Oh it would appear that it has infact already been scrapped.

To be fair given the price of mini's these days that would be a good place to start building a grass tracker or ministox

was owned by an old woman near me. needs some welding to arches and sills for an mot. engine was removed and sold on as planned to do 2.0 conversion but plans now changed. generally quite clean and solid and drive well on way home[/img]

 

Hopefully it gets saved, but worth more with the standard engine than yet another XE conversion, or even no engine.

lots of nice stuff but then again lots of old hinges, used clutch plates etc

 

But this one made me chuckle

Yes it is used, no indication of mileage but that is academic surely? by the time you had stripped the engine down and cursed at broken studs etc would you really fit a 2nd hand part known for stretching while you look at it? Or would you probably buy new at £20ish 

 

and this one, "lots" sic of friction material.

 

It just looks contaminated to fuck, maybe wrong but I was always taught it was a false economy not to replace the cover and thrust bearing as you would only curse when it was all back together again. Clearly an almost fucked, contaminated plate is the way to go :D

Reshelling what? Interior... fucked... Engine... Seized...

To be fair you could be buying one of those new shells from China to build up a rally car and it's a 3 door so there would be loads of parts to scrounge off it, plus non sunroof roofs were fetching between £5-700

They've had new mk1 2 door shells re manufactured in China.

 

Sadly I think your assessment of some poor sod losing theirs is as likely - on the plus side the number plate was clearly visible and was doubtless reported numerous times so when it reappears there should be searching questions asked

 

Edit me bad memory mk2 shells are available now last price I saw was 7k mk1 shells being talked about

You say this - but I bought 50 (yes, count em) magnatax holders branded AA a short while after the abolition of the disc for a works permit ( I wanted one, but teh seller had a pack of 50 for £4 delivered.

 

I used a couple, kept a couple for spares and lobbed the rest on one at a time for £1.10 delivered each - they sold like fooking hot cakes.

 

Some days I was selling four or five a day.

 

They call it care in the comminuty
