Is it possible to look at my album and get any idea of what year this mini is, engine size, any info would be good. No nothing about car, just think i might have a good deal?

Late model with airbag, and front mounted radiator. Lots of plastic under the hood, I am guessing fuel injected 1275cc. Are the backup lights in with the tailights? I would guess it is a 1997 or somewhere close to that. PM THMMC member dj in Scotland he could tell the year better than me.

Unless someone has done an AWEFULL lot of work in transplanting later running gear into an old mini as above i would say 1996 onwards to end of run
Certainly has old style VIN plate on front panel but thats about it
From 1980 onwards the mini VIN number was also stamped in the gutter on the front scuttle (channel running along the back of the bonnet (hood) in front of the windscreen ) it is generaly on the right hand side right in front of the driving possition (our driving side lol)
Unfortunately front scuttle replacement is quite common due to rust but there are a number of big differencas in the later shells ,check the scuttle for a VIN stamp and feel free to come back if that doesnt help but it certainly looks like someone is trying to sell a later mini

I had done a lot of looking ove the net and thought it might be somewhere around 1996-1999. Seller says it has 1973 title and i have not personaly put my eyes on it. Looks good in the pictures.
Any idea what it might be worth in better then good condition?
Thanks for all the help.
Hope one day to ride withthe club.
