Description

"The Mini was manufactured by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) and its successors from 1959 until 2000. The original is considered a British icon of the 1960s and its space-saving front wheel drive layout that allowed 80% of the area of the car's floorpan to be used for passengers and luggage influenced a generation of car makers. In 1999, the Mini was voted the second most influential car of the 20th century behind the Ford Model T. This distinctive two-door car was designed by Sir Alec Issigonis and was manufactured at the Longbridge and Cowley plants. The Mini Mk. I had three major UK updates; the Mk. II, the Clubman and the Mk. III. Within these were a series of variations including an estate car, a pick-up and a van. The Mini Cooper and Cooper 'S' were sportier versions that were successful as rally cars, winning the Monte Carlo Rally four times from 1964 through to 1967. Initially Minis were marketed under the Austin and Morris names, as the Austin Seven and Morris Mini Minor until Mini became a marque in its own right in 1969.
This example was registered new on 8th August 1986 is showing a mere 13,474 on the odometer and presents in good order throughout. Offered with turquoise coachwork over a brown interior, both of which are in very good condition and showing little sign of age. The car is accompanied by a sizeable history file including previous MoT test certificates, sundry invoices, service and maintenance books, previous registration documents and a current MoT test certificate valid until June 2022. Offered to auction without reserve, this is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a well presented Mini Mayfair which is ready to be enjoyed by its new custodian.
