For three grand, I’d drive around on the right hand side.
But more of the sign of our times, check out the last sentence in this ad. “Text or email me. I will not answer the phone.” Huh.
Find it on Northern Michigan Craigslist.
“Here is a rare opportunity to own an affordable classic 1972 Austin Mini Clubman. This is a very restorable “drive it home” classic with the very desirable Rod Change Upgrade to the transmission provided by Mini Mania, www.minimania.com, and professionally installed here in Michigan. The engine was overhauled with a crankshaft grind, rod and main bearings, timing chain and gears, piston rings, oil pump, and water pump.The transmission was provided by Mini Mania as a remanufactured unit. Both master cylinder and clutch master have been replaced along with front brake flex hoses and a pair of wheel cylinders. Drive it this summer, restore it this winter. It is a really good candidate to restore. There are some minor electrical issues (turn signals, fuel gauge) and the speedometer needs to be connected to the new transmission. The body is very good with some fiberglass floor repairs and other minor work. There are heater controls, but no heater. This is priced for quick sale. Fully restored they go for over $12K. Text me or e mail me. I will not answer the phone.”
