1978 Classic Mini
Customized 1275 cc beauty. Restored nicely. Great upgrades. No rust.

Up for bid by Stekelenburg Classic Cars is this beautifully restored and customized 1978 classic Mini. Stekelenburg Classic Cars established in 1998, located in the Netherlands specializes in European Classic Cars, and stocks many classic Minis and parts.

This restored classic left the factory in 1978 with an 850 cc engine. The initial restoration was done by a Mini enthusiast who used to work at a Dutch classic Mini dealership. He finished his restoration a few years ago, and customized the car to his own wishes. This car has a desirable (all metal) “flip front”, new Mini all leather seats, heated seats, quick release Momo steering wheel and racing seatbelts.

Technical details:
Dutch registration: 85-UN-75
Vin number: XK2S11104160B
The 850 cc engine was replaced by a reconditioned 1275 cc engine with a reconditioned gearbox/manual transmission.
The Mini shifts perfectly (both up and down) in any gear, it has perfect oil pressure, no oil leaks at all, and runs and drives the way a 1978 Mini should. During restoration, many parts were replaced; the master brake cylinder, the clutch cylinder and brake lines have been replaced with new copper lines. It has an alloy radiator and engine was upgraded to feature electronic fuel ignition. The 1275cc engine was fully serviced; needless to say all new oil, filters and spark plugs. If you have any technical questions about this Mini please feel free to ask me.

The car comes with 2 sets of wheels:
10 inch painted Minilite wheels with race tires (see pictures)
12 inch polished wheels with centers painted in a gold color fitted with a set of snow tires (see pictures)

Body has been completely restored to a high standard. Not patch welded. Previous owner has restored with all new front fenders, new sills, new door plates, and a new front. Floors are perfectly solid. The car is painted inside and out in a beautiful bright orange color that shows off Mini’s racing heritage. Very nice paint job! No rust or rust bubbles. The front and rear sub frames are solid and looks very nice. NO RUST AT ALL! If you would like additional bodywork pictures, please feel free to ask.

Interior and exterior:
New black carpet set, new trim panels, piano black dashboard, (please note: the right side glove box door has a deep scratch on the paint) black headliner, new Mini black leather seats, racing seatbelts, quick release Momo steering wheel. The chrome looks nice and is in good condition, new set of fog lights in the front, nice grille and new bumpers. The door handles are pitting a little bit, but still look good.

Terms of sale:
We ship worldwide at your cost and can assist in making shipping arrangements. We can deliver to any sea port in the Netherlands. I have a brother who lives in New Jersey so payment and communication with someone locally in the USA is available. We are open for car dealers / traders and believe in long-term business relationships. This vehicle is being sold “as-is” with no warranty. The above description of the car is to the best of our knowledge. It is an honest description of a beautiful classic that someone will enjoy and treasure for many years to come. If you have any questions please feel free to ask!
As the mini is advertised elsewhere I reserve the right to end the auction at any time.
Stay tuned. Soon to be featured on Ebay; a completely restored all original beautiful 1971 Morris Mini in classic Mini yellow, and a 1963 very original Citroen ID/DS in green.

Happy Bidding,
Lucas Stekelenburg
