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) Please DO NOT post links to your ebay auctions. 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 people posting items for sale are "Active Members of this community". 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.

1969 mk2 cooper 998cc tartan red/black £10k

Post by Blacktulip »

I'm selling my 1969 mk2 cooper. I am losing my storage and I have lost interest in it since returning back to work.

Tartan Red black roof
Mot and tax exempt
Original 998cc cooper engine
Mostly original
Dry suspension converted
Heritage certificate
Lots of old MOTS going back to 2003
7 previous keepers

I bought this earlier in the year to do as a road going project.

I have replaced the clutch with a new friction plate, minispares lightened flywheel, diaphragm, release bearing, slave cylinder, clevis pins, push rod.

New rc40 twin box exhaust
New minispares overriders
New minispares deluxe bumpers (Need fitting)
New roller bearing remote driveshafts couplings
New engine mounts
New electronic ignition and coil
New front and rear screens
New door glass channels (Need fitting)
New minispares deluxe side chrome trims (Need fitting)
New halogen headlights and bowls (Need fitting)
New Hardi fuel pump
New washer pump (needs fitting)
Rebuilt twin hs2 carbs
K&n elements in original air box
New clutch parts as listed above

The to do list is as follows...

The wiring to the centre clocks needs doing
The brakes need checking or overhaul
The door glass needs refitting
The washer pump needs fitting
New bumpers need fitting
The door fitment needs the wood method to obtain a good shut/fit
The rear quarter windows needs glass frame repairs
The chrome door window surround trim is not present.
A general check for roadworthyness as I haven't had it on the road.
The engine smokes so needs sorting. I have done the stem seals and lapped the valves in but it still smokes. I had planned on a full engine rebuild to freshen things up.

The car might need a few bits here and there. The main bits are the fresh air tube and windscreen wipers.

The bodywork is good. Oversills are present (previous owner not me) but no signs of any rot. The subframes are good. It has had previous restorations over the years and also has been converted to dry suspension at some point. If your looking for an example that's has never been repaired and 100% original then this is not it.

Just needs some tlc to finish

It love it to go to an enthusiast so I can see it completed.

I can email pictures on request as they are too big to upload.

Looking for £10k
