Is £1400 a good price for a 2003 MINI One?

I am thinking of purchasing a 2003 MINI One - it is a petrol and has 107,000 miles. The owner is asking £1395. Do you first think this is a good price and would you advise buying such an old and used car?

They can last. I know of a (rusty) 2003 MINI Cooper that has done 170,000 miles the last 50,000 of which have been fairly reliable. The price isn't crazy, but you are paying about £500 for the 'look'.
