Turns out it is the Mini owned by Ventura resident/Mini fan James R. that he adopted from us over a year ago, but now it’s sporting a new paint job and a bunch of new goodies!
If you look on our Consignment pages, you’ll see ID# FK7120, but it was a tired light green then. It still has a 1275cc, but now with a lot of underhood detailing and an RC40 exhaust, among other improvements.
James R. painted this Mini himself, in his back yard no less. You’d never know it, since it looks pretty darn good.
He’s willing to let it go to a new home, since he’s looking to finance his next project, and the fun for him is in the restoration work itself, not in the driving and showing. He’d rather let someone else enjoy the fruits of his labors, and get right back into getting his hands dirty on his next project – a horsepower transplant on his Russian-built, vintage-style “Ural” motorcycle and sidecar combo. He’s also looking at British convertible sports cars too, so drop us a note if you have something interesting to trade (preferably, a plus-cash-to-James deal).
We’ll be posting more pics, and an updated price to the Consignment page soon, but drop us an email in the mean time if you’re interested in more details or a sneak peek!
