Lot 233 - 1988 Austin Maestro 1.3L
|Odometer reading||9,609 miles|
|Result||Sold - £3,472|
The Austin Maestro was produced from 1983 to 1987 by British Leyland and from 1988 until 1995 by Rover Group. The car was produced at the former Morris plant in Cowley, Oxford although today, the redeveloped factory produces the BMW Mini. The Maestro incorporated many novel and pioneering features for its class. It had a bonded laminated windscreen, homofocal headlamps, body-coloured plastic bumpers, an electronic engine management system, adjustable front seat belt upper anchorage positions, an asymmetrically split rear seat and a 12,000-mile service interval.
First registered on 1st November 1988 to Stanley Hodge of St. Ives, Cambridgeshire, this Maestro is a one owner example and has covered a mere 9,609 miles from new. The detailed service history, dating from 1989 through to 2014, was carried out by local motor engineers Purser & Luxford and more recently by Thurlow Nunn of Cambridgeshire. The MoT history confirms the low mileage. Also included in the file are the invoice for the first MoT test certificate and service as well as a current MoT test certificate valid until August 2017. The original book pack and V5 document accompany the car along with two sets of keys. Finished in grey with a grey interior, this charming Maestro is a rare car indeed with such low mileage, ownership history and condition making it highly collectible.
