A nice Scarlet 'O'Hara Red Mini S Sunshine. This one was advertised through Ausmini in 2009. At the time the seller made the following comments: 

Great condition body and interior - most rust has been professionally removed, no dash cracks, seats are in good condition, head lining all fine (but slightly discoloured [see photo], from nicotine i assume) only 55900kms, motor runs very well and very smoothly. 

  • new CV joints 
  • serviced regularly 
  • monroe GT shocks 
  • new radiator, thermostat and housing and other parts. 
  • brake drums re-ground and new pads when i bought it (around 3 years ago) 
  • mostly original (aside from old cheap cd player i have in there) 


  • i removed the flares to check for rust, and never put them back on... 
  • 3rd gear synchro is worn, double clutch is needed to change down from 4th to 3rd smoothly 
  • drivers seat bottom has ripped
