This is a wonderful car available now for just $17,495. This is a below market price. Check it out! We are selling it for our friend Scott, who bought the car from us and has sold his house and needs the space. The car is in Rhode Island. If you are looking for an inexpensive way to have a whole lot of British car fun, check out this timeless classic and call!

I’ve owned this car several times. Scott has had it for the past 5 years and drove it very little (has has about 12 other classics).

The car was fully restored with a custom engine turned dashboard that looks stunning. New tonneau, great radial tires, and just a blast to drive. Not a rickety-bias-ply ride, but instead a real sportscar that rides on smooth radials. Great handling, great ride and great fun! Super clean-especially in the engine bay. Also has a spin on oil filter conversion to simplify service.

The car shines nicely and looks stunning. There is no rust and there are no dings. The engine runs great and was completely rebuilt less than five thousand miles ago. Call with questions or for more information.

This is a vintage roadster that is tons of fun, with a whole lot of style and grace for not a lot of money.

Classic Mini! 1961 Classic Austin Mini Estate Countryman (Woody) For Sale

Price Reduced! Now $14,995! That’s a lot of fun for not a lot of money!

A ’64 Mini Cooper was the car I owned just before I bought my first Bugeye way back in the 70s, so I have a particular affection for early cars like like the Mini you see here. This one is a head-turner, and a joy to drive.

In September of last year, we performed a major service to this car and made it into a wonderful driver. We replaced shocks, ball joints, wheel cylinders, drums and shoes and a host of smaller issues, all with the eye to make the car easy to use and ready to go for the former owner, who used the car sporadically and recently decided to simply sell it to us.

The car is fit with a 998 cc engine with a four synchro later gearbox. The engine and gearbox are presumed to be from a later classic Mini. The car runs great and shifts smoothly.

Drum brakes are fit all around and they work wonderfully, the car stops straight and true. Nice 165/70×10 Yokahama tires are fit to ten inch minilights for a great performance ride.


You can now jump in this car and drive anywhere. It starts up easily, runs well and the brakes work great!

If you like these woody wagons, this one will provide exceptional summer fun! Call if you would like to take this one home!

This one is registered as a 1961 Mini and it has early door hinges, latches and windows, but a more modern interior and dashboard, complete with comfortable headrest equipped seats and a nice wooden dashboard. The car drives great and would be the ultimate beach cruiser with your surfboard on top!

PS: What is the difference between a Traveller and a Countryman?

Answer: Very simply a Morris Mini estate is a Traveller and an Austin Mini estate is a Countryman. Some people wrongly think that one model had the wood and the other didn’t, but both the Morris Mini Traveller and the Austin Mini Countryman were available both as a Woody and as an all steel version.

PPS: Ever driven a RHD English car? It’s a hoot! My wife regularly drives our RHD Morris Traveler, no problem! If you are unfamiliar you’ll find it takes about 5 minutes to get used to it, and the rest is pure fun. RHD amplifies the attention one gets with a classic car. Totally legal and easy to register anywhere in USA (or elsewhere, we’ll help).

We sold this sweet 356 to Phil in Florida early in 2016. Now he’s ready to trade for something new, and has asked us to list the car here. The car is currently located in Florida, where Phil has made it even better with cosmetic and mechanical improvements. If you are interested, please contact us for pricing and more information at 203-561-6929.

Here’s a wonderful Porsche full of Bugeye personality. This very well-restored 1963 Porsche 356B is elegant and sophisticated, a stylish gentleman compared to a rugged and toss-able nimble Sprite. These sold for about $4,200 when new compared to the Bugeye’s $1,795 new price, so of course, everything is quite different. The interior is more luxurious, the car is quieter and simply more elegant while retaining great sports car fun, racing heritage and service simplicity. The 356 is full of personality and lovable curves, just like a Bugeye and that’s why I like it so much. And the car is tons of fun to drive and admire. Everyone needs one of each.

This is no simple go fast ‘hot rod’, it is a well-engineered marvel that Morgan would be building today if they were free of government regulations, internal politics and market- driven cost constraints. Only the finest purveyors of Morgan-specific, engineered equipment were utilized in the design and build of this stunning vehicle.

Many removed original bits were neatly palletized and included with the sale of the car. Additional comprehensive build pictures are available. A comprehensive video is also available for this car, just ask if you would like to see it.

The car was built for fair weather motoring, but the original windshield, sidecurtains and top can be fit to the car for use in varied climates.

$200k was spent to build this ultimate Morgan. It can be yours for $125k.

We have added a great driving video, as well as comprehensive build information (top right portion of the linked page), which you can see by clicking here! If you like this car, you will love checking out the car’s very own website!
