It is strange to think that the Mini was introduced 60 years ago. When Alex Issigonis, who was nicknamed “the Greek god” by his contemporaries, unveiled this model in 1959, who would have imagined the impact that this revolutionary little car would have. With a monocoque shell, a transversely mounted engine and front wheel drive this new car soon became popular across a broad spectrum of the population. In 1999 the Mini was voted the second most influential car of the twentieth century. A large part of the legend of the Mini was created on the rally circuit, with significant wins in the Monte Carlo Rally in the 1960’s.
This completely restored 1967 Morris Mini presents immaculately in blue with a blue and white interior. The two comprehensive files of receipts and paperwork give some idea to the amount of work and time put into making this Mini as striking as she is. The quality of the car is proven by its three time inclusion in articles in Mini World magazine. The vendor describes PGF 213E as one of the finest examples in the market place, and we tend to agree with him. Viewing is advised for this very reasonably estimated Mini.
