From a modest collection of Minis comes this original specification example finished in red with Union Jack roof, sports alloy wheels and wheel arch extensions, plus a full set of fog and spot lamps. The smart interior features half leather seats, wood veneer dashboard and sports steering wheel.

The current owner has had the car for some four years and in that time has replaced the sill panels and fitted a new rear subframe, carefully repainting as necessary in the correct colours. A Maniflow sports exhaust has been fitted and Spax adjustable shock absorbers. Mechanically all appears good. The 1275cc fuel injected engine starts easily and runs sweetly, delivering power through a standard four speed gearbox.  A new battery and alternator have been fitted and new brake pads to the front.

The motor car will be driven some sixty miles to the auction sale and a new MoT test certificate will be obtained, expiring in February 2021. A V5c registration certificate is present.

This is a great opportunity to acquire one of the last pre BMW Minis, which has been carefully nurtured and kept as original as possible.

Auction Date: 19 March 2020
