1974 Classic Mini Convertible
For sale is a classic Mini convertible that has been fully refurbished with many new parts. I purchased the car on eBay from a field, thinking it would be an easy job, but soon realized it wasn’t. I stripped it back and fitted many new panels, replaced all the suspension with new bushes and repainted it. I also replaced all the brakes, pipes, cylinders, etc. Next, I started working on the engine, which was totally rusted solid. I decided to get a reconditioned engine and gearbox, opting for a 1000cc for a little more power at a cost of £1150. I then resprayed the car myself, which looks good as seen in the pictures. The interior was also fully recovered, including the carpets, at a cost of £900. I purchased a set of second-hand wheels and tyres, as all the old ones were split and corroded. I replaced all the engine water pipes and then came the big spend: a new hood, which cost £1400. Although I didn’t intend to make money, the project got out of hand, so please don’t come with any silly offers.
