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 1960s and its space-saving front-wheel drive layout allowing 80% of the car's floorpan 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.
Registered new on 30th September 2000, this wonderfully presented, one lady owner from new example is offered in red coachwork over a grey interior and is in very good condition throughout. The paintwork is bright and retains a deep shine and the interior is virtually unmarked. The Mini has covered a mere 18,150 miles and comes with a history file including various service records, old MoT test certificates, the UK V5 registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 30th August 2022. Original Mini's have seen a recent resurgence in demand resulting in an inevitable increase in price and this one looks to be very good value given its excellent history.
