Description:

1980 Mini Classic Mini 2 door

Mini 1275 GT production ran from 1969 - 1980 and in 1971, the 1275 cc Mini Cooper S was discontinued in the UK, leaving the Mini 1275 GT as the only sporting Mini on sale for the rest of the decade. The body work is in very good condition and the engine runs extremely well with plenty of power. The interior is also in good condition, and was completely replaced when the vehicle was originally purchased in 2013. Vehicle was imported directly from England to Italy. The vehicle is a right hand drive. Prior to shipment the vehicles interior and dash was completely redone to include speedometer and gauges. Vehicle was brought to Italy where the majority of its restoration work was completed in Italy. The car was fitted with oil and expanded water cooling all custom made and adapted to the vehicle. Custom stereo installation was fitted in the vehicle using retro audio stereo and JL audio with hands free calling, Bluetooth and aux and radio capabilities. The stereo has been hidden so is not very apparent in the vehicle with the exception of the trunk. Vehicle was shipped to the united states in 2014 and made its way to Colorado where it resides. In 2015 the engine was rebuilt and the head was remilled and pushrods replaced. Vehicle runs in excellent condition and is a blast to drive. Noted issues buyer needs to know. Vehicle has wear and tear and a few spots of cracking in the paint that have been photographed. Vehicle overheats when at idle. Needs Electric fan kit installed for airflow. Was going to upgrade to a tropical fan or install electric fans in the vehicle but did not get around to it. The over heating takes time and is not instant. Temps drop when moving. Just needs airflow pushed/pulled into the vehicle. Currently the vehicle does not meet emissions standards in its original configuration. Buyer will have to do 1 of 2 options dependent on the state the buyer resides. 1) Upgrade to a weber carburetor and adjust the exhaust to meet standards. 2) meet your states current requirements for an EPA emissions waiver for a collector status vehicle. The drivers seat has been torn and worn from use. The rest of the interior is in brand new condition. The headliner is also in new condition. This is a fantastic vehicle and runs in excellent condition. I am a service member and have put a lot of money into this vehicle over the last few years but with work requirements I do not have the time or ability to keep the vehicle. I have the original British title as well. Car is truly a collector and mini lovers dream. Turns heads everywhere you go! Buyer will provide finds via certified bank draft check. Funds will be verified by my financial institution prior to release of the vehicle. Buyer is responsible for any shipping costs. Verified delivery options will be utilized.
