I think although i like 998's it would be a stretch as most of America believes there is no substitute for cu in but who knows in the California market especially with a Mini that is already registered there.
If it is sound and rust free as most NZ Minis are i would check the underneath as there is what looks to be a lot of fresh thick in places undercoating present.

I don’t have that info yet.
Classic mini prices have went sky high lately thanks to very few popularizing the car on social media and Bring a trailer bringing in very nice hammer prices. Hard to find a sound rust free mini these days and I think that alone makes this 1972 between $15k to $20k easy. What do you guys think?

Hi Big Al,

Michael was able to help me sell my first mk1 Cooper and that went through smoothly without a problem. All paperwork for the car transport, til the day I got my money. Although it was a different story when it was my turn to buy. He wasn’t able to help me with this car that I wanted in his database but that’s just how business goes. I just want my friend to be taken care of that’s all if he decides to drive up there with cash to buy this 1972 Morris mini white with black roof. I know it’s a nice car and heard many people are interested. It would be very unpleasant if ML is a no show.

Filter out the "reviews" from his competitors and you might get a different viewpoint.

Anyway, you buy the car not the person
Whee, were you one of Michael Lewis’ clients? If so, did you buy a car from him or had him sell a car for you?

Looking for a friend here in San Diego. He’s retired and want to buy a classic mini under $20k

i told him with that budget he could find a good running car without rust. I’ve looked in the classifieds but nothing in there close by that is interesting. He wants a saloon that is already California titled as much as possible. Please message me at my email santarinala@gmail.com or make a reply if you have something for us. Thank you.
