1978 Austin Mini Clubman Estate 45k miles SOLD

Sold new on the 1st August 1978 by Spikins of Twickenham and finished in Snapdragon yellow, Absolute Classic Cars are delighted to offer this fantastically presented Austin Mini Clubman Estate. Having been fastidiously owned by only 3 previous keepers, the current owner acquired the Clubman Estate from renowned Mini specialist & dealers 'Wood & Pickett' in 2009 and has since lavished umpteen £0000's in maintaining and preparing the car to what is one of the most bespoke Clubmans you're every likely to see. With a history folder containing some 37 previous MOTs its wonderfully easy to imagine the journeys this delightful car has been on and there is no doubt she has been well cared for over the last 42 years as her file highlights some of the following well documented works and subsequent maintenance records, with this including:

1978 - 1996 no fewer than 17 service stamps up to 33,409 miles with the original 'Supercover Handbook Portfolio'
Ongoing maintenance records through to 2009.
Sold 2009 by Wood & Pickett
Genuine Minilite alloy wheels
Bodywork restoration in 2017
Custom built Bill Richards Racing 1380cc engine (renowned 'A' series engine specialist)
Twin Carburetor conversion
Bill Richards Gearbox
Rebuilt front suspension
Upgrade brakes inc servo
Stainless exhaust system
Full interior retrim - HEATED LEATHER!
Front and rear seat-belts
Sony Radio / CD

Mechanically in excellent order and having traveled less than 1000 miles since her custom built engine conversion, it's a real joy to drive this Clubman. With a small amount of 'choke' needed on start-up, the 1380cc engine bursts into life with a throbbing beat coming from the stainless exhaust system. She pulls sweetly through all gears and with circa 100bhp, this Clubman Estate is capable of having a real turn of speed should you wish to, or can be enjoyed as a docile classic under normal driving.

Her Snapdragon Yellow bodywork is in great condition, the chrome and paint having a wonderful lustrous shine and we love the golden decals running down the side and on the rear doors. On opening the doors / tail-gate, the driver and passengers are met with an interior in first class order, over £2500 has been spent upgrading the seats from the original cloth to now the full leather, heated and reclining seats in the car and despite being diminutive in stature the Clubman Estate really is a comfortable car to drive and actually offers a good amount of interior space with a bright and airy feel.

By far one of the nicest Minis we've ever seen, and a Clubman Estate to boot (pardon the pun), the car comes with a fantastic history file containing a bills for nearly £20k, 37 previous MOT's dating back to her first in 1982 (circa 21k miles), her original Drivers Handbook / Passport to Service and a recent independent value at more than double the asking price, this Austin Mini Clubman Estate is one like no other and ready to be loved and enjoyed by her new owners.
