Austin Mini Van 95L
1981 | miles | In the last 15 years it has only been on the road for approx. 3 years.
Rare, roadworthy and fully restored.
I bought the vehicle 19 Feb 1993. First registered 1 Jul 1981, Reg No. ORB 446W
Petrol 848cc although engine was replaced when gearbox failed in 2003. I still have original engine.
Mileage unknown on replaced engine but runs beautifully. Current odometer shows 997 miles.
MOT until the end of March 2019 Fully prepped and resprayed in 2016 New wiring loom.
New subframe All brake pipes are now copper.
Paget Blue Bodywork. New carpets front and rear.
Original mini seats have been re-upholstered. Original grill chromed.
New roof lining. Carburettor recently overhauled and fully serviced by a specialist.
New 10″ alloy wheels and tyres. Original steering wheel. All receipts for the past 25 years.
As stated above I bought the van in 93 and drove it every day for work until the gearbox failed and I replaced the engine and gearbox. It then became a restoration project as I retired the following year.
In the last 15 years it has only been on the road for approx. 3 years. It runs superbly.
The paint and bodywork are excellent. No rust in any of the usual mini areas as far as I know.The underside is in excellent condition as well and I have photos of this, but they are not available at present.
The rear side panels and wheel arches were replaced and many other trim parts.
This car must be seen to be appreciated.
