With a multitude of uses, these sporty small estates were very popular in their time; many fell foul to the dreaded tin worm and others to the ‘big bore’ exhaust brigade. Those that escaped remain a rare sight on Britain’s roads.

This smart and solid example has obviously been well-cared for and benefits from a number of sensible upgrades: the cloth seats have been replaced with leather Recaro seat, an external custom made steel sun visor is fitted and the road wheels are now Minilite type alloys. We understand that the Mini is in good condition throughout and has had a recent service; the last MOT test was clear with no advisories.

The history file includes invoices, sundry papers and the aforementioned MOT test certificate. Next year, apparently the Clubman will qualify for MOT test and road tax exemption.
