Description

- It has always been Italian, first registered in Varese in 1982, and then re-registered with Milan MI number plates by the second owner, before being included in the current collection; 3 owners. In its original condition, unlike many Minis, it has not undergone changes over the years that have altered the technical and aesthetic characteristics. MOT no longer valid, but ready to use.
- Rare “Primula yellow” colour with original leatherette interior with pied the poule fabric inserts the Mini 1.0E is well preserved, as is the bodywork. Equipped with canvas sunroof, an accessory of the time, and the characteristic reinforced bumpers, typical of the Mini.
- Mechanically in good working order, equipped with the brilliant 998cc A series engine and longer gear ratios that make the car agile and quick. Derived directly from the third Mini series, it still had the characteristic, tiny 10-inch wheels, which were abandoned in later series in favour of the more common 12- and 13-inch rims.
- This was the entry level version of the 1982 Mini range and still has many details derived from the first Minis of the 1960s, such as the unique central control instrument panel, and its iconic leather and fabric upholstery. This model is fitted with a canvas sunroof and bull bars to reinforce the bumpers, accessories that increase its practicality of use. Rare equipment, rare colour, rare model, as complete and unmodified Austin Rover Minis of the 1980s are hard to come by in this condition.
