Has 1275cc w/ 4-speed, four-synchro rod shift (stronger, smoother-shifting) transmission. Right hand drive (RHD). Disc brakes are the larger, 8.4″ diameter type.
Fitted with retro Mk1 “mustache grille” (normally found on 1959-1967 classic Minis) and Mk1 Cooper S badging on the bootlid. Wheels are upgraded to 12″ Minilite-style (8-spoke) alloys with black wheel arches (ie: “flares”).
Reclining seats with patterned cloth and vinyl upholstery.
It’s said that all Minis have rust, it’s just a question of how much and where. The body appears to be solid with apparently no externally visible rust or cancer, including in the typical areas where it might be found. This one has a (apx. 4″x4″) section in the driver’s floor that needs patching, as well as in the boot floor, between the battery box and the right rear wheel well (see pic). Already patched is a section of the right outer sill (ie: rocker panel) . (Note: in the pic of the driver’s floor, what appears to be a crack in the metal is apparently only in the rubber that’s bonded to the floor. The actual area that needs a patch has the silver duct tape covering it.)
Note: Rally-style door squares and numbers are for looks only (ie: this Mini has not been raced). Because they are stick-on vinyl, they may be removable.
According to seller, its title shows as 1972; (it appears to have a significant number of newer parts, including some from the late ’80′s or early ’90′s, such as a locking steering column).
[ ID# RWTCAMK1 ] Asking $8,750.
Currently located in San Luis Obispo along the Central Coast of California, but might shortly be in Santa Paula (ie: below Santa Barbara, near Ventura in Southern California).
