1979 Mini Classic Mini AUSTINClassic MINI Austin Leyland 1000
Up for auction is me and my wife's other pride and joy, let me introduce you to OLDIE, the other orange mini in the pictures was Garfield and he has been sold already! We have finally decided to let this one go because we have had no time for her in our daily life's. Oldie has been with us sense are come back home from England in 2007. Oldie has only been in 2 car shows sense we have been back home and has been in the garage sitting next to her partner until we sold Garfield last year. What can I say about this car, well that can go on for days. All I can say is judge it for yourself. Let me put it to you this way. I found both cars in London locked up in an old woman's storage unit for nearly 16 years. Her husband had passed away in 1982 and she had both cars sitting in a storage unit the whole time. They were the only owners of both cars. I had to have them so i bought both. I have owned this car sense 2004 and maybe put less than 1000 miles on it. Do I want to let this car go?NO, but on the other hand just like the other one I hate to see it sit here and not get any love at all. I want it to go to a family who can actual put it into shows and take care of it.
This car is ALL ORIGINAL, from the paint all the way into the engine bay. The only upgrades you see on this car are the wheels to 12 inch and the wheel flares along with all the chrome trimmings. The car has not been altered at all; and when I say there is no rust i mean NO RUST. Both of my minis were and have been garaged kept their entire lives. I have all the original parts which were black as well, along with the 10 inch wheels with extra tires and wheels as well. I actual had 3 minis. Before transferring back to the states I stripped down a third mini for parts. But wait there is more, not only is this auction for the car, if you are a mini enthusiastic I am getting rid of ALL OF IT. From the car to the parts, books, paperwork you name it, it has to go, I have no need for it. So if you are bidding just remember this you are getting EVERYTHING.
Listed in the pics I have everything that you will be getting in this auction. I have kept every single receipt for used and all the new parts I purchased while living in England. As you can see there are bumper, windows, tires, grills, lights,starters,engine parts, body panels, and many other parts not even pictured, you name it I got it. Anything that comes on a mini I have the extra parts for and more.
SO PLEASE DO NO EMAIL ME ASKING ABOUT PARTS!!! THIS IS AN AUCTION FOR IT ALL I AM GOING TO SAY THAT AGAIN!!!!!
As far as shipping is concerned the last guy had someone come and pic it up for him. I am not going to calculate shippin, you should be able to arrange that. I am willing to let you come by and see the car if you are local. If you want more pictures please do not hesitate because I can send many more for you. I have been ebaying for 15 years and my feedback speaks for itself. I have sold 3 cars on ebay and this will be my last and it hurts trust me! If you have not noticed I am heart broken over letting these go, but I can guarantee that you will not find a cleaner Snap Dragon all original one like this one. When I took both of them to car shows in England even the Brits were extremely impressed, minis of this stature are very hard to find in England well kept considering the weather over there. These cars are prone to rust if you know anything about them. So if you find one exactly like this one I want to see it. Obviously every car has its flaws and this one only has a couple of small dings shown in the pics, other than that she starts right up and runs extremely smooth.
Last but not least, feel free to email or even call me if you have any questions. I am the talking type and hate shooting emails back and forth. Please if you are not serious about our mini then don't waste my time. I am a very honest person and been in the military 22 years, so I do not have time for foolishness. It hurts me to let my last good memory of England go, so please once again this is for the serious ebayers who want a nice original mini that has not been MODIFIED. I do have a reserve on this car because there is no way I am letting it go cheap for what I have invested. If you would like to make me an offer I am all ears, like I said please email or call. My name is JC and my number is 207-350-5401.
