Nice MK2 on the Bay

The seller's done a full resto on it but I think he'll be lucky to get 2,500. Will set a new record if he does though.

hi there sort of been a bit of a rubbish member, had very little access to internet and been flat out with work for the last few months sort of lived and breathed work and worked on this in the late evenings. its not turned out to bad i dont think, still more could be done but its at that stage were its nice in my opinion. it was that yellow one that was forsale in feb. i dont think its still rejestered as a mini of the top of my head sure theres a comment on the v5 will have to have a look. probably being optermistic with the price but i think its worth it there great little fun cars, plus already had 2k offered for it by the mot testing guy and hes a bit on the tight side normally so just testing the water really, i think these cars are sooo undervalued for what they are.

ps i would like to apoligise sincerly for not ringing about the doors, just couldnt see a forseable time when i would get chance to fetch a day turned in to week then turn in to a month then... sorry again.

It's back, still with a price tag that manages to seem both reasonable given the state of the car, and at the same time hopelessly optimistic.
Pity he didn't take the opportunity to fit a bigger engine.

It's been up pretty much continuously as a BIN for just under 2.5k since June. I almost emailed him to say take the 2k from his MOT tester as it would be the best offer he'd get. It's a shame in a way that Scamps are so undervalued but it does mean they're a source of cheap fun Very Happy

i will be after another one in the new year when money is a bit more available, think im going to find out what you get if you put a scamp and a 2litre engine together, think it might be nippy Twisted Evil they do it with minis so it must be easier to do it with a scamp.

That's a very good price! Which website did you use?
I believe there's been a few Scamps over the years with 2-litres in them and James (TRR Motorsport) & Reg (Reg's Monster) have 1.9l MI-16 powered Scamps. What engine are you thinking of using?

And then there's Chas' Steve Taylor built Lancia powered Mk3.

I'm going to change my Mi16 this winter for a smaller engine.......... a VAG 1.8 Turbo Twisted Evil

Only worth doing in my opinion if you transfer all the good bits over to the Scamp, eg. suspension, brakes etc..... Wink

From my experience of putting a C14NZ (Yeah i know, crap power...) into a scamp...

DONT

Cut the mini subframe to take the engine & keep the mini suspension. The C14 i've used is smaller than the 1.8 & 2l blocks. The amount if subframe i've had to cut away and reinforce is criminal, resulting in quite a few subframe cracks & splits + weird suspension geometry over the last 2 yrs.

DO

Plan on extending the front end, else you'll have no room for ancilliaries, alternator, air box, inlet manifold etc...try & graft as much of the front suspension as possible or at least fit coilovers into the mini subframe.

Some photo's of my subframe are in the "Project Walle" post in the "Gallery" Click Here Page 2 Top Post

If they're of any help.

Have a god look at the Watsons Rally subframes - wouldn't recommend buying one though as they are overpriced and I think poorly designed and made - but good for pointing you in the right direction.

I have to agree with Reg. Neil's 1.4 Vauxhall lump works nicely in a MK2 but a 150BHP XE on Mini running gear would be a nightmare.

An XE on Nova/Corsa running gear with all the right bits would be a riot though Very Happy

Especially when you junk the useless single plenum/restricted inlet manifold for dialed-in BP285H Cams, a pair of DCOE 45s on 36 chokes, 450 grams off the flywheel and you loose the steel TDC trigger wheel for an alloy trigger wheel front pulley. Mount it to a straight cut F20 box and plate diff and you have a nice little 210-215BHP animal at your disposal Twisted Evil
