Justin,

Great for Jeff and you too, as the aggressive bidding proves you guys made great decisions on rehabbing that Mini.  It makes me feel good too because if you recall, my scruffy loaner hydro pump gave it life:)  Now Craig owns the well-travelled pump for his dad's S, so what goes around comes around.

Good luck to Jeff and you too.  Let's see that thing go to $80K:)

Chris ,  Absolutely!   Thank you for the Kudos! 
          Was fun watching your car Sell on BAT too as it was well sorted with details.

  I also pointed Craig in your direction for that trusty Hydro Pump. I was on the fence for owning it myself, But knowing Craig has his Families Cooper S to get back going... He's better suited to own it.

  Easy enough because the hydro pump is now  "Local" and we stay in contact too!     Craigs Cooper S Now runs, its also a 'survivor ' also has a few period mods.  Being a family car doubtful it would ever be resold.

That red Cooper S, with A LOT of discussion about what wasn't 'right' with it, sold for $21,300 on BaT.

Now there is another Mk. I Cooper S, unrestored, and nobody is faulting it for being non-original.  As things look now, this car is going to sell for BIG money.  Like north of $40K is my guess.

Geez, it's up to $30K already with 5 days still left in the auction. And as more bids come in this will really get rolling I think.   This could set a new BaT record for a Mini.

Well, not a new BaT record for a Mini, but a pretty darn good showing anyway.  This Mk. I Cooper S just sold for $48,250.     And very much worth it. 

Congratulations!

Here is a race version:

Be interesting to see what it does. I am prejudiced as I know the driver and have been taking pictures of it for a few years:

I collected a few for him to use in one place.

Great pictures.
Personally i would rather own an S like this with it's scars etc and make it street legal of course.

And another Mini is currently being auctioned on BaT.

This is a highly modified, street-legal Mini 30 with a supercharged engine that is reported to put out 155 bhp (cough, cough). 

In the style of old Fiat Abarths that ran with their rear hoods open, this car's bonnet sticks up to clear the supercharger.

The high bidder and the seller may be working something out on the race car.
There were a lot spares to go with it.

Over at BaT, there's an intestesting comment on the auction for the modified Mini 30.

Looks like someone else has noticed MiniGuy's many, many, many swings at bat (pun intended!) without ever getting close to hitting the ball.

Hi MiniGuy – I was studying my competition for this thing, and looked up your profile. After doing so, I’m rooting for you to win this auction… after being a member of BaT for 12+ years, and having bid on 113 lots with zero (0) auctions won…it’s about time!!! Let’s go, boy!
 

Ouch!!

Yeah, others have commented too, but BaT doesn't seem to be interested in doing anything about him. At least he's stopped advertising his business.....

The supercharged Mini just sold for $15,500.   I thought it would go higher, but a car with that many modifications is not to everyone’s taste.

Wow, first I'm surprised he let it go for that, second - that was a lot of car for that much money. The chassis looked solid although with the body kit you couldn't see if it had oversills….but there was a lot of expensive stuff on that car!

Somebody got one heck of a fun car for a very reasonable price.....

HP and torque figures if to be believed were impressive as they were in the mid 150's.

yeah I don't know if I buy that.....most of them take the HP to about 90, with the extra head work, pistons etc maybe 120-125. But without an intercooler, I don't think you can get to 150. But hey, what do I know?

Still, I think it was a great buy!

Well it was running methane injection which has since been removed so maybe those were before figures. TBH watching the driving video it did not seem like a Mini with those hp figures.

That was my thinking too, the driving video didn't seem to back up his numbers - but the methane injection makes sense - that or nitrous!  ;D

I'm surprised it went for so much. I didn't think the body kit did it favours, but obviously some liked it.

Guess these cars are climbing nicely in value

Another little green wagon....

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1966-morris-traveller/

Hmm.  Body work and painting done on it.  That means somebody had the great opportunity at that time to make the roof not black and they didn’t act in the best interest of the car.   The wheels could also very much benefit from being not gold.

Also not a fan of the missing rear seat.  They are so simple in the wagons you could probably just build one from scratch.

That one used to be on the MiniGuy site a while back - asking price then was about $12K.

Thought i remembered it from somewhere, the black roof stuck in my memory.
At least the dirty welding work is done to what looks like a good standard and along with the new wood, the 1275 and S discs are all a plus.
BTW it looks like Michael Lewis/Mini Guy is bidding on this.

Not to be unkind, but based upon the MiniGuy bidding history results on the other 114 auctions so far I don’t predict a win.  But who knows?
