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.

11) Members posting items for sale MUST include a rough location in their profile.

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.

SOLD - Original 1100 Special Centre Console

Post by W1NG3D »


These don't come up for sale often, especially in this condition! This is an original 1979 Mini 1100 Special centre console, in remarkably good nick. A must-have for anyone restoring an 1100 Special or for anyone with a classic Mini who wants to fit what is arguably the nicest looking centre console available.
Most of these rare consoles have been butchered to fit modern DIN radios and have nasty splits in the plastic, but not this one; it's very much intact with only minor wear and tear. It even still has the original Radiomobile 5.25" speaker and VDO quartz 12v clock present (no cigar lighter/socket but a new one could be fitted easily and cheaply). The small clips which hold the speaker grille in place aren't 100% intact but it's retained firmly by the clock, so it stays in place as it should.
These originals are much nicer than the reproduction ABS items you can get as this has the correct vent for the heater along with the original speaker grille and cutouts for gauges, switches etc, with a lovely textured finish. 175 ono, collection from Fareham preferred. Could potentially arrange delivery at buyer's cost.
