A Mini that needs someone else to love…

Parting ways can be very hard, especially for a car like my Mini.  But it’s time.  I need to let go of it and find someone new to give it some loving.  Affectionately kept, it’s a 1977 “R” registration (with British plates) Mini Clubman Estate.  The serial badge says that it was made by Austin-Morris.  It is driven from the proper side of the car, from the right hand side; and has a new muffler, motor mounts, shifter rebuild and paint.  The carpeting is newer, it is highly presentable. The odometer reads 27,000 miles, probably true for the motor, which is a very strong runner.

But it’s time.  And breaking up is so hard to do.

If you know of a good home for a 1977 Mini Clubman Estate – red, with a white roof, suitable for many sports teams including the Calgary Flames and the Calgary Stampeders, though friends have pointed out that a couple slight modifications would also make it suitable for the Montreal Canadiens – an excellent parade car, and a head turner where ever it goes, please contact me:  info (at) babuk.com .  It’s being offered at a highly reasonable price for a quick sale.
