Judging by the pictures, it wouldn’t take too much effort to “blow the bloody doors off” this poor little MK1 Mini. That said, you really should read further, as it’s a gem of a find…..
What amazed us is that, apparently, the engine runs! Not only that, it’s the original engine and everything else seems to be original.
This does appear to be a ‘Matching Numbers’ car!
Early Mini Coopers command great prices, once restored, but this one will take a fair bit of work.
What would you do – rebuild, or re-shell?
