  • 1986 1.8vvc Roundnose Mini for sale

    Time has come to pass on my mini to a new owner. I have owned the car for 15 years now (was my first car) so it have been through numerous rebuilds and full respray. I recently moved to Ireland where I no longer have a garage so the car is sitting in the UK hence the decision to pass it onto a new caring owner.

    • Solid shell with no rust and steel flip front - but needs a respray due to the recent conversion works
    • 1.8vvc engine conversion with MGF subframe, suspension and brakes
    • New gunmetal 13inch minispeed wheels to fit over MGF brakes
    • Carbon wrapped dashboard with black and white pin tripped interior.
    • White bolt in roll cage
    • V5C updated to 1.8 with correct engine number
    • Following a full respray, and getting it on the road after 2 years of hard work... back in 2010 a kind gentleman in a ford fiesta decided to rear-end me and the car was written off as cat C (too expensive to repair). The damage was minimal and fully repaired (bent bootlid, damage to left light cluster and surrounding metalwork). I have many, many pictures. So the car is a Cat C
    • The car is sat on a driveway in a cover in NorthWest london - pictures were taking around 1 year 6 months ago. I am in London next weekend so will be able to take more pictures, viewings.
    • Car is SORN

    • Good condition with no rust painted in B-66P Honda S2000 montecarlo blue (lovely colour) with a white roof
    • Rust repaired and refurbished elements of the car which are covered in black industrial paint for protection, in advance of a respray.
    • Steel flip front mounted on Audi boot hinges with upgrades gas struts
    • Mk1 grill conversion
    • Fiberglass bonnet
    • Steel bootlid with Mk1 number plate light
    • Carbon flat boot floor
    • Battery behind drivers seat
    Engine conversion:
    • MGF front subframe, suspension arms (bought new) and brakes (discs were new)
    • Gaz coil overs on front
    • 1.8VVC from a 1998 MGF
    • VVC head and unit professionally rebuilt
    • New camblet kit and water pump
    • Aluminium MPI radiator with heater deleted
    • Full new loom
    • MGF (nonVVC) gearbox for longer final drive (motorway cruising)
    • Full stainless manifold and 3 inch double box exhaust
    • Has a modified carb fuel tank, with a external fuel pump (reverse line runs through the fuel sender, pump mounted under boot floor) however there is an MPI fuel tank which will come with the car ready to be fitted.

    Rear subframe
    • Brand new rear subframe
    • reconditioned hubs, new bearings and shoes
    • new flexi brake lines fitted
    • new gaz shocks
    • new bushes

    • Fiberglass dashboard wrapped in matt carbon
    • 120mph centre cooper S speedo.
    • Matching carbon dails
    • cobra bucket seats with white pin stripe
    • no rear seats
    • full bolt in white powder coated roll cage
    Once the car gets a respray and probably a service... it would be an amazing mini worthy of being a show car but it needs a news owner with the space to do it.

    I don't really know what it's worth but it has had thousands spent on it and for a c.2k respray I think it would be worth c.10k therefore asking for £8k.

    Happy to discuss for interested parties and I have many many pictures which I can whatsapp you if you Dm me
