Forum rules
For Sale Section Rules

PLEASE NOTE! Postings in this section are deleted automatically after they have not been looked at for 30 days.

1) This section is for advertising items that you have for sale. Not for the discussion of listed items. If you wish to debate the pro's & Con's of any item listed, please start a new topic in the appropriate section.

2) If you have items for sale on ebay, please post them in the appropriate section. This section is NOT for the advertisement of your ebay auctions.

3) If you have a number of items to sell, post them in a single ad marked "Multiple Parts" or similar. DO NOT post many individual advertisements as this forces everyone else's listings down the page.

4) It is expected that any items advertised on the forum are described fairly & honestly. It is the duty of the seller to ensure that this is the case.

5) Items listed for sale should WHEREVER POSSIBLE* be offered with a purchase price, not asking for bids from members. If you wish to auction your item to the highest bidder I would suggest you use ebay & pay the associated fees.

6) This section is offered as a free service to enthusiasts. Any deals made are between the buyer & seller only. The MK1 forum takes no part in any transaction & the appearance of any item in this section is not a recommendation. I strongly suggest that both buyers & sellers are happy to proceed with a deal before any money or goods change hands.

7) It expected that members contribute something to the forum before posting for sale advertisements. Any Adverts placed by members with a post count lower than 5 will be deleted.

8) The advertising of or soliciting for VIN tags, log books or any other vehicle identification documentation without it's associated vehicle is expressly forbidden. Any member breaking this rule will have his membership terminated with immediate effect.

9) If a moderator considers any postings in this section to violate either the spirit or word of these simple requests the MK1 Forum reserves the right to delete any posts without prior warning or explanation.

10) The posting of items for sale on the MK1 forum constitutes explicit acceptance of these simple rules.

It would be much appreciated if sellers could leave the sale price on adverts after the item has been sold. This acts as a good measure of current value for other sellers.

* In some cases it may not be possible for the seller to list items with a sale price. In this case, listings will be reviewed on a case by case basis by a moderator. The moderators decision will be final.

Rover Mini for Sale

Post by Jono »

My son has decided to sell his 1990 Mini as he can't insure it so I thought I would offer it here.

It started life as a Flame Red edition and is fitted with an MG Metro engine. We started to back date the car with a view to creating a MK3 S evocation but he's now gone on to modern cars (Fabia VRS) and I have a Mk1 project mid build so the garage space is required.

It's a very solid rust and rot free shell - it's not perfect but would be make an ideal usable fast road Mini which could be improved to make a really nice car. It drives very well and is so comfortable despite being on 12" wheels. The paint is good from 10 feet but has some micro blistering so could really do with a paint job to make it mint.

It has an RC40 exhaust and maniflow exhaust manifold. When we got the car the clutch was slipping and when we pulled the engine to sort it we found the crank nose was mullered so we rebuilt the engine completely including a brand A+ new crank, shells, oil pump, head over haul etc. around 200 miles ago. Recently I fitted a new amplifier to the dizzy and replaced the coil, plugs and leads and fitted a good used starter motor.

It needs a small hole welding in the drivers footwell but is otherwise very solid and sound, a great little 'user'. :)

Looking for £3,750

PM me if interested

Cheers

Jon
