Classic Car Auction Christmas Sale has a couple of interesting MK2 cars.

https://www.classiccarauctions.co.uk/th ... 22/2022-12

First is an ex-Liverpool Police S. It looks tidy and has a fair estimate. Also it looks like a road car, so no having to dismantle it if you want to drive it.

Second is a '69 Super Delux with an interesting history. Estimated at the top of standard Mk2 values, but does look good and has only 33,200 miles on the clock.

A rally prepped Mk2 Cooper that is ready to go. Ideal for HERO events amongst others.

Finally something a bit different, a tidy looking early A40 saloon. Imagine this with a warmed-up engine and some Midget front brakes.

Auction waffle should be taught at universities as a skill.

"The history of this revolutionary motorcar is well-known and its impact socially, culturally and mechanically is well documented. The Swinging Sixties, The Beatles, Twiggy and the Mini are inexorably combined to represent an era that is remembered with great fondness by many people. Very few classic cars have seen such a meteoric rise in values as the Mini has over the past five years. The Mini holds an iconic place in British motor car history and in the hearts and minds of anyone who has owned one, it is safe to say no other car can spark a conversation zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Just **** off. :roll: :lol:
