unless it,s freeish i would walk away, you can buy a runner for a lot less than it would cost to put that on the road (imho)

what the plan is to get a kit chassis that i can adapt to fit and put a old mini body over it so front engine rwd with obvious cut and repanelled bulkhead to duit i cant find much on the conversion so making it up as i go along this at 300 seemed like it could possibly be a candidate

Would probably be easier to do one of the rwd rear end mini conversions using a fwd transverse engine or the MGF engine complete with subframe and wishbones, search zcars and Speed3 (now birch motorsport) and the kimini which has plans available to build from scratch if you have welding skills and gear. The midlana (kimini based) or Sylva j15/riot may be able to be adapted but would probably be costly.
