way too high due to the limited stock for sale and i dont think they are actually selling for those prices. Give it a few months and cars should start popping up again for a fair amount.

I think you could well be right there! I assume less people are buying/selling due to covid. I just see being stuck at home as the perfect time for a project. I've already completed one in the first lock down but that was a VW Caddy!
