I imported the car from England approximately 11 years ago, o it does have very minor surface rust bubbles in 2 corners of the rain rail, t the bottom of door pillar and in the spare tire well. Even though it is the original paint from England, t is not the original paint from factory.The body has been maintained over the course of its life while in England. The reason for the original paint is the fact that the original British number plates currently on the Mini actually date the car. Britishvehicleswere onlyallowed to be fitted with sticker number platesuntil a certain year, hen they were only allowed in plastic form from that time on.
I traveled across the "pond" and located the Mini in Sidcup, ngland and Ipurchased it from the 7th owner. It was prepared for shipment in Peeblesshire, cotland. The car was shipped to Port Hueneme, alifornia and I hired a customs broker for all the appropriate government inspections. It was inspected, leared and first registered at the California Department of Motor vehicles. It is currently titled in New Mexico, SA and is still on record in California Department of Motor Vehicles database.I have all British documentation, OT's, tc. and records on the car.All records and receipts on thevehicles buildhistoryare available upon request.
The car has won many trophies and awards in British motorcar events. It has appeared in fashion magazines and displayed in art galleries. Allliterature pertaining to the car is available for the future history of the vehicle.
The car was inspected and serviced by Bill Gilcrease at Mincomp Racing Services on April 15, 015 for safety and my own personal "piece of mind" that the new owner / collector will have a safe and proper running Miniuponnew ownership.
Only serious independent inspections are welcomed by appointment at Mincomp Racing Services for the vehicles security.This is not a forced sale or out of economic hardship. For me, ts time to move on to something new and different.
