This little maroon 85 Mini is ready to ride. It just had a ton of work done to it by us here at Wild Child. It is also a LHD later model, which is a pretty desirable configuration. Clean AZ title, located in Prescott AZ, but can be arranged to be transported to our shop or shipped.

The exterior of this Mini is freshly finished in a metallic maroon paint, with color-matched flares. It has front Fog lamps that are currently disconnected, the chrome is in good shape with some grille trim missing, and it is riding on 12" Rover Minilite style wheels with some newer tyres mounted up. 

Inside we find a good condition tan cloth interior setup, with a wood overlay dash, and triple clock gauge cluster. The interior on this mini is pretty clean, and no rips or tears exist in the upholstery. The carpet is clean also. Fitted is a sportier smaller steering wheel. We have also fitted a brand new stereo for use with radio, aux, USB, or bluetooth.

Under bonnet we have a later A+ 1275 engine, freshly fitted with a big valve head, new guides, seals, hardened seats, and valves. The engine has been repainted in situ, our upgraded Mega-Cool system has been fitted, all leaks were handled, a stage 1 kit installed with complete exhaust system, new fuel tank sender, engine steady, carburetor rebuilt, and throttle cable replaced. The only other things we recommend is some suspension work, and the speedometer has stopped working. 


This car drives great, has alot of repairs already done, and would make an excellent commuter or show car. It is also a great base to use for your dream mini, being a 1275 / Rod change. Give us a ring if you have any questions or would like to see the car! Offers welcome.
