 For sale here is what started as a 1961  RHD Mini from New Zealand.    Myself and a handful of various shops put this car together over a 12 year span. I have been driving and building high performance MINIs since 1968.   Since finish it has less then 150 miles on it and runs better everyday.   Over 50K invested excluding hundreds of hours of time. This car is titled and registered with "Special" plates in Oregon. An Oregon owner will never pay for registration again.   This car is estimated to have a minimum of 120HP  and is VERY fast.   I urge potential buyers to come inspect the car and if unsold by Labor Day it will be on display at the All British Meet at Portland International Raceway. Please feel free to ask questions.      Car is sold AS IS   FOB loaded truck Portland Oregon.
