« Last post by MtyMous on August 18, 2022, 03:10:20 AM »
Selling parts as they come off Tink or brand new parts I decided not to use. Everything is up for negotiation on price. Not looking to get rich Just looking for reasonable deals. Buyer pays shipping.

1) Windshield Rubber Seal - NEW - Part# CZH1719MS - $5

2) Window Regulators (Left and Right) - USED - Part# CZH647 & CZH646 - $50 each or $80 for the pair.

3) Carbon Fiber Upper Dash Pad - NEW - No Part Number, but similar to the one listed below (same manufacturer) - $150 (Bought it for $300)

An ad from South Africa.  The Mini was sold alongside the Apache, which was basically a Morris 1100 (Austin America) with a South Africa-only front end design and a boot tacked on. Sort of sort of what happened with the Elf & Hornet with the Mini.

Not a Mini ad of course, but Iím including it here to show how the Miniís front end styling - including the iconic grille design - was really just based upon other larger Austin models.

Yes, normally meaning the pre-BaT era.

But I still think my guy with his Canadian rust bucket paid about $3K too much......

I don't think the black wheels do it any favors.....normally this would have been a $5K car, no idea what it will bring now?

Normally?  I disagree.  The days of $5K running/driving ďacceptableĒ Minis are apparently over.  I checked BaT results for 2022 and the lowest winning bid for a Mini was $15,600.  Donít think I missed any cheaper ones.   Granted, the Minis that BaT accepts are not necessarily a good cross section of ALL Minis for sale, but still itís a good bellwether of Mini values.

I think this car will easily top $10K.

I do agree the black painted wheels hurt the appeal of the car.

Dave,

It is running a Weber DGV carb.  If those are not jetted correctly (usually way too rich), they will flood the engine as you try to go over 45mph.  I know from experience.  One of my past Minis (the green panel Van) came with a Weber DGV that was way too rich and would flood out trying to go over 45 mph.  I changed it to a HIF carb and it ran much better.

A local guy here just paid $4K for a running 998 that needs - well - most everything, interior. Rust repairs. Paint. Brakes. Wheels. Tires. You name it.....it does run - barely - but that's about it. Floors are gone, needs sill, wings......it's a typical car like Dan gets  to repair. So if this mess is worth $4K (it's not, in my book), what is a decent, running, driving 998 worth? We'll see I guess.

I was surprised that just changing the carb got it to 77 mph where before it wouldn't go over 45?

A LHD 998 Mini is now on BaT.  Based on the repair receipts, itís apparently being sold by someone with more money than mechanical skill.  Well, less money now.
