We are very pleased to offer a super slice of seventies Austin Mini and finished in one of the best period colours ever created, Teal blue. This Mini has just undergone a two year restoration and has an enviable list of new parts and had countless hours lavished on it and is presented in fantastic condition ready to be used and enjoyed. This is a correct MK3 Mini and had been in the same family for over 20 years and is accompanied with a service history folder and a list of parts used during its restoration totalling over £3k in parts alone. There is also a file with over 50 pics detailing the work.
To summarise this little gem has just benefitted form a complete new floor, vented sills, boot floor, rear seat base, rear wheel arches, door skins, A panels, inner wings, flitches, wings, front panel, hinge panels and companion bins. All of these panels were genuine Heriatge. It also received new upgraded Headlamps, all new rubbers, chrome and indicators. Im a big fan of this era of Mini as they offer the pure Mini driving experience whilst still being very useable. The 998 engine fires instantly and holds strong oil pressure and is mated to a smooth gearbox. Performance is brisk and owing to all of the new running gear it handles and stops very well. It has upgraded 8.4 inch disc brakes, Gaz shocks, Adjustable Hi-Lo suspension and a new steering rack amongst other things. The engine has also been refreshed and has all new seals, hoses and all service items replaced and has been fully tuned and timed. This is a very nice example to drive and it certainly gets lots of attention out on the open road.
As you can see from the pics the interior has also been fully replaced and benefits from retrimmed seats, a new head liner in black and new carpets. It retains its original Steering wheel and three clock binnacle and is a very nice place to be.
This Mini is the same colour underneath as it is on top and has powder coated subframes, a detailed engine bay and gleaming paintwork. Its finished to a high standard and could easily be shown or just driven and enjoyed and be the envy of your freinds.
This Mini has a full MOT and is fully serviced, checked and tuned and ready to go. It is also tax and MOT exempt.
Examples like this one are very rare and the new owner will certainly benefit from all the hard work and love that has gone into this little gem.
