1974 Mini Cooper

This Auction is for Genuine Classic Mini AUTHI Mini Copper 1300 - 1275cc Engine, Matching Engine VIN with Body, imported from Spain, Only 4'000s unit manufacture back them from 1974-1978/79, consider one of the rarest mini models from that era, Spain Assembly facility, AUTHI, took the design from the Italian version Mini Copper Innocenti, the one you see on the orignal film, "The Italian Job". As i learned 6 month ago, only 2 units of this model are in USA, and that's a fact, because the owner who i bought it from, was the one who imported 2x of them from Spain and when I arrived to buy both mini's, i was to late and sold one of them.
I purchased in 2007, the engine was rebuild in Spain by a well know repair shop, one of the oldest minis shops in spain as i was told by previous owner, and the engine never leaked oil or blow any smoke, with only 5,000km on the new rebuil engine and I added an extra 2,000km for weekend driving 4 years of having fun with it. I have to mention that this version of this mini came with full mini Copper S package, front 7" Disk brake powered by a hydraulic servo and the famous 1275cc S engine, all in this car is original from factory, not a Frankenstein Buil.
I bought many Body parts to finish the project as original as possible, body panels include with the sales are the front nose, left side under door sill, rear battery holder, rear spare tire floor panel, all carpets and ceiling can be reused, all windows can be reuse, no broken front and rear shields or any of the windows are damage. This car is just for body fix, rust removal, change damage rusted panels and prep to pain, engine is fully working and transmission too, i drove it many years and no issues. I decided in 2012 to restore it, so i remove all the basic parts, except the engine, body chassis, and removed: Windshields, windows, muffler, Electrical hardness, gas tank, basically most of the accessories, from center gauges panel, heaters, seats, ect...
the reason im selling the car is lack of time and money to finished what I started, this car is for some one who knows and understand the value of a classic car, the uniqueness of such car and will give him the love i never was able to give him. This cars was very special to me, and I hope to find an owner who will restore it to his original state.
