if you want to buy south you can ship (or come and trailer)

Since you'd have shipping issues I'd give you mine for $11,000 ($1000 off asking) if interested PM me

Owned since 2004, 1979 body shell with many retro parts like MK1 front grill, tail lites and boot lid; 1275 A+ block with sport intake manifold and SU-44 1 3/4 inch carb, LCB to Play Mini stainless twin DTM exhaust, debadged and debumpered, front clip is FRG; Cobra Classic seats, Rokee dash, Safety Devices full roll cage; Cooper S 7.5 disks up front, 6x10 GB MiniLite clone wheels (painted black spokes) ... much more

Why would I sell ... hip issues make getting in and out and even many maintenance issues difficult ... picture is from Orlando Fl show this past April .... 2nd place Mini

editorial comment

my brother lives up your way and on his bucket list was owning a Ferrari

he bought one

and after a few months sold it at a huge loss

seems he quickly discovered it was not a practical car up there ....

if buying a Mini for anything more than an occasional driver toy where you live ... I'd suggest you reconsider how to spend your recreational dollar.

thanks for the replys guys
but
as a mechanic by trade
I don't buy cars
with out physically seeing them first.
that's why I was hoping to
find one local
to me..
sure it's a long shot but
they do pop up every now and then.

Boost, the Guy that listed the Mini,s on CL Phoenix is a Mini Head it could not hurt to chat with him. Maybe when you get tired of the snow you can come out her enjoy the sunshine and kick some tires.

I would be very careful about dealing with them as my best friend had to sue him to get his money back over a Mini pickup he bought and even flew to the UK and drove. Long story but shady as could be.

Totally understand as I see it all the time with modern MINIs. But with Classic Minis I've been around them all my life so I know about them and yet I still see people buy total piles of crap and think they are getting something great only to dump a fortune in it just to make it what they thought it was when they could have bought a nice car to start with for less.
