Recommended Posts

WOMAN_RML has decided to move her Cooper on and asked that I nudge you lot first before braving eBay/Bumtree/Couponpamphlet Shoap.

 

SC53 CCE

2003 Mini Cooper S (Supercharger)

1598cc Petrol

3DR Hatchback

Manual 6 Speed Gearbox

Gunmetal Grey

111,300 Miles on the clock

2 keys – Remote Central Locking

 

**

 

LAST MOT (29th November 2018)

Failed on reg plate lamp inoperative (repaired), and leak in offside shock absorber (repaired)

Advisories on offside front tyre worn, stop lamp not working, offside rear road wheel slight distort

 

**

Handbrake Cable Replaced: September, 2018

**

 

Bodywork has a couple of small bubbles, but otherwise sound

Missing fixings by front headlamps (aesthetic only)

Will need at least 1 tyre in early New Year

No back window wiper

Back window tint film has been removed, but there is still residual film to be removed

Driver’s door check strap needs replacing

Driver’s side seat bolster worn

Interior is scruffy, but in overall good condition for age

Air Con recharged, but unsure as to whether the system is fully functional – may need checked.

 

It's not a bad example really and goes extremely well but isn't perfect. Car is in Central Scotland within easy reach of civilisation and we'd like £1200.

Will add pictures in a bit.

Good stuff, I really liked that car. As you said before they feel much more modern but are "still a Volvo". it's started appearing in my "Facebook memories", it was brilliant this time last year in the snow!

 

Sorry for changing the subject...

 

Mini for sale!

a supercharger makes the engine more efficient, right ? so better mpg's ? I'm clutching at straws here :)

 

I'd love to have a go on one of these round knockhill, the race series used to be in n/a coopers which I could pretty much keep up with in the mx5 on trackdays, now they're onto cooper S's and they leave me for dust on the straights :( 

 

what a relief there won't be any opportunities for excessive alcohol consumption over the next few days, I might do something silly

If I hadn't just transferred for the 330 - I would be on this like dog hair on a sofa...……… Always wanted one - at least for temp ownership to tick it off the list. I've only ever been a passenger. This should be snapped up. If not - next payday I'm bankrupting myself!

 

Edit - in a week! aaarrgghhhhhhh

Higher power is the John Cooper Works edition. Badge slapped on the back as an option but not always. Basically the increase in power is due to a pulley change on the supercharger. Hence many did it even if not originally a JCW out of the factory.

      Yesterday I was in hospital having surgery on my ankle so rather than rest like the surgeon said I have arranged to go and collect my new car.
      I have been awake all night in pain so what could possibly go wrong! Luckily it's only a couple of hours round trip so I reckon I can do it, if I get really tired on the way back the accommodation in my new car is positively palatial and I can rest up on the heated rear seats.
      Can't wait!

      A strange day yesterday where both me and Mrs Cheeze both bought cars. She is getting a 65 plate Civic which she says she will keep for 10 years - hopefully.
       
      I got a Jaguar XJ6 4.0 Sovereign for significantly less than the cost of her Civic. I'd been keeping an eye on it on Gumtree the last month and the price had been creeping down and I managed to get it a bit cheaper still. With a bit of googling it appears it went through the Morris Leslie classic auction in August. I paid a bit less than it went through there at.
       
      Surprisingly Mrs Cheeze likes it and my Dad loves it. There is some rust on the roof and a giffer repair on one of the arches but it seems solid. Scabby bits here and there but nothing terminal. It has done 59,000 miles and only seems to have done a couple of thousand in the last few years.
       
      It drives nicely but doesn't change up as soon as it should I feel. It isn't going into third until 30mph and fourth isn't until about 75mph. You can induce it to change up by booting it and backing off but thats not ideal. I need to check the fluid level. If it is still doing it after that I'll get a gearbox service done on it.
       
      It is surprisingly small inside. I went to pick up my big mate last night in it and even with the passenger seat right back he was struggling. He managed once I had reclined it a bit.
       
      Some pictures. The pictures flatter it.

      So at least a bunch of you will recognise my much hacked about Invacar (AC Model 70 actually to be technically correct), KPL139P from my blog thread.
       
      With the arrival of Dollywobbler's former spares car the decision was made to return that to the road rather than KPL as it was in far better overall condition.
       
      So since then she has donated her engine, brakes and gearbox to TPA.
       
      It seems a shame to just throw away the leftovers though. Given the repeated comments we've both had from people saying we should stick a silly bike engine or something in it, there seems to be interest in some madcap projects.
       
      I reckon with a roof chop, custom front end built and a suitably mad engine you could make a truly epic 2/3rd scale replica hot rod with it. I however have neither the time nor resources.
       
      The chassis will need a couple of repairs due to water having got trapped beneath the floor, but is overall sound. Sound and utterly over-engineered for what it is.
       
      She already has a V5C present and in my name, so just needs a (Class III) MOT to allow you to change the vehicle type to motor tricycle and tax class to historic.
       
      I need the garage space back, so if anyone wants to take this on as a crazy project, it's all yours.
       
      It has tyres that are holding air sufficiently that it can roll for loading purposes just fine.
       

       

       
      A pair of somewhat dodgy doors can be had if required, I just need to swap some bits over before I'm done with them. Rear windscreen is missing, windscreen is present and serviceable, and I have good door glass available if you want it.
       
      If you're thinking ditching the body, sticking a roll cage on and making a crazy off-road buggy that might be immaterial...plenty of suspension travel and compliant springs...that could work actually...
       
      If you're interested, let me know.
       
      Really not looking for anything for it, but if you'd like to contribute towards the camper and Invacar restoration fund anything will be appreciated.
       
      I'd rather have it out the way sooner than later to be honest, but if you're interested but cannot get it picked up until a given date I'm sure we can arrange something.

      Moving this over here in case anyone has missed it. Needing this gone within next 2 weeks due to losing parking space. Couple of faults but nothing major. Its mot'd til jan and in good running order. Price drop to £300 as is for quick sale, otherwise i fix the faults and stick it on bumtree for twice that amount! Would make a good winter beater for someone
