i am giving away the old parts dear not new ones and the reason to that is- as i have imported everything i mean everything leaving the body shell and chassis therefore the old parts are of no use to me moreover to clarify on your question further, if i do get more minis i am going to import fresh parts for them too needless to say "everything" in all my restorations most parts are being imported. i also have a Pontiac gto and i have ordered 461 Pontiac butler performance engine for it with butler performance please he is doing a turnkey job on my car...all parts new and 461 is 500bhp fuel injected.
i will update the pictures soon all the cars are under restoration leaving the 450 slc.

Hi maximuzz!!

Have seen this Mini being driven rather enthusiastically quite a lot of times in panchkula. Its always driven by a young turbanator. Thanks for the pictures. Was always looking for clicking it and posting.

It seems the owner is in a habit of breaking the traffic laws. Have seen him driving at illegal speeds and now he's been clicked in the no parking zone.

Hi,

The following pics were sent to me by a friend. Spotted close to MG road in Bangalore sometime ago. Apologize for the picture quality.

Regards,

Srinand.

Original Austin / Morris. Mini from the 60s. As I recall it was the first transverse mounted engine. Even the radiator was on the side. Apparently, electric cooling fan were not perfected and the fan had to run on a pulley off the crankshaft. Our pastor in old Delhi imported a green mini , one of the first to be seen . Compared to the mini, an Amby looked gigantic !

Brand new around Rs 40 lacs on road depending on which city. Fourteen years ago a friend showed me a 1959 Austin Mini which was lying in his garage. The owner was then asking for 1.5 Lacs. Today, even if one were to get one and if that were actually available, Im guessing that it wont leave you much change from 12-15 lacs. Depending on the condition of course. Whichever way it gies, thats going to be a rather expensive rust bucket.
