As you may be aware, weíre off soon, and this canít come with us unfortunately.

Hereís the link to it on Facebook, sorry for that for those who donít do FB, but I always now have trouble posting pics up.

If youíre interested, and canít see the ad, let me know and Iíll send the details over.

Hereís the write up:

Due to impending house move, I am having to sell my project mini.

Bought about seven months ago, having been in dry storage for a good five years at least. Last MoT was June 2009.

The reason I bought it was the fact it was so solid, the only rust patch on it was on the passenger door, and I havenít found any further major rust problems since.

Since I got it, it has had the front subframe removed, refurbed, and replaced with adjustable hilos. Brand new smaller discs, calipers etc fitted, all new polybush mounts. ALL fittings on the front are back on but not tightened up, just secure enough to be able to wheel in and out of the garage.

New headlights, front indicators, all wiring checked and working.

As I worked my way round the car, it has been getting a respray to clear ivory colour, but not complete as you can see from the pictures.

The interior is just in loosely at the moment, and the dials out as, as you can see from the pics, I was preparing to fit a dash. The original Mary quant seats are solid, but scruffy and have picked up a small amount of surface mould during the winter in my garage.

KAD quickshift fitted, as well as Ďperiodí style rear speakers. Also has a mountney style steering wheel.

Engine has been refitted (as came removed from the car), with a replacement radiator, carb refurbed, brand new clutch and lightened flywheel, and comes with a brand new electronic ignition kit complete.

My next job was going to be removing the rear subframe and refurbish that, but itís now not going to happen before we move.

In addition, it comes with a pile of spares, including a lot of the original Mary quant bits. Also comes with a brand new exhaust system (manifold fitted to engine already), the hilos for the rear, full electronic ignition system as mentioned, front and rear screens (as theyíre currently removed from the car), chrome door handles, three dial dash (that I was going to use as a template for mine), in fact not far off everything needed to pretty much finish the car off.

Also comes with four 10Ē alloys slotmag-style, two of which have been partially refurbed, and two not. These also come with a full set of brand new correct wheel bolts.

Thereís a pile of history also, and the V5. Iíll even throw in the Haynes manual.

A trailer will be needed to take it away, along with at least a large estate car for the bits and pieces.

Collection is from Andover in Hants, and would prefer a cash sale, or will be happy with a bank transfer (but cars not going until itís cleared). Donít think Iím being greedy asking for two grand, thatís only just over what Iíd paid for it, without the bits Iíve since bought. Just want a quick, easy sale.

I guarantee I have missed something that it comes with, but Iíve given it my best shot😁

The last couple of pics are of it when I picked it up.

Any questions, just ask


If anyone has the ability to add some pics for me, let me know

I hope it does make it back on the road!

The buyers plan is to undo most of my work and return it to its original ĎMary Quantí condition

I know how you feel - it's taken me so long to finally come to terms with letting my trike go - had to get my head round passing it on to a new owner to do whatever they decide with it.
