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.

1970 Antelope Beige Clubman - Beautiful Condition

Post by alexm »

I have for sale my Antelope Beige, September 70 Austin Mini Clubman. This is a test of the water. I bought the car earlier this year, on a whim, as I'd never seen such an immaculate mini. The previous owners put blood, sweat, tears (and about £16,500!) into the car. So good was the 2016 resto, that it won 5 trophies the year after.

The car is completely standard apart from a 7.5" Cooper S disc conversion. The engine was stripped, inspected, cleaned and rebuilt and made 36 of its original 38bhp on the rollers. The shell was stripped and restored to a very high standard, all backed up with a photographic log which comes with the car and a copy of Mini Magazine in which it's been featured.

In my ownership I attacked the clutch judder, which turned out to be a leaky crank seal. The pressure plate was the original so I went to town and did it all while it was apart.

Only taken out in dry warm weather and always garaged since the resto, the mini is still in superb condition. Link to pics below, note the shine on the paint under the bonnet and in the boot!

Now, I would not be adverse to selling to someone who wanted to turn the car into a bit of a sleeper...I was going to stage 1 tune it with an RC40 and retain the original airbox, fit mini fins and 4.5" S steels on 165 tyres. It would make an awesome early 1275GT replica/tribute too.

I'm down south in the UK. Crap time of year to sell, but if its dry out I'm more than happy to take I terested parties out for a blast. Please only get in contact if seriously interested. Will happily make you a cup of tea and talk minis til the cows come home.

I'm asking £12,500 o.n.o and I'm probably going to lose out overall, so no silly offers!

Sure, it was built in September 70.

I've restored a Feb 70 clubman an bnd can help with images of that too if it helps. There were a few early details on clubmans built end of 69/first half of 70 which included bonnet prop on passengers side and mk2 chrome toggle switches as opposed to plastic ones.
