1968 Mini Mk2 - completely rebuilt for sale
1968 Mk2 Mini that has been subject to a 3 year long restoration with many hundreds of hours spent.
I bought this little Mini in autumn 2009 as I wanted a good solid Mk2 to play with. The bug then took hold of me and I decided to "do her up a bit". However. "a bit" turned into a body off nut & bolt restoration that started in December 2009 and has only just been finished. A previous owner had already put a 1275cc engine in but this was not enough for me. so here is a list of what has been done to make for one very special little Mini:
1275cc bored out to 1345cc
Piper 285 Cam
Vernier timing gear
Offset rocker bushes
Lightened BNB40 crank
Total seal rings
Polished/ported inlet manifold
Stage 3 head
Steel distributor drive
Rebuilt 1275 gearbox
Standard 1275 clutch
LCB 1. 75" bore exhaust
K&N air filter
Metro Turbo carbs
New subframe. bushes. mountings etc.
Alloy 4 pot brake conversion (7. 9" vented) with Mintex pads and braided hoses
New adjustable Gaz shocks front and rear
New heater matrix
Now for the body and trim:
New bonnet. door skins. window rubbers. runners etc
New rear quarter panel
Stainless steel bumpers. overriders and 4 spotlights
4 Minilite 13" typewheels with brand new tyres
Black Forza seats with 4 point Luke harnesses and matching rear seat trim
Full custom roll cage
New dials including 130 mph speedo
New carpets and trim
Motl Lita steering wheel
Extended wheel arches
Bare metal respray in Peugeot Electra blue with white roof and target graphic.
This has been a massive labour of love and I have receipts totalling over £13. 00 - far more than I ever intended to spend but now she needs to go as I have a Rover Vitesse to start on. I know I won't get my money back but I will not let her go for a song.
The car is subject to free road tax and has an MOT to Oct 2013 with no advisories. This is basically a new 1968 Mini that is still only being run in so bid now for a truly fabulous little classic. All of the work was done professionally by Euphoria Racing who are famous for their work on Top Gear and this little car will make a great fast road/track car. I have not dyno'd her but am assured that she will produce over 100bhp but cannot prove it as I will not currently take her over 4. 00 rpm until I have done 500 miles (currently only 350).
The only downsides that I can think of are the cover is missing from the interior light and the paint on 2 bits of the roll cage has reacted and is not great. Also the doors are not an inch perfect fit at the bottom no matter how many attempts we have had to get them perfect.
I appreciate that this is a rather long advert but I have done so much to her that I want to get this across and really want her to go to a Mini enthusiast who will spend more time in her than I can.
She has also had most of the floorpan replaced. the whole underside is immaculate and has been liberally coated in waxoyl. There is no rust on this car at all !!!
Also. due to the racing seats. access to the back is limited but there is a full seat in there.
If you have any questions please ask and if I can't answer them I can put you onto the guy who rebuilt her.
Please no stupid offers or requests to ship her to Africa for your rich country-owning cousin/brother etc as I have zero interest. I will only take cash on delivery or a cleared bank transfer after a deposit.
I may be interested in a swap under eBay rules ( I buy yours and you buy mine) but would really only consider an interesting classic. Lotus Elise. BMW Mini or L322 Range Rover but feel free to ask - the worst I can do is say no. The reserve has been lowered significantly from last time.
The car is currently at Ely Motors in Prickwillow nr Ely in Cambridgeshire so if you wish to view her please phone 01353-781178 and ask for Adrian or James.
THANKS FOR LOOKING AND HAPPY BIDDING!!!!
