That car is WELL overpriced. Have a close look at all the photos and you'll see there is NO way that is an original, cared for, very low mileage car :roll:

Haha. Who's making those bids?
a). A blind man - or at least somebody who hasn't studied the pictures in details.
b). The owner.
c). The seller's friends and family :lol:

The ripples down the side made me seasick. The rear seats appear to be from a Hillman Imp, could be wrong but Mini seats they aren't. The wrong speedo is just inevitable.

£15k my arse. :roll: :lol:

But there's more!

Does the original Mini really need an introduction?

Not really.

The car is, without any shadow of a doubt, an icon.

Ahh but you're going to bullshit us anyway. OK m8.

It is a car that everybody knows, it is a car almost everybody likes and it is a car so permanently etched into the chronicles of pop culture that even people who know nothing of cars are able to keenly identify it. It’s also a car that we hold dear. There are so, so many of us (the writer of this listing included) who took our first tentative steps of motoring freedom in a Mini. It’s more than a car for most owners, and instead is a happy little member of the family. Like a wheeled terrier of some description. Blah blah blah.

The Mini was of course the brainchild of Sir Alec Issigonis, who famously penned the initial design on a now iconic scrap of paper. Designed as a response to fuel rationing forced by the Suez Crisis of ‘56, the Mini was to be small, light and frugal. It was also, at the insistence of BMC’s head, Leonard Lord, to be the ‘proper miniature car’ that would rid the roads of the ‘bubble cars’ he so keenly disliked, but that were increasing in popularity because of the same pressures. Blah blah blah blah blah.

As well we know, Issigonis knocked it out of the park with the design. The engine was turned to be transverse, and it sat atop the gearbox. This made it an extremely compact unit, and as such, meant Issigonis and team could capitalise on the space left. With no mechanical intrusion into the cabin, the Mini was able to comfortably seat four and, thanks to clever storage solutions such as under seat and door pocket as well as a modest boot, the Mini could carry a family’s kit, too. It was a perfect design.
Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.

Christ, has he finished yet?

These clowns are good value though.

I reckon the rear seat is Minor 1000. Or maybe Minor 1000 covers on a Mini frame? The front seats (and the rest of the trim) certainly don't look like 10,000miles or whatever is claimed do they :lol:
