The ad says no paperwork and needs a full rebuild I think they may be disappointed there's no way it's worth even half that.

I think I've seen this car on ebay a few times over the last couple of years.  It was possibly also the subject of discussion on the forum.  Big money indeed.
...a few minutes elapse...then...
I found the post on the forum.  This car was on ebay almost two years ago.
I still like it ;D

After a quick check on DVLA, it's registered as a 1275 Austin in red, first registered in 1969 (so no tax to pay). So getting a log book shouldn't be an issue.
It hasn't been road taxed since 1989, so 25 years off the road.

That does mean it's not correctly registered so you either "wing" it or have a fight with dvla.

Anyone know how all the Mini Minus owners got on with the DVLA, I heard that last year they were all contacted about registration issues ?

Registered as a 1275 Austin it could well end up needing an IVA Test.

The DVLA might be willing to update the details. We have got pictures of the car on the road with that registration mark as Neil posted above. They can refer to the club if necessary. Roger Garland is the best person to advise on registration matters.
