It will be very difficult to find as solid a mini as this one. Both subframes look like new with no structural rust anywhere. Sills and A panels are solid and the paint looks great.
II just finished refreshing the engine with new cam, con rod and main bearings as well as new piston rings and valve seals. I also fitted a new clutch.
Oil pressure is about 90lbs cold and settles to 70-80 when warm. In the last week I replaced the clutch master, clutch slave cylinders and hoses.
Other work I did includes new door, trunk and window seals, new smaller steering wheel ( I have the original in great shape), replaced disc and rear brake pads and both universal joints on drive shafts for which I used the later joints with bearings and nylon cups.
On the original side, it does have sliding front windows, floor mounted starter button, magic wand gear shift, closed system heater and the drop-down rear number plate. Moocher is a blast to drive and I am sad to see her go but I have too many projects and not enough time.
