~ Welcome to my reluctant auction for my beloved 1992 mini cooper SPI.  Genuine 69000 miles. This is a genuine sale and I am very sorry that shes got to go but I'm back at University and not earning now!!

I have owned this car for just over 3 years in which it has always been dry stored. I bought the car running and has been while in my possession. The car is MOT'd till April 2013 but is currently SORN. The car is now 20 yrs old so please don't expect a sparkling new car all the mod cons, she does drop a little oil and have a little rust!!

This is so much fun to drive and the quirkiest car I've ever owned! She has recently done 2 trips to London with no troubles whatsoever!

As with all classic mini's there are a few not so perfect areas!

The cardoes smoke under heavy acceleration, the previous owner informed me he changed the piston rings and I saw the photos. I've done a compression test and 4 is running 30 lower than the rest. I was going to get a small rebore but ran out of time.

The car was properly de-seamed long before I owned it. The seams are starting to bubble and show rust slightly in some places. The main body looks rust free to me (subframes,sills,floor, inner arches, boot floor) there is cosmetic rust showing around both bumpers,bootlid. The passenger door step was welded for last MOT, (not a great job)

The bonnet has a kink in it from when it wasn't properly stowed so there is some chipped paint work around the bonnet.

Speedo cable snapped last month, passenger seat belt faulty

This car would suit someone who wants a little project or isnt to worried about driving a show car around! With tax you can drive her away with a smile on your face!!

I have tried to be as honest as I can about the car, if i remember anything else I'll update the auction.

There is NO BUY IT NOW PRICE, I'm happy to let the auction run. I know what these cars are worth but I'm just looking to cover what I paid.

The car is sold as seen.
