General question really, been looking for a few weeks and indeed posted a wanted advert up.
Does a sub £10k lightly modded mk1/2/3 or even a GT still exist?

Been offered a couple of nice bog standard mk3's but nothing you could call a funday car..

Does make me wonder especially with the poll on here recently, that in ten years time what on earth the 'in point' price wise will be and how anyone under 50 will be able to afford..

Yours puzzled of Mold :lol:

Met a guy this week who was selling a reasonable looking 1275GT in blaze for £5,500. Didn't get his details though!

He's trying to downsize from 11 cars.

You can easily get a nice late 1275GT or modded clubman for less than £10K. Just a matter of waiting for the right car for you. I've seen a few cars like that sell very recently!!

I've seen one I quite like, but it's right on the south coast and I'll never buy unseen again after a horror story last year ..

Yours look ideal Steve :D

I have been looking around a bit as well for a decent original Mk3 in the Netherlands but haven't seen anything advertised under roughly 11K Euro. And they all have still some work...

NEVER buy a car unseen, even when you think the seller knows Minis inside out, so many will lie though their teeth to get you to part with your hard earned or more's the point, it's not what they tell you it's what they DON'T tell you. Pictures can be very misleading. Happened to me enough times, even recently with a south east seller who knows the cars inside out. There's far too many dodgy f*ckers out there to take the risk.

There's some expensive ( 20 k+ ) GT's on Ebay at the moment... :shock:
Not everyone cup of tea, but I think the best value minis are the late Rover Jap imports.....

But do they sell?? ;)

I sold a real nice '77 GT about 18 months ago for £7K. A really decent '73 GT went on Facebook for the same money last month, admittedly that was quite cheap!
