This very original example was spotted on carsales.com.au in September 2018, asking $18,000. There are plenty on the market far cheaper, but it's hard to come across examples with relatively low mileage and limited modifications. This one appears completely stock down to the original rims, which is what we love to see. An awesome Group A rally car, they can cost a fortune to maintain, repair and restore - this one looks to be in a condition that would'nt require much expense, particularly if you only intended to use it as a weekend or club car.
This example was advertised on carsales.com.au in September 2018, asking $65,200. This car has been meticulously restored to its original condition. The motor and gear box has been completely stripped and rebuilt by professionals. The car has been rarely driven since its restoration and clocked less than 1000 miles. The photos illustrate areas like the underbody protection coating, the new Westminster style carpet and interior, and the attention to detail with respect to original componentry. No expense has been spared in this restoration.

First Mini SS on the register - with only 500 examples built, it's no wonder! This example has been restored in a non-original colour, with its identity confirmed by the VIN plate. The SS had the LS like foglamps, roof mounted antenna, unique striping (different to what is on the car now), and a number of other features. Check out the original advertisement in the last image.
