Here is a cool little Austin Mini I bought locally recently, would like to keep it as a nice little run-around/ delivery truck, but I have to sell something soon.. I have an extended trip to Oregon planned in August and have to get the war chest brought back up to snuff.
~Car has been sold~
This 1972 Mini is showing 207 miles on its new speedometer/ odometer – True Mileage Unknown. Engine was recently replaced with a fresh 1275cc unit – it is fast! New clutch fitted at this time (only a couple hundred miles ago) , electric cooling fan, new brake lines, front disc brakes, 13″ alloy wheels, with brand-new V-rated tires, and more comfortable seats, drivers side power.
Car is a cosmetic project – most panels dented/ have filler, have been rust repaired. Car did pass its last MOT test in the UK though, so is structurally sound. Car does come with many new panels : front fenders, door skins, door bottoms, rear door skins and more.
Can be driven now, starts right up, runs, drives and stops fine.
Steering rack has a missing tooth (my guess) as there is a spot in it where wheel ‘thunks’ loudly while turning. I inspected suspension and nothing loose, just happens at this same spot in steering angle. Should be fixed soon, but I have been driving it like this.
Matching little trailer very cute and practical if you need to haul things around in your tiny car.
As you can see, it is a right hand driver — Nifty if you have to deliver mail, or like attention.
Call me at 912-14-8993 with any questions/ to discuss purchase. Car has clear title ready to transfer to new owner now. Will be 100% title-able/ register-able in all 50 states.
