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 1980s and was offered in a number of limited editions that usually included a special combination of trim and badging.
This lovely Rover Mini Cooper has been in a private collection since 2018, and while in his ownership it has been completely gone through and any faults corrected. According to the MoT history it appears that the car has only covered 1000 miles in the last ten years. Also, from the MoT history it seems that the speedo was changed sometime around 2010/11. Finished in green with a white roof, and black seats piped in red, this Mini Cooper is fitted with a wooden dashboard, rev counter and twin spotlights. The car is supplied with a V5 registration document, an MoT certificate which expires in June 2023, the handbook pack and a file containing old MoT’s and invoices. This is an attractive example ready for a new custodian to enjoy.
