Up for your bidding pleasure is my very rare and well-kept example of a 1972 Austin Mini Cooper!! This is a rare Right Hand Drive model and it is not your average mini... This mini started life as a mini 1000 but has had a significant horsepower bump with the following engine modifications:

-276 cam

-hif6 su carburetor

To help this speedy Mini Cooper shift it has:

Worried about rockers or floor pans!? Well Don't!! WHY?

Overall this car was set up to accelerate quickly, go around turns like a GO-KART and stop safely. The paint is a few years old and is in good condition. I will be including Thule roof rack as well. I have a clean Virginia title in hand ready to transfer!!! All turn signals, and lights work, the windshield wipers even work! Oil pressure and gas gauges work along with the aftermarket cd player, this thing can be driven everyday!! The odometer and speedometer are INOP due to an old cable needing replacement, this is really the only thing that I would want to fix but have gotten used to driving without those two items.

VIN # XA2S1N617371A 

I am only selling this vehicle inside of the good ol' U.S.A! I will expect a non-refundable deposit within 24 hours of the auction close and full payment by cash, or certified check. If you decide to use PayPal for the full balance of the car YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL FEES!! I will not pay fees on a full PayPal transaction so please keep this in mind PRIOR to bidding. I don't mind using PayPal for the deposit. I have done my best to describe this beautiful little mini cooper but please ask questions prior to bidding because this is being sold AS-IS. Please keep in mind this car is 42 years old and will not be perfect, although I have tried!!! I will make transaction quick and easy for the winning bidder. I have bought and sold cars before and understand what needs to be done. 


Good luck bidding and you will LOVE this thing!!!

Mini stretches out with new Hardtop 4 door [w/video] [UPDATE]

Thu, 05 Jun 2014 09:30:00 EST

UPDATE: Information on US availability, specification and nomenclature added to the updated text below.
Few automakers have managed to spin off as many variants of essentially one vehicle as Mini has. The second generation produced even more versions than the first, and now that the third generation is upon us, the process is starting all over again. The jury may still be out on whether parent company BMW will roll out as many body-styles of this latest Mini as it did with the last, but here's our first indication.
Following the introduction of the new three-door Mini hatchback at the LA Auto Show, the Anglo-Saxon marque has introduced a new five-door model. Or four-door, depending on which Mini office you're speaking to: while this new model - an addition to the lineup and not a direct replacement for anything previously offered - is called the Mini 5 door by the factory, here in the US it's called the Mini Hardtop 4 door. Whatever you call it, though, this new Mini is essentially the same as the three-door model (or two-door model with a tailgate), only with - you guessed it - two extra doors. The new Clubman will be a separate model altogether.

Help Mini decide on its next limited-edition Cooper

Mon, 17 Feb 2014 10:01:00 EST

Mini likes to make a big hullabaloo about the number of ways its cars can be configured, which currently stands at 10 million. While that figure is impressive, the BMW-owned brand is always looking for new and unique design variations, a trend that has seen a number of special-edition Minis pop up over the years boasting unique color and trim items.
For the new, third-generation F56 Mini, the British brand is at it again. Only this time, the cars are designed and chosen by Mini's fans in a new contest. Called "The New Originals," Mini teamed its 10 Final Test Test Drive winners with an illustrator to design their perfect Mini, one of which will become the next special-edition model.
The ten cars are currently being voted on by the brand's fans on the Mini USA website, with the winner set to be announced at the 2014 New York Auto Show in April. A total of 56 examples of the winning entry will then be put on sale, making this one of the most limited of Mini's many limited editions. Voting closes on February 19, so hop over to the page and vote for your favorite.

Street Glory Mappers turning cars into dynamic billboards like this

Fri, 04 Jul 2014 15:01:00 EST

A French marketing firm with the impenetrable name of Street Glory Mappers is literally turning cars into billboards. Of course, we've all seen vehicles painted up for promotional use, but this company is taking that concept even further by including video.
Street Glory Mappers equips the vehicles with a large video screen behind the windshield to play whatever is being advertised. According to the company's promo, it may even be possibly to sync up the vehicle's lights with the show, as well. The firm claims that it's a great form of temporary, mobile marketing because the car can arrive at the location, play the video and then go away when the prospective audience leaves.
While it doesn't necessarily seem any more effective than other forms of advertising, the firm's idea is at least unobtrusive. After all, it's easier to ignore a stationary car than a person handing out flyers. However, vehicle flashing its lights and playing video could certainly distract other drivers.
