  • I wanna trade my mkII morris cooper for a jap spec car

    I am wanting to trade my mkII MORRIS COOPER for a japenese spec mini, I saw James Ts car and its what I should have bought in the first place! I have alot of extras etc. for my car, it needs a little love to be perfect but I have all the stuff to do that! Its a true 1967 morris mini cooper vin is correct for motor and shell, I dont want to do the mods for my 6 year old to ride in it, and that would also take the car away from original! If your out there and want a real mini cooper and have one of these I would like to talk to you!!!!!!!

    You are looking for a Mini with door bars and the reinforcement(s) of the MK IV and later cars right?

    If that is what you are looking for it could be a later car from the Japanese, German or English markets.

      They would work, but the a.c. and all very cool!!!! The cars else where seem to be alot more expensive as well, there are a few late model cars on Mini Manias sight that are around 20k. I understand the Japanese cars are half that!

        Truthfully, if I were looking for another late model I would be looking for one with a full length sunroof rather than A.C.. Our Mini has a Webasto electric sunroof, I wouldn't trade that for any air conditioning. You get the all the benefits of a convert. Then close the roof on the fly when the weather gets too cool to cruise with your top exposed! Try that with a convertible.

        Another thing I would look for would be a center binnacle conversion, the late dash is cool it just doesn't scream Mini like a center binnacle.
        Try to find one with carb(s) Vs. Fuel Injection SPI/MPI, there are few who understand the Mini's injection system. (although we have two who understand them in the club right now.
        Anybody else with a late model want to provide a little feed back, help?
