Mini Mayfair Coupe on 2040-cars

Year:1987 Mileage:70915
Location:

Goldsboro, North Carolina, United States

Goldsboro, North Carolina, United States

Classic UK mini with a 998 A+ (4 cylinder) engine, 4 speed manual transmission, front disc/rear drum brakes, everything else is all manual.  This is a right-hand driving car that runs strong and is a blast to drive.  It gets lots of looks from others on the road and from pedestrians due to its rarity.  The interior is original, headliner and seats are good but the carpet has wear and is decent for being 27 years old.  All glass is original with plate number etching, the front windshield does have some fogging on the bottom edge.

Could be a good donor for a VTEC or Busa conversion.

Bad news is that it NEEDS body work.  The front bezel, side wings, A panels and driver's sill should be replaced.  It could also use a rear subframe too and body work in the rear wheel wells.

The car will need to be picked up in NC location or transport arrangements be made by purchaser.

I have the UK V-5 ready to be transferred to a US title.  The actual VIN is-SAXXL2S1N20331875

 

Please look at pics before bidding and I will answer any questions!!!!

2015 Mini Cooper S does best gymkhana impersonation in Malaysia

Fri, 18 Apr 2014 17:02:00 EST

Mini Malaysia wants you - at least those of you in Southeast Asia - to know that the new Mini has a riptide of adrenaline and sharp teeth underneath its larger, more ergonomically efficient exterior. To make the point it enlisted the aid of Putrajaya roads, local agency Saatchi & Saatchi Arachnid and four local action sports stars: Fizzy, Shuk, Rizlan and Nasa.
A bog standard Mini Cooper S is the star, its 192-horsepower engine and rollcage-free cabin reinforcing the message that you can do the same thing in a model right off the showroom floor... if you happen to have the same skills as Ivan Khong, the Malaysian Gymkhana Champion behind the wheel. You can read the backstory in the press release and watch how it all comes together in the video below.

Mini lineup could expand to include up to 10 models, still no hope for Rocketman

Tue, 12 Feb 2013 13:31:00 EST

During an event in Ponce, Puerto Rico last week where Mini introduced members of the media to the 2013 Paceman and John Cooper Works GP, product planners discussed that the brand's lineup could expand to eventually include up to 10 bodystyles. Currently, the Mini range consists of seven models: the Hardtop, Clubman, Convertible, Countryman, Coupe, Roadster and Paceman.
Speaking to members of the media, David Duncan, Mini USA sales manager, said that these new models could fall into a range of niches - "any segment that makes sense for a small car." No specific vehicle classes were discussed, but Duncan stated that the possibilities are endless, "as long as we're the smallest player in any segment."
Well, nearly endless. We've been hoping that Mini would re-think its decision to nix plans to create a vehicle smaller than the Hardtop - a notion previewed by the excellent Rocketman concept (shown above) from the 2011 Geneva Motor Show - but the automaker once again stated that this is absolutely off the table. In order to create a vehicle of the Rocketman's size, a completely new platform would have to be engineered (that's expensive), and while Mini has looked into acquiring existing architecture from another brand, parent company BMW has reportedly put the kibosh on such an act. If a Rocketman is ever to be born, BMW/Mini will do it on its own, and right now, that simply isn't in the cards.

Mini may have overexpanded, some models may not be replaced

Surprise, surprise. According to Edmunds, Mini may be looking to reduce the number of vehicles in its range, which has recently expanded to include a total of seven offerings (not to mention the copious varieties of configurations found within each line). When Mini relaunched in the early 2000s, it did so with one model, the Cooper Hardtop, and has since added the Convertible, Clubman, Countryman, Coupe, Roadster and Paceman. It looks like those ambitions of expanding the range to include up to 10 models may have been a bit optimistic.
"When we start to replace models, I think you will see that we won't replace every model exactly," Jim McDowell, Vice President of Mini USA, told Edmunds in an interview. The brand's core models right now are the Hardtop and Countryman, and of the roughly 66,200 vehicles that Mini sold in the United States last year, these two vehicles accounted for some 75 percent of total sales.
McDowell declined to mention any specific models that may not be replaced in the lineup's next generation, though our best guess is that ultra-niche vehicles like the Coupe (pictured) or Clubman. As for replacing some of the current models with new products, the only clear gap we can see in the brand's lineup is a smaller car like the Rocketman concept, though we've been told several times that a mini-Mini isn't going to happen.
