For sale is our beloved Mini.
We bought this Mini in a sorry state back in 2005 and spent two years rebuilding it. It started off as a Mini City but it is now definitely cooper spec or better!
Some of the work carried out:Body completely stripped. rusty panels replaced with new. re-sprayed it's current tone of blue. most exterior fittings replaced. door and window seals replaced. Subframes stripped and resprayed. Engine and gearbox reconditioned plus stage 3 head and stage two cam. This is a lot quicker than your standard 998cc!Reconditioned steering rack. replaced track-rod ends etc. Poly bushes used throughout. LCB exhaust manifold and RC40 exhaust system. Alloy wheels from Rover Mini Cooper. Adjustable shock absorbers. nbsp;Mini Sport adjustable front suspension struts and new rubber suspension cones. Leather interior from late Rover Mini Cooper sport.
It was used as a daily runner for 4 years and then dry stored in a garage when it became impractical for us to use and unfortunately we cannot afford to keep it just for weekend rallies and the like. It is in very good condition just the odd tiny bubble of rust creeping back. but this is a Mini and you have to expect these things! I only mention it to be honest.  I would love to be able to provide all the receipts for the work done over the years but unfortunately many have been misplaced during a house move. I will try and find what I can for you.
It has 12 months MOT and I may throw in 6 months tax if I get the right offer!! It has 4 good tyres plus one brand new tyre that will be included with the sale. I have also just fitted a brand new Mini Sport Deluxe carpet.
A note about the milage: during our ownership the speedo cluster was replaced but I forgot to take note of the milages on each clock at this point. I have worked out from MOT certificates that since it's rebuild the Mini has done about 13733 miles. Obviously this isn't a totally accurate figure but it won't be far out.    

We will be sad to see this fantastic little car go. It is a joy to drive and makes any journey fun. With the engine modifications it can even hold its own on the motorway! 
Thanks for looking

Hello there, beautiful car, it would be really nice to come and see the car on Wednesday As we are in the area, if that is at all possible. We would consider buying this mini and if everything is as stated and our personal inspection checks out, we would be more than happy to come back a couple of days later to drive it away, thank you very much, Max
