Description

This is a very rare Mini Mk1 Super De Luxe. This Super De Luxe model was similar to the Cooper version with contrasting roof colour and extended instrument binnacle, but with the standard 850 ccm engine and "Magic Wand" gearbox. Not many Super De Luxe Mini's have survived, and this matching nrs example is restored to concours condition. Finished in the original colour "Island Blue", it looks fabulous and it really drives like a brand new car. The restoration is completely documented, including many pictures of the engine and gearbox rebuild.

With the upcoming "Mini 60 Years" celebrations in 2019, the interest for nice examples of this iconic car is increasing a lot. So if you want to participate in one or several of these events then this is your chance to obtain a dropdead gorgeous Mini Mk1. Finding a better one will be quite difficult, and building one to a similar condition will be much more expensive then our asking price. So quite an easy choice isn't it ... ?
