There was a guy in Italy that pretty much had a lock on any and all of these cars that were even around... anywhere.

My friend Edo got me in touch with the guy, which was tough enough, and I managed to actually buy a spare clear spare body he had, which was even tougher.
I had aquirred a Mini-A roller that was like new.
Jairus Watson did the paint, assembly, and details.
These are so rare that you hardly ever see them come up for sale.
 
Best offer by midnight Eastern time, Tuesday, October 24, 2017. Note that this car is being sold “AS-IS.”

 

You can post your offer in this thread, or if you wish to remain anonymous, send your offer (stating clearly which car) either in a PM to Cheater here at Slotblog or email him at greg@slotblog.net, and he will post it for you without identification.

 

Please note this NEW REQUIREMENT: So anonymous bids can be posted to the threads before the auction ends, anonymous bids must be sent ONE HALF HOUR before the ending time listed for the car. For example, if the bidding closes at 11 PM Eastern for posted bids, anonymous bids must be received by 10:30 PM Eastern, whether sent via email or PM.

 

Buyer to pay shipping costs. Shipping in most cases will be via USPS “First-Class Package Service,” at least within the US. International shipping will be by method of winning bidder's choice at his expense. A small amount will be added for the cost of packaging materials. If insurance is desired (above any amount automatically included) the additional cost will be at the buyer’s expense. It is not expensive to add insurance to First-Class Package Service (for example, $200 of insurance costs just an additional $3.35).

If I remember right... the chassis was NOS in a bag, Scott.
The body new as you said.
But the wheels tires, guide, and motor came from a cut-up, beat-up original.
I laid out the paint from something Edo posted a year earlier.
So the guide has the Mini logo on it, the wheels are correct for this car with the rears reshod with fresh rubber in '09.

Jairus,

You're saying the car was put together from spare parts that were leftovers from different but original RTRs?

I was always told that the the roller was totally original so that's all I can say.
(Except for the rear tires (to be expected).

Was I misinformed?

Sorry Tom, but I seem to remember you sending me a mint chassis and a roller that was in bad shape.

Mostly because... I had left over chassis parts which I held for years in a box before a gave them to a friend.

Does this ring a bell?

Or this:

You see, the roller you sent had the body mounts cut off for some reason. So, you sent a bagged NOS chassis.

What is in this auction is as clean and original as is possible, my friend ,and should sell very well. We cut no corners with this one.

Jairus,
I don't remember any of the stuff in the pictures at all
All I can recall is sending you a complete roller and the clear body to paint and mount for me
I think you've got me mixed up with another project
However as I have said before, my memory isn't that great anymore and I may be wrong

Well... maybe that was Edo.

Regardless, the car is a nice example of a very rare Mini Car.
