The exterior of this example is painted in an attractive maroon with unique badges and decals; the interior received attractive black seats with red piping, red leather clad steering wheel and red carpet. It is thought that 3,000 of these were made with around 400 currently registered on UK roads. Fitted with the 998cc A series engine but weighing in at under 700kgs, they were renowned for their road holding. This example has recently been restored to a high standard and as a result sits in fantastic condition. Having been off the road from 2006 until 2016, restoration began soon after. The body was professionally restored with any rust rectified, it looks to be straight and the paint shines fantastically along with the chrome work. The clutch assembly, alternator and water pump were all reconditioned or replaced and four brand new tyres were also fitted. With an MOT until September 2023, the car is ready to be used and enjoyed for the 2023 show season and beyond.The sale includes a current V5 document showing six previous owners. It has its original Mini manuals as well as the special Mini Thirty brochure. A folder of history includes paperwork from as far back as when the car was on just 5,000 miles, right up until 2022. Included are a number of old MOT’s that appear to back up the little car’s low mileage.Estimate: £8,000 - £10,000To be auctioned along with a fantastic selection of other vehicles on March 5th at our Showell Farm site, SN15 2NU.
