hi there from South Africa. I am in the know of a a40 farina just standing on a farm. A barn find of sorts . And i know that there are not plenty of the a40 farina around SA as iv only every seen like 3 . Im not sure if its the mk1 or face lift model. It was a old mans car that has past on so the wife wants to sell it to me. I think she said around 224 British pounds is what the rand value eqates too. The old man never started it in about 20 years i take it but he said the motor was overalled head work done etc. He said the car was standing because of a busted diff. Now im 31 years old and im not that knowledgeable . I had 2minis for about a year 1 driving but needed work and floor rusted etc and 1 just a body no papers that have just been resprayed etc . I sold them and no looking back i regret that but both never had proper paperwork. I love cars. The a40 farina looks to be sold but might have rust in the usual places. Its gone need a diff and engine check . So what do you guys think is the price worth it? also i dont think there is paperwork and it sure cant be on the sytem. also with there being so little of these cars around i dought ill find a diff and might be looking for an alternative. :ugeek:

Always difficult to value any car without seeing it but the price you mention is so cheap that it is worth taking a chance on.

If you choose to join our club, you will access to our extensive range of spares including bodywork repair panels.

Agreed............that's cheap. It would have had a 4.2 or 4.5 diff. Neither are difficult to locate, especially the 4.2.
To distinguish between Mk1s & Mk2s........the Mk2 grille finished "under" the headlights. Mk1s had a grey coloured dashboard. Early Mk2 dashboards were black, later Mk2s were painted to look like wood. A Countryman has an upwards opening back window. Also, the rear side windows don't open on a basic model of either Mks.

hi rourke, yes its worth a punt on it for that price, the diff.....you can use the diffs from an a30/35, morris minor, mg midget or a40, the only thing is you cant use the half shafts as they are different sizes you can only use shaft from an a40farina, i bet its one of the shafts thats gone and not the diff as the diffs are a hardy bit of kit, best of luck with your purchase. ;)
