That would have been a decent amount for it. Probably would have been the highest paid-for car on BAT. But, if it didn't sell for that, it belongs at a higher class auction. More than likely see it at a RM auction next.

Simple recipe for Excitement:  Take 1 Classic Mini. Throw in 1590cc's of engine. Add 5 gears. A dash of 94 octane. A sprinkle of style inside and out. Toss in 1 MadMan and finally heat tires and pavement to taste. Recipe produces 1 Mini VTEC conversion and full satisfaction. Motor on!

The auction for the 1957 507 ended without meeting the reserve, but the final bid was fitting: $1,957,507 ??

Yeah, pretty wild. Don't see those too often. Knew that was going to go places in the bidding. 4 days left. I would suspect it'll go even higher. Almost surprised something of this magnitude made it on BAT. Would have thought it would be at RMSotherbys or some other high end auction houses. Elvis had one and it went way up there. Can't recall how much. But there wasn't many of those made.

Congrats on the sale! Anybody else here following the BMW 507 that is up for sale there? Last I checked it was bid up to over 1.5 mil.

Congrats. Sold for $28K. You got what you were looking for or close enough to it to sell. New owner should be happy too. Nice ride.

Thank you both!

Working with BaT has been interesting. I have seen other cars do well on the site, I hope my own car carries the same momentum through the end of the auction.  Crossing my fingers. I'm just hoping to break even.

Only 4 bids and at $20K. Didn't take long. Classic clean original Minis seem to be doing alright on BAT. Good luck to you. Hope it meets your expectation

Hello Gang,

It is with a heavy heart that I share that my Mini is for sale on BaT. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1960-austin-7/

It's the standard 7 day auction. At the end she will be moving on to a new home. I just don't have the time or space for this car any longer. 

Wish me luck and thank you all for the advice over the past 2 years.
