The car was stripped down and repainted this winter in a beautiful viper red color with white top by a custom shop near me. The frontend in a one-off fiberglass unit that allows the use of the Honda VTEC with ease. The hood opens with 2 simple pins and the entire frontend can be removed in 30 minutes if you wish. The windshield and rear window were replaced with fresh glass from England as well

This is car is not perfect by darn near close it drives perfect due to the modern engine and upgraded suspension. This car has none of the bouncy effect that Mini’s are known for. The power to weight ratio of this car is incredible so I don’t suggest this for new drivers. It’s a hoot to drive but powerful too.

The car is for sale locally as well so I reserve the right to end the auction if sold, so buy it now if you like it.
Ebay is not accepting the vin for some silly reason. The vin issaxxl2s1020254464 and printed on a clear title the car is a 1985 not 1980
