SOLD: 1991 Rover Mini Cooper

(1/5) > >>

MPlayle:
"Miss Ruby" is going up for sale.  She is a 1991 Rover Mini Cooper.  Suspected to have been a Rover RSP Cooper from the factory.  She has had some body repairs and a slight color change by previous owners.  I am giving a short opportunity here for forum members to consider her before attempting to list her on BaT.

Asking $15500 obo.

Details available upon request.

Jimini II:
Based on the black 90's Mini with issues that just sold for $13k on BaT you should be in the ballpark at $15.5k Michael.
Good luck with the sale.

MPlayle:
Information for the listing was submitted to BaT for consideration today.  We will see what transpires and keep this thread updated.

MPlayle:
Received an email from BaT today indicating they were not accepting my Mini for listing.  It seems curious as it is in at least as good condition as the black 998 that sold there recently.  Perhaps my requesting a reserve made a difference even though it was a very reasonable reserve?

On to other avenues for selling it.

A few more details for those reading about it here:

No. BaT has a very proprietary and sophisticated way of determining which cars to host for auction:
