Hi, we are Classic Mini specialists Paul Higgs Cars based in New Milton in Hampshire. We specialise in all things Classic Mini and always have a large selection available at sensible prices. We pride ourselves on offering a friendly environment with objective advice with the occasional cup of tea! We have many years of experience with these amazing cars and we try and match the customer with there perfect Classic Mini. All of our Classic Minis are carefully selected and prepared with a service and MOT and thoroughly checked prior to you starting your Classic Mini adventure.

We are very pleased to offer a unique opportunity to not only own a super rare Mini Clubman Automatic but perhaps one of the lowest mileage examples in existence, it has covered only 8635 miles from new with only two previous owners. Finished in the very period Harvest gold with contrasting brown vinyl trim this Bournemouth registered Clubman has never left the area. Registered in 1975, its first lady owner had it until 1986 with just 5107 recorded miles and the second lady owner who was known to the first one used it up until 1989, a January MOT certificate from that year records a mileage of 7403. It was then dry stored until this year, it still has its Jan 89 tax disc in the window. There are other service receipts from that era supporting the very low mileage. This is a matching numbers example with only two previous owners which has been fully recommissioned with many new parts and is now ready to be used and enjoyed. This Mini is unique in the respect that many Minis with super low miles are trailer queens that just go to shows, this Clubman can be used as such a car but in my opinion it needs pressing into action and being enjoyed out on the open road.

On the road it has a real time warp feel to it, the interior is untouched and the almost silent 998 engine is very smooth, the Automatic gearbox performs very well and it quickly gets going. It also has four new tyres and overhauled brakes so it handles and stops well. Seventies Minis are my favourite of all the eras of Mini as they offer the pure Mini driving experience with the large steering wheel and ten inch wheels and by this point they had usefully evolved into very easy to drive cars and this one is no exception. It is very happy on the twisty stuff and holds its own on faster roads. Automatic Minis are an excellent experience, I have owned many, they offer the true Go-Kart experience, simply select drive and off you go with a big smile.

The interior is as it left the factory with unmarked original seats and roof lining. We have left the original carpet in place as its almost a shame to change it and it still very presentable and in keeping with its age and character.

This Clubman has a fantastic original shell with remarkable floor pans and and boot floor. It has its original sills and I cant see any evidence of welding repairs, it really is a true survivor, it was Ziebart was injected from new which has helped with the preservation process. The paintwork is well presented and again in keeping with its age and patina, it looks now as it probably did when it was ten years old not the 46 years it currently is. This is an unrestored example so expect the odd age related mark and blemish. What this Mini is looking for is a new owner who will appreciate it for what it is, which is virtually unique, it wears its heart on its sleeve and it is certainly ready for a new Mini adventure.

The Mini is fully serviced and and has a full MOT. It is now MOT and Tax exempt.
