Ajay 99,

If you know the rate of the car then probably you should have also read that i do not have any interest in dealing of the car (i hope you understand what i meant) it was just an advert on behalf of my friend.

You cannot expect chicken to a cost of a diamond and a diamond for a cost of a chicken

The price factor (sorry mods) is purely at the sellers and buyers discretion

Machdar/Joy (W140 in backdrop) are you guys seeing this? I suppose the guy is from western suburbs goregaon/malad etc mini was pictured here earlier. Worth a look but V170 head lights seem TATA truck lights and front right camber/caster not right. Mini headlight chrome rims look like an amby part I may be wrong but just the way they look. The cars do look intact and worth a look

@ Shriram: That Morris is nice, but where is this workshop? I can see a VW T2 peeping out of this snap.

All said and done. But A Mini is a Mini and is a Mini.

Forget the amby lights ( You are bang on target Nikhil) But its still a Mini.

The Merc is tooooo battered up. Different rims, made up grille and front bumpers. But is still worth all the penny.

Anyone on its prices????

Yes, I had put up pictures long ago when she was a wreck. Restoration was started by our common friend from Bandra/Khar.

The Merc is not really battered. A Bombay car, went to Chennai, and came back to Bombay. About price you may send me a PM
Agree what you say about a Mini! But have no clue about its history and price as yet and will let it be.

Cheers harit

Mini is at 8 lacs claims taxes are paid in Guj but no FC. I am not sure about the paint quality seems OK, but she has been standing in one place for extended periods after paint so I would not rely on that job for too long. A friend picked up a Mini from guj 3 years ago for 89.99K running but yes needs a lot of work but is intact we figured she would cost some 2 lacs at most to bring her to show spec so you figure the rest.

The merc I did not ask and don't follow this model, but I can tell you I saw this car in 1998/99 she was stripped and who ever completed it has not done a great job she could be better restored and needs a fair amount of sorting out in my book. If you see the dirt under the car shows that she may have been standing there for a while as well therefore not used much a point to consider when buying any car.

Reg price of merc, Duetsch I can find out if you like cheers

Airbusdirver good handle you dirve the new ones as well? If I am not mistaken the guy is either speculator/dealer/investor in cars etc so pretty much everything in that compund and the garages is up for grabs. Good to see a healthy volume of cars in the market place what say guys? You had to dig hard and travle out of Mumbai/ someone even posted as ad for a Mini several times a while ago and now I have seen 5 of them on sale.

Joy if you talk to him check when he bought the W140 because a flood damaged car (W140) is like smokers cancer death. She may most probably be a prefacelift 320 or 500 the former being more likely. Even the other cars may have been flood affected but one cannot be choosy and lets face it these cars are far far easier to fix than a W140 but one needs to look at them with a microscope

I am no expert on Minis or cars but from what little knowledge i have 800k for a mini is way too expy.. specially in the condition it is in.
It probably will be worth importing a mini which doesn't need that much work doing to it & even then it will not cost 800k.
Mind you i do not know how much are the import taxes these days.

Anyway that's just my 2 pennies worth..
