The Mini was manufactured by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) and its successors from 1959 until 2000. The original Mini is considered a British icon of the 1960’s 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.

This Mini Cooper was originally registered on 20th March 1997 and is finished in metallic blue with a white roof. The interior also matches the exterior colour being trim in blue with cream. We are advised this example runs and drives but she will need some recommissioning. Supplied with a V5C registration document, the previous MoT expired on 5th January 2022, the car has covered a mere 169 miles since. It is unlikely to be MoT’d prior to auction just through lack of time unfortunately. Offered for sale without reserve, this is an ideal entry into classic car motoring at a relatively modest outlay.
