Great engine and box, fabulous looks, amazing handling, powerful (though not original) 'S' brakes, real head turner ANYWHERE.
Trim expensive to replace, original engines and general mechanics getting rare. A lot of fakes out there.
This Austin Mini Cooper 998cc classic car is the best fun I ever had behind the wheel of a car, having fully restored it at great expense, we drove it hard, showed it off and generally had a ball with it over the time we had it. They are now getting very expensive but well worth it.
