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 1960's and its space-saving front-wheel drive layout allowing 80% of the car's floor plan 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. Initially Minis were marketed under the Austin and Morris names until Mini became a marque in its own right in 1969. The Mini was again marketed under the Austin name in the 1980's and was offered in a number of limited editions that usually included a special combination of trim and badging.
This Limited Edition Mini is a two owner vehicle and has only covered 18,935 miles from new. Finished in green with black interior, this Mini started on the button when requested and we are advised it drives with no known faults. Badged 'The Italian Job' it is ready to use and enjoy immediately. With prices increasing dramatically of late for this iconic British car, a low mileage example such as this offers excellent value in today's buoyant market.
K604 DFL is supplied with a V5C registration document and a full year's MoT test certificate, together with the original handbooks and keys.
