1980 Mini Classic Mini

This is a1984car but eBay would not accept the British VIN number unless it is listed to be older than 1981.
Professional great re-paint, ood gloss but not concours, ome minor soft dents that do not detract from appearance. All chrome removed from car before re-paint. Chrome and glass in excellent condition. The only rust I have found is indicated in the picture showing a small bubble under the windshield (see photo). No verification on the mileage--seems low to me. Runs strong with tight steering. Tires have less than 500 miles. Original interior is very serviceable.
Engine compartment and trunk are clean and detailed, o rust-out in battery box. Stainless wheel flares help give this car excellent curb appeal. It is a winner everywhere we go! I have owned it 3 years and driven it about 1,000 miles - pretty days only - always garaged. I purchased the car in its current condition and have done no work to the car but just have enjoyed it on pretty days. It runs 65 on Interstate, ut a bit intimidating beside the semis. Handles like a go-cart and is really fun to drive.
Now for the bad(only a very little bad): windshield wipers and heater fan quit working the same day; may be a fuse or loose wire - never needed either one and didn't try to fix. Left turn signal works but light in instrument panel is burnt out.Normal oil drip when parked.
Reserve is low and reflects the amount I paid for the car. Purchaser is responsible for shipping, ut I will be glad to assist in any way I can. Car can be stored with me up to 30 days when car is paid in full.
