Want to sell something? Here's the place to list it for free! (DIRECT SALES / SWAPS) No ebay links please.
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.

Newly Restored 1969 Cooper

Post by gavinj68 »

Fully restored ‘in period’ modified 1969 Mini Cooper, full (low) ownership history and remained local since new. Laid up for decades before a friend purchased it and had some recommissioning carried out (badly) in an attempt to make it ‘useable’ but never accomplished it, I purchased from him in 2017 and it became apparent a full restoration was required. The shell was fully bare metal restored by South Western Coachworks (100’s of pictures available) whilst I fully restored all the mechanicals to perfect condition before a methodical rebuild completed the job.
Period tuned 1340cc engine rebuilt correctly and dyno run in and set up on Swiftune engine dyno ( 114 bhp / 100 lb/ft). ADO16 cooling system, rebuilt period ‘Abingdon’ SCCR gear train with Salisbury 3.9 LSD, Cooper S hubs and brakes, twin tanks with double ended SU fuel pump, original Speedwell wheels, genuine key adjustable Ripspeed Hi-Lo’s, adjustable geometry, fully braided brake and fuel lines, lower engine steady, large oil cooler, electrical cutout, brake bias adjustment.
All invoices including much period paperwork along with memory stick of pictures (including prior rebuild in the early 80’s)
Currently used for some commuting duties so proven reliability and super fun.
Fully specification write up and history by email. Located in #hampshire
£18500 ono
