Car description

Hard to be shy when driving this car. People always take pictures of it while parked or moving. The car is a joy to drive top up or top down. The VIN number is SAXXL2S1N10118773. eBay will not let me enter this VIN for a post-1981 car as it's not a US VIN number. This Mini was legallyimportedas a 25+-year-old classic and has a clear title with current registration. The original British registration plate is on the front of the car. The previous owner engraved the registration plate number on the bottom of the front windshield. 1982 Classic Mini with 1380 engine. Bought this car in England. It was converted to left-hand drive in Potters Bar UK, close to Minispares at DC Minis. The walnut dash and gauges from Minispares were installed at the same time. It’s been constantly improved each year since 2010. Only selling as I have too many cars which don't get driven enough. Upgrades I can remember are listed below. 1. New free flow header and complete muffler with flex pipe from Maniflow. 2. GB alloys with nearly new tires. Also included a spare GB wheel and tire. 3. Roller rockers, coil and new distributor and high output alternator. 4. Silicone hoses and an alloy radiator with a high capacity water pump. Also has an auxiliary electric fan with on/off switch to use in stop and go traffic. 5. Entire front suspension, with new rubber cones, genuine Hi-Lo struts, drive flanges, bearings, adjustable arms, grooved 8.4 brake discs, and pads, are all new as of last year. Rear brakes are also new with Minifin drums shoes and wheel cylinders. All are upgraded parts from Minispairs. New KYB silver shocks were installed in 2015 on all 4 wheels. 6. Optional front plastic inner fender liners from Minispears was also installed the same time. 7. The last thing done was an alignment in March and it is 4 wheel adjustable for tow, camber, and castor. The car drives dead straight and is very maneuverable with light steering. 8 New convertible top last year in black. The vinyl parts on the body were also replaced and any rust underneath fixed. The old burgundy top is also included and is still very good with no leaks. 9. Fuses have been converted to modern blade fuses with a new fuse box. 10. Added engine and transmission steady bars with poly bushings. The interior door cards, seats and steering wheel is from Mini Mayfair which was bought used as a set.
There is probably a multitude of things I am forgetting to list. Everything works as it should. The only area of rust is a small section under the front windshield rubber. All other rust has been fixed. A modified trailer to haul this Mini is pictured. I have used this trailer to transport this Mini over 5000 total miles with a 4 cylinder Toyota Tacoma with absolutely no issues. The trailer and car combined weigh less than 3000 lbs. One person can load and tie down the car on trailer easily. You can trailer it back to your location even if it’s on the West Coast with no problem. Shipping is at the cost of the buyer. I can help arrange shipping with whom I have used in the past.
