Hi,

New to the forum, was advised to post on here as donedeal and other sites aren’t helping. I am looking for a complete mini from 1970 to 1990, not fussed on colour etc. it’s for a surprise present for my father, so looking something needing small restoration work but something presentable, looking to ideally spend 2-3k but will spend more if car suits, thanks in advance

2/3k even up to 4k will get u a rarely ok ish car......if u get a pre 1980s car youll get away with nct but 1980 on will need testing. Be careful as there are scammers plating up 90s minis with 70s plates to avoid nct and tax as vintage tax is 56€ per year. So. Make sure u know wat your looking at :)

Yeah I understand that there going up in value for a good one, how would i know if the car is on the wrong plates? Just the vin/chassis number check would it be?

I would have to see pictures of it first, I’m not sure if I can post my email address in a forum is that allowed on this site?
