Asking $12,000 in October 2009 - It has been featured in The Mini Experience, and also been in Mini World UK, and won first place for Mini Special Editions at the MCC NSW Minis Down Under. It is one of 360 Mini Sunshines ever made - with very few remaining. 

The car had been fully rebuilt from the ground up. It has a brand new interior (however trimmed in the original - NOS - cloth and vinyl pattern.) A Russell Engineering rebuilt 1293cc motor with 86 HP and 83 ft/lb. Cooper S discs and a 1275LS touring tank. 

Everything on the car is how it should be and a lot of research and effort went into making it how it is today. The car comes as is, with rego until mid 2010, a spare 1275 block with caps, spare sunroof glass and spare vinyl and cloth for the interior.
