1978 Mini Classic Mini

My 1978 Austin Mini. I had a lot of fun with this car but I'm ready for something different. This is really a project car. As seen in the pictures it took some damage from a sign blowing into it. The main damage is the dent pictured that pushed in the back window. There are some additional small dents and scrapes that aren't easy to photograph. There are also scratches on the back window and windshield. Mechanically the car doesn't run. It will start and die. I'm not much of a mechanic and this car lost me in a hurry. It originally had the 998 engine in it, which I will include with the car if the buyer wants it. The clutch on the 998 stuck and I purchased a 1275A+ from MiniMania about a year ago for $2000+. The 1275 is in the car but the mechanic I had never quite got the thing going. The engine itself is fine. A lot of new parts in the car but there are some more that need replaced. The front right brake caliper is stuck and the turn signals don't work. As I said, this is a project car. Message me for more details, pictures, or my phone number if you want to talk about it.
