Partsfinder Can’t wait to show pics to my dad. He built a Austin Mini tow truck back in the 60’s. Had duals in the back and even had a tow boom. He use to push start 1/4 midgets with it inside a local arena.

alpha867 This isn't the first time I've seen this gorgeous Mini. Given how slowly some of the heavily modified Elise's for sale move, you might get lucky. One rare and special car for another.

1973 Austin Mini Tube chassis street car/ race car Trade for SC Elise

Hi Everyone,

I have a 1973 Tube chassis Austin Mini that I would like to trade for a modded Elise. I wasn't sure if I wanted to let it go but I have always has a soft spot for Elise's and thought this might be the time to get in one.

Here's some information on the car:
This car was built in Canada by a race chassis shop, it spent most of it's life in Tennessee and recently in Massachusetts. It has to be one of the most fun cars I've ever driven; this thing is an event to drive; it's a truly unbelievable driving experience.

You don't get the same feeling driving modern sports car!

- Full tube chassis with built in rollcage
- Full coilover suspension
- Fiberglass body which makes the car unbelievably light
- 2.2L Mazda motor mated to a 5 speed manual transmission
- RWD solid transaxle
- All normal required driving lights (headlights, turn signals, hazards, etc)
- Working heat/ ac
- Working radio
- Removable sparco suede 330 racing wheel
- Brand new sparco 3 point racing harnesses
- Titled as a 1973 Austin Mini with VIN clearly displayed on the dash

Asking $35,000 OBO
Or trade for a boosted Elise, I'd consider any elise that has some assortment of mods. I would love a swapped elise (k24 or similar) but not holding my breath.
