Too bad I wasn't closer to you. Been looking for a bonnet, amongst some other parts for my wall hanger piece that I'm working on. Not been the easiest thing to find. Been searching for months. But I live in BC. Good luck on the sale.

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!

Both will be up for sale....just looking at recouping the cost and gas etc.

Turns out the yellow one is 79.
Probably dryer here than NB for sure.....although looks like these two saw some salt.

Good find. Looks salvageable for parts or rebuild. Getting harder to find them at all in any condition. Especially in Canada.

I should be so lucky !  Austin MINI's around these parts don't last nearly as long.  Even cars I looked at 20yrs ago were nothing more than a pile of rubble and dust.

It must be a lot drier in SK than NB, I'm thinkin'
