classic mini cooper new 1380 engine and straitcut gears. for sale

Current customer rating: current rating for this car(2.05) based on 345 votes

A very sad sale of my much loved mini cooper.   I have had the car for 2 years now and had loads of fun with the car .

Selling due to family commitments.   I could do with a more sensible family car or even a standard mini.

I have spent a total of £6000 on the car and all the work completed.

I have included a picture of the receipt for the engine and gearbox.  


1991 mini cooper much sort after carb version. J-reg.   10 months m. o. t with no advisories.   Taxed till nov 2013.   Starts first time everytime !

 Ok here goes this is going to be hard to include all the upgrades and conversions.   I am sure that I will miss something so please contact me for specific details about the vehicle.

Body-1991 Rover mini cooper British racing green and white.

Engine - Newly built and fitted by mini specialist garage green and white mini's.   The spec is as follows.   All new items.   £2. 91.

1380cc with a host of high performance parts.   Kent 276 high lift fast road cam.   Powermax pistons.   X-pin diff.   K&N induction filter.  

Many new parts fitted during the re-build all with receipts to show the work completed.   Very fast car and a wolf in sheep's clothing.

Gearbox - Newly re-built gear box with strait cut gears.   LCB RC40. SU Carb. K&N induction kit. Sounds awesome.   Needs to be heard.

Wheels - 13 inch genuine rover cooper sport alloys with cooper arches.   All with good tread.

Brakes - Are from a metro with new green stuff pads.

Suspension - High-lo adjustable suspension with short shock absorbers.

Interior- standard 1991 mini cooper half leather seats in good condition.   No rips or tears.

Decent cd player with 4 decent speakers ( high volume needed to hear over the strait cut gears. high lift race cam and induction air box !)  Its a JVC cd/mp3 player with 2x JVC speakers and 2 alpine speakers.

Many bits changed and upgraded.


The body work is very solid.   My intention was to do the important items such as engine and brakes etc and leave the cosmetics till a later date.   Its not perfect but that all depends on what your standards are and what you want the car to do or be.   Its fine for me at present. but I realise that some people like concourse cars and its not to that standard.   The paint is the final job to make the car perfect.

Any questions please ask.   I am not going to give the car away but I am looking to sell it at a reasonable realistic price.   Be quick as I am pricing the car to sell asap.

Many thanks
