In September 1960, a few months after the launch of the revolutionary Mini, Austin and Morris introduced an estate version whose wheelbase was slightly extended and the car had some detail improvement for standard equipment. With an undisguised desire to address a clientele of gentlemen farmers, the body proudly featured wood inserts that elegantly dressed the rear to give an impression of a "woodie."
The car on offer underwent a major restoration in 2011, with the bare body exposed and the replacement of the floors, the sills and the wooden sections at the rear. The car received a new coat of paint and all the chrome and accessories were either new or redone. The interior (upholstery, carpets) was also completely redone. The mechanicals were restored: engine, gearbox, running gear, electricity, brakes… After the overhaul, it was used in the shooting of the film "La Ritournelle". This green Mini 850 with a light green interior and a four-speed gearbox is equipped with an accessory flywheel and Dunlop alloy wheels. A great British classic, the car's playfulness and practicality are particularly well highlighted thanks to the quality of restoration the car has benefited from.
Auction estimate: €20 000 / 30 000 - Without reserve price
