Description

1963 Austin Mini mk1 Super de Luxe 850 in a beautiful colour combination of Light Blue paint with a white roof and a Blue Grey interior trim.

Matching numbers, on Dutch EU registration and comes with a Heritage Certificate.

This car was produced on the 13th of May 1963 in Smoke Grey with a Blue Grey interior trim. Dispatched on the 25th of May 1963 to its first owner through a dealer in Lisbon, Portugal.

During its life in Portugal the car was completely restored and received its current original Mini colour scheme of Speedwell Blue with a white roof. In 2019 the Mini was imported into the Netherlands and after a full service and a rolling road dyno tuning of the engine, received its current Dutch EU registration.

Comes with some spare parts such as its original Super de Luxe front bumper with guards and hub caps. Now fitted with a battery master switch, a sump guard, driver's side wing mirror and rear mud flaps. A factory floor mounted starter swith is another nice detail of this early mk1 Mini.

The first mk1 series of Austin and Morris Mini's were produced between 1959 and 1967 and can be identified amongst others by the external door hinges.

These Super de Luxe models were fitted with many extra's compared to the base model: bumpers with overriders and corner bars, full size wheel caps, chrome window trim and number plate lamp, opening rear quarter windows, vinyl leathercloth seat covering, oval instrument panel with two auxiliary instruments, padded dashboard rails, passenger sun visor, rear passenger ash trays.
