There is no accounting for taste.

Probably a rhetorical question, but judging by the wipers not parked, the incomplete and mis-matched interior and the lack of cleanup for the photos, I'm guessing it hasn't seen any work and is probably a dog's breakfast. The exterior body modifications appear decently done (no accounting for taste) but who knows how the mods were attached. Sign me "Dubious".

That is screaming for someone, other than me, to put a small block Chevy in it! And then run it over a cliff.

If one could really realize a huge return on this with minimal investment, why doesn't the seller do it? That tells a buyer all they need to know.

not really sure what "making the value exponential" means, but I am sure the exponent is negative.

Maybe it a rare and valuable pre-production BINI. 
NAH!
Somebody needs to buy it and put it out of its misery.

Those Miata tail lights look great on a Miata, horrible on a Mini.

That is fugly and scary.  Thankfully there are currently no bids.  Sadly, if it sells, the new owner may come here for help.  To each his/her own.

"Green mini runs and is fully operational. Updated the carburetor, cleaned all fuel lines and tank. 
Car needs some attention to the interior body/paint. Minimal investment could yield HUGE return on fix and flip $7-8k profit. These cars are extremely hard to come by in the states making the value exponential. Title in hand. MAKE ME AN OFFER!! All paperwork in hand and clean title. Will need to be picked up or shipped."

Fugly doesn't even come close - it's an utter POS.

Deluded seller...
