I have owned this car since April 2009 and purchased it as a restoration project for my retirement.
For over 30 years I ran my own car coachwork and bodywork business before retiring, and this car was my own personal retirement project.
I carried out the restoration from 2012 and put back on road with an MOT in October 2015.
I have a folder full of paperwork and receipts for everything I’ve purchased and carried out on the car.
Since 2012 the work has included, but not limited to:
• New wings, front panel, inner and outer sills
• Subframe reconditioned
• Suspension renewed – Dry Suspension
• Brakes renewed – new linings and cylinders
• New exhaust
• Electronic ignition
• All new clutch / brake master cylinders
• New tyres
• Wheel arches and floor sealed and stonechip protection in black
• Resprayed in cellulose paint in original colour Tartan Red with the addition of a black roof.
• New Inertia seatbelts fitted to front
• New windscreen rubbers front and back
• New sealed beam headlamps
• All new chrome work
• Stainless steel bumpers
• Moto-Lita Steering Wheel
• The engine is a 1000cc A+ engine with a 1300 head. It has had a new water pump, timing chain, engine mountings and stabilisers.
I believe this engine was fitted into the car by the 3rd owner in approx 2006.
The true mileage of this engine is unknown, although the mileage of the car checks out from the history I have.
The History and MOT’s.
This car has only had 4 previous owners before me.
The first owner (Mrs Brown from Romford Essex) purchased it new 1 June 1963 and owned it for 30 years until 23 May 1993 after covering 82,485 miles.
I have the original bill of sale, the handbook and every piece of paperwork and service history for the vehicle for that 30 years.
It is an amazingly comprehensive history and she even consistently used the same garage for servicing during the whole of that time (Nelmes Garage in Romford)
I have some paperwork, MOTs and receipts for the following owners too that help show it’s mileage and history. It was SORN off the road from October 2003 – November 2006.
I purchased it in 2009 and carried out a restoration from 2012 onwards putting it back on the road in October 2015 (have a folder full of all my receipts)
Car is currently displaying 6,804 (April 2019)
This is a great opportunity to own an original Mini that has been thoughtfully restored and is ready to use and enjoy. It also boasts a very comprehensive history. Excellent clean and tidy condition throughout and kept garaged.
I have put together a pdf document of more comprehensive photographs and close up detail, so if you are interested please get in touch and I can email this over.
