1973 Austin Mini RHD Saloon.
Imported from New Zealand in 2002. Originally an 850cc, it now has a new 1380cc Minisport Stage 3 (fast road) engine with a completely rebuilt 4-speed transmission and 3.44:1 final drive. New HIF44 carb, new LCB exhaust header and Sportex center-exit exhaust, 12” Minilite clone rims and tires (2017), brake drums and shoes, rear cones and shocks (2018), most new interior components including the front seats (Cobra Classic), black headliner and sun visors, black carpets, rod change shifter, side mirrors, new hood and more. Many spare parts go with the car.

I bought it from my son in 2012 and have been driving it ever since clocking about 9,000 dependable miles between the two of us, although total mileage is an estimate (approx 5,000 on engine and transmission). Excellent driver as-is but to be a show car needs: Light rust appeared this year on the A panels (between the doors and front fenders) Right front floor panel was partially cut and replaced (solid but the welds visible from underneath). Minor rust on bottom of the right front inner fender well.
Trunk hinge mounting points and left taillight area damaged during shipping from NZ. Roof should be stripped and repainted. Driver and passenger door windows scratched by dried out window sweeps (replaced).
