The other point of view is that that's all the money for a cobbled up mess like that.

There was a guy complaining on FB that his TR6 didn't bring his reserve on BaT, like somehow he was owed a better deal than he was offered. His car was nicely built, but modified considerably and not to the taste of what most TR6 buyers want - yet he thought it was worth $35k or more, cause that's what he had in it....when most TR6's bring in the high teens or so.....

His car might be worth that to someone, but he didn't find them on BaT that week.

Generally speaking, when it comes to car restoration/modification, you rarely get back out of it what you put into it unless you just happen catch the timing just right and do most of the work yourself.

Buy/fix what you like and enjoy, that way it doesn't sting so much when you sell it for a loss LOL

That has been my general approach to most of the Minis I have owned.

Another way to look at it is why are you building your car for someone else? Build it, enjoy it, keep it, drive it.

If you get your enjoyment from the build......OK. Then whatever you get from the sale you're good.

Getting reaady to sell the Austin mini 850. How do you think it will do on BAT? Have to gather info and photos.

MK I's generally do well especially if they are already CA registered.

The AWD Vtec I think did all the money, I sure would not have wanted it at any price.
Also to mess up an Innocenti like that is a sin and what was that vin number all about?

A Mini Countryman is now on BaT.  Wonder if the lackluster color will hurt it?

A late-model Mini Cooper is now on BaT andÖ surprisingly itís not from Japan.  Itís from the UK.    And itís been in Canada for a while.  Two red flags locations for rust issues. But rust has said to have been fixed.  Wonder how it will do at auction?

Looks strangely familiar.....   ;D

Nice that Canada let him keep it in country by just paying the taxes and fees. In the US it would have been crushed.

The green woody sold for $18K.  Thatís a pretty low price for a rarer Mini model.

The Cooper from Scotland is at only $10K with less than 30 min to go.

The red/black S sold for $38,500.
Nice car with minimal previous rust repair and LHD, I thought it should have done $40k but $38,500 is pretty close.

I thought it was enough money too with rust issues, old tires, and a big area of the gearbox case covered in what looked like JB weld which the owner never did answer to.
I am betting someone is going to have buyers remorse.

1989 Mini 30 for sale on BaT.
Its an automatic with only 15k verifiable miles and in really nice shape.
I am wondering how much the auto will affect the bidding.
