| miles | I am looking for offers for the shell.
Mini body-shell available, gutted bare shell
The shell is about 7 years old, it was entirely rust free before being fire
damaged deliberately by friends of the thieves who were caught nicking
bits from it.
The shell comes with the original V5, dated 1991.
The roof is a little distorted but undamaged rust free roof sections are
available on line. Rubbing down the shell with 80 grit shows the metal
is sound, bead blasting and two pack priming would be a quicker way to
resurrect this car. I don’t have the time or the space to do this rebuild as
I am already part way through an MGB Roadster restoration which is to
be made into a 3500 V8.
If you want a rotisserie constructed for use in the rebuild I can do that at
an agreed up-front cost.
Available separately are the front and rear sub-frames which I intend to
have bead blasted, the front discs & rear drums, and the 1275 SPi engine
and gearbox which will need a strip down and rebuild.
Four wheels and tyres (Ultralite 12 x 5) with good tyres are also available,
these were recovered by the police from the thieves.
I can deliver at an agreed additional up-front cost to cover the cost of the
fuel and the hire of a covered car trailer.
