1994 Mini Sprite

Post by davem » Tue Nov 21, 2017 8:31 am

I'm selling my Mini. It started out as a rotten and rusted Red Sprite pulled from a hedge in friends garden and after a few years of fixing up it got to the pics in the ad below. I will get interior pics and underbody pics this weekend if it's dry out.

I have no idea what it's worth or how to price it. I'm starting it at €7,500 on DD but will discount for a sale on here, please let me know if this price is miles off.

Looking at your description of parts and work done and photos in the ad I would think the price is ok.
Most important thing to achieve that price would be photos of the build and prep work before painting.
In the UK at the moment that price would be good but weather the Irish market is back up there you'll have to wait and see.
