This Mini is certainly one of the quirkiest cars available in our auction. Based on a 1973 Austin Mini 1000, this car is somewhat different than when it was first registered. The chassis has been shortened and the roof removed to produce this striking example. Painted in bright yellow and trimmed in red, this automatic transmission Mini would be at home as a promotional vehicle or just for fun. Potential buyers should note that although we are told this car runs it will require restoration. A replacement V5C registration document has been requested from the DVLA prior to the auction and will arrive in due course.

Interested parties should satisfy themselves as to the description and condition of each lot prior to the sale. Accordingly, buyers are on notice that each vehicle is offered ‘as is/as seen’ subject to the Terms and Conditions for the auction. Buyers are advised to inspect the vehicle in person or use a professional to carry out this service. Historics will not entertain disputes over descriptions.
