I’m placing this listing for a friend of mine who has owned this Mini for about 7 years. He bought it England with the engine and running gear mostly done, but the body shell not so good, so my friend’s father in law (who has been a mechanic in England since hewas 15 and was retiring) took the project on. He completely stripped it down and rebuilt it with a newer body shell and all new, refinished or refurbished parts. Since being completed and brought to Canada, the Mini has been run for less than 1,000 miles, so it is essentially a brand-new car that has just been run in. Detailed specs and modifications are listed below. About the only thing you might want to do is to fit your choice of upgraded bucket seats. This mini is a monster, when you shift gears the noise will set off car alarms and send children indoors crying.
