One wonders what the seller is trying to obscure with all the black-&-white flag photoshopping besides just the background of his house.

Wonder what Jet Motors sold it for?

It is a great looking car, but $65K?

This Mini is interesting because it has air conditioning and it is not RHD.  So, not the typical Japanese-spec Mini.   I don't think I've seen very many like this.

Wow, that is an interesting car all right.....I don't think I've ever seen an A/C and dash like that, although with a 998 it will struggle on a hot day with the A/C on.....carb'd too....

I guess I could be gracious and not be judgmental.  And note that everyone has different tastes, and to each his own.

But then I'd miss the opportunity to say what a complete load of crap this is.

Apparently there is a Mini Van hiding under this amorphous pink marshmallow.

Note how the rear uses two subframes, one of them flipped around. 



VENDAVAN (ICE-STAR)
FULLY KITTED OUT CLASSIC ICE CR»AM VAN
IDEAL CLASSIC STAND OUT INSTANT BUISINESS
MINI BASSED 6 WHEEL HUSTLER
VERY ORIGINAL AND SOLID VAN               
1985 CLASSIC ISURANCE ELEGIBLE
MOT NOVEMBER 2018
PROFESSIONALLY RE-WIRED - COMPLETED ON 17the February 2018
240V COMPRESSOR RAN FREEZER
READY TO WORK (JUST NEEDS ICE CREAM)
EXCELLENT ENGINE
COMES WITH DETACHABLE A-FRAME FOR TOWING
ONE OF ONLY VERY FEW MADE BY VENDAVAN
ONLY A COUPLE ARE STILL THOUGHT TO SURVIVE
You are looking at a Classic car business opportunity thatís probably the only one of its kind. Ready to work straight away in time for the spring and new show season 
This ice cream van is based on the Mini Hustler kit car from the late 1970`s which is very rare in itself and un-heard of in an ice-cream van format. Itís actually called made and registered as a VENDAVAN (Ice-Star) which They used the legendary Austin mini running gear and subframes, electrics, Brakes and most mechanical parts so working on these is incredibly easy and mechanical parts availability is second to none.
The hustler was best known for its 6 wheels which basically is normal Austin mini front subframe arrangement with engine driving the front wheels and two mini rear subframes back to back at the rear giving the 6 wheels. It has a 1,000cc mini engine that has been replaced recently and in excellent mechanical order with good gearbox, Clutch and brakes.
As you can see in the pictures the Ice-Cream van is built to a good standard and is a purpose-built van thatís never been anything else other than an Ice-Cream van. It has very good standing height inside with a sliding glass serving hatch with various shelfs, Sink and working area. The freezer is powered by 240 Volt mains hook-up (Cable included) that plugs into the dashboard and powers the freezer. The Van has just had a full professional electric re-wire to ensure it is in the best condition possible in relation to the wiring loom etc
The freezer is excellent and of strong commercial type that is compressor run which freezes quickly and will kick in and out all day keeping the freezer frozen. It has two folding access hatches on the top and is very large inside giving more than enough room to supply ice cream to a busy show field for the day.
Some of the things included with the van
It has a built-in sink and small water supply to wash hands the soap holder etc.
Twin interior working lights which give a good working light inside the van
Everything needed to get started including two boxes of cones, One double, One single, Selection of Ice-Cream toppings and even two bags of hundreds and thousands and a huge bag of ice cream spoons. There is even cleaning stuff and a good quality Ice-Cream scoop.
The van has glass all around so looks great and is very eye catching, the drivers sliding panel has been replaced at some point with Perspex which looks good and does the job but ideally could do with replacing with glass at some point.
The Van has a detachable A-frame with effectively when fitted makes it a giant trailer with a wooden mountain on the rear for trailer lights. The A-frame is very easy to install with just two pins sliding into a supporting pole, obviously due to its size and relatively small engine its only really cut out for local running around and the A-frame and van being towed by a larger more modern vehicle makes sense for larger distances. 
Itís in very good running order and is a very reliable usable old van. It starts easily, sounds well and is quite entertaining to drive, obviously itís only for short journeys but is quite happy on the road, the attention it gets is beyond any other vehicle we have owned. 
The bodywork on the van is over all very tidy. Itís been painted a few times in its life I would imagine but being fiberglass, it wonít rust, and the underneath is in very good order, it does have the odd small scuff as itís a used van but itís very solid and looks overall very good. Itís not a stunning show car so please donít think that it is. Itís a tidy usable van.
To sum up the overall condition of the van is over all very tidy and usable. Itís not a stunning show vehicle and could do with bits and pieces doing to tidy it up. Itís very reliable and usable and will earn you money you anywhere whether it be selling ice cream or as an advertisement for your company. Please feel free to come and inspect/test drive the before bidding but please remember as I have previously said its obviously not cut out for long distance motorway traveling and we recommend towing or transporting it over larger distances.
There is a small folder of old receipts of expenditure and invoices and old MOTs etc
VIEWING HIGHLY RECOMMENDED AND WELCOMED
Please only genuine bidders and no timewasters as I will pursue them for my listing fee and report to eBay.
If the vehicle cannot be collected within two days I must receive a £50 deposit via pay pal to secure, and it must be collected no later than 7 days after auction ends.
THE CAR IS IN HOLWELL NORTH WALES

