1976 Mini Classic Mini Additional Info:

This is one of the cleanest engine swaps where form meets function. Fantastic pulling Honda D16 Sohc engine dyno tuned at 165whp! Freshly built motor and trans in early 2018 with 3.7 final drive gearing for great acceleration and highway cruising. Overall very clean body, floors, etc. 1.5 Year build completed at John McGee of M.C.M. out of Annapolis, Md. No expense was spared and less than 1500 miles since completed. This is a rare opportunity to buy a cleanly put together, very well optioned Vtec conversion. There is an immense amount of build photos and video available. I bought earlier this his but just don't have time to drive it. I spend more time in my BMW M2 and my 1991 Rover Mini with AC. We are also renovating a new home so I need to free up some money.
