March 23, 2004 – At MiniGuy, we’re often offered some very rare things. We’ve just been offered this very nice Mk2 Mini body shell, which also comes with two good doors, a bootlid and a bonnet. It has NO RUST, and was sandblasted before being primered. Owner will sell it bare, or with the subframes, which are also sandblasted, freshly painted black and ready to fit.
Mk2 Minis were built from mid-1967 through 1969, and are differentiated from the Mk1’s by their larger, rectangular taillites, a slightly wider rear window, and a slightly larger grill that overlaps onto the front of the bonnet and doesn’t have the “whiskers” of the Mk1 model. The Mk2 doors still have the classic sliding windows, and the external hinges.
At one time, you could purchase a new replacement body shell for your rusty or damaged Mini, but those are no longer available for the Mk1 and Mk2-style Minis.
