Here I have for sale my beloved 1989 Classic Mini. Just finished restoring it approx. one month ago but regrettably having to sell it to fund other interests. Finished to an extremely high spec as you can see from the photos! Taken approx 3 years to complete this mini was fully stripped down to a bare shell and fully restored from there.

Such a lovely little car to drive. starts first time every time on the key! Very sad to have to sell this mini but whoever gets it will not be disappointed! The only minor improvement I'd would do is to fit a set of new carpets which are about £40 for a set but that's only because I'm very picky!