Let's see.  New Zealand.  Orange Mini.   Must be the car from the "Goodbye Pork Pie" movie!  Naw.  Nobody is taking this Mini apart and selling pieces on a run from the police.

Pretty tasty Mini here if you want a VTEC car.  Not inexpensive.

And here is another Mini for sale near me.   Perhaps priced just a bit high?   :-\

PRICE IS NEGOTIABLE! MAKE ME A GOOD OFFER!!

Up for sale is a 1983 Austin Mini Cooper. These are pretty cool cars and rare. The great mechanical and body condition in itself is rare!
One of the most attractive micro cars, and it may be micro but its comfortable enough to fit all the seats comfortably!

This Car drives exceptionally well, you can take it to the car shows & for weekend cruises. Definitely gets a lot of attention & questions at the cars and coffee. The Mini is powered by it's 1000cc engine, It moves pretty quick! It has a 4 speed manual transmission. Engine Bay is well detailed. Has a nice exhaust that sounds really nice. See the video.
When you are driving in this 1983 Mini there is a certain sense of nostalgia that you cannot help but notice. The Wooden dash and classic looking gauges makes you feel like it is an authentic classic car, but then you get on the throttle and feel the immediate response of a sports car.
It has always been garage kept and well taken care. All the exterior chromes are in great shape. The Interior is splendid and contrast well to the exterior grey paint with black rally stripes. Upholstery has been tastefully done, and overall condition looks super nice. Has the wooden dashboard and trim as well as the wood grain sports steering wheel. Car has 83,000 Kilometers which is about 51,xxx miles, but I will sell it asexempt. This one has a clean Florida title.
I'm located in Grand Prairie, TX about 30 minutes away from the airport. Feel free to come see the car in person. Any inquires email me. $500 non-refundable deposit required within 24hrs of buying. Sold As-is. Thanks for looking.

That's the one John McGee just finished a few months ago, it was in New York (I think) so it's a surprise to see it offered for sale in Texas. It took John a year and a half to finish it, and a month after the guy got it back it was up for sale - so, didn't meet expectations? too noisy? terrible ride? wonder why it sold so quickly - I know the owner has/had way more than $25K in it.
The throttle bodies give it away, I think it's the only one I've seen that has them.

If I were looking for a D series conversion, this is the one I'd want....not for $25 grand mind you.....

Thanks Dave, and thanks to Bruce!

Well, THAT was awfully nerve wracking.  Truth be told, I thought it would or should bring $45K.  I knew stone stock would have bumped the price.  I also knew some might be unsure of provenance.  But the buyer is ecstatic and I'm relieved to have survived the week.

Now.  Who's got a Mk1 shell for sale?  I want to build a racecar:)

Hey Dan,

I'm thinking more along the lines of an 850 shell for about $1000.  I know you have a pile of those things.  I might hold out for someone who will pay me to haul it off. 
You hang onto that S so if you sell it on BaT, people on can call you silly and stupid, more or less on a regular basis for a week. 4.gif

Dave,

Normally, yes.  But there is so little challenge in that...

Velopackrat. Yes i watched the bidding and was wondering if it was going to get where it should be for that level of a build, congrats on the sale.

I know of a 64 MK I shell with sub frame, doors and boot lid that may be for sale in the Orlando Fl area. Top side is good with no front end (was a flip front) it will need floor/sills and boot floor work.
