Ebay Watch: Austin Mini Hot Rod

Proving that not all of these Automotive Atrocities on Ebay come from the backwaters of America this wonderful conversion popped up on Ebay from the San Diego, California area.

Ford 302 V8, Ford C6 transmission, Ford 9 inch 3.85 positraction rear end, aluminum radiator, willwood brakes, discs in front, drums in rear, custom 14 gallon aluminum fuel tank, Classic Austin Mini Cooper channeled body with custom gauges in the Mini Cooper dash. Speedway headers, Holley 4 barrel, Edelbroch manifold, single wire alternator, Hurst ratchet shifter, Steer Clear and Flaming River steering with Mini Cooper steering wheel and steering column, many other features. This Hot Rod is built on an expensive Speedway 4 bar chassis, not some old stock frame. There are less than 300 miles on this hot rod, rebuilt 302 and C6. Ask me any question you like and don't lose this baby.

There are adjustable coil-over shocks in the rear, easy to change the pre-load and easy to change the springs. Three sets of springs will be provided.

The body is bolted on, just disconnect some wiring, disconnect the steering linkage, unbolt the body and lift the body off.

Yes all the glass is in great shape. the rear side windows open like a classic Mini and the door windows roll up and down.

Includes a clear California title and current registration. The black plates shown were replaced with new title and registration.

Buyer must pick-up locally or arrange for shipping. I will work with you and the shipper to make things as easy as possible.

If there are certain pictures you would like, just request them but be specific on what you are looking for and any desired angles.

I hate to part with this but I have a race car to maintain and I had to purchase a pickup truck to tow the race car.

The car is drivable as is however these items are not completed, easy jobs.
1) The front turn signals are not mounted yet, wiring is ready.
2) The rear fender wells are just cut out, open to the drivers compartment
3) The rear seat area is where the custom gas tank is mounted to the frame and open to the drivers compartment
4) There is no grill in front of the radiator
5) There is no carpet in the interior and the seats need to be recovered but they are usable as is.
