Who doesn’t know the Alec Issigonis designed motoring icon? Since the introduction of the Mini in 1959, this amazing little car has become a motoring classic and its impact socially, culturally and mechanically is well documented. The Swinging Sixties, free love, The Beatles, Twiggy and the Mini are inexorably combined to represent an era that is remembered with great fondness by many people.
This very well presented example is presented in a striking colour combination and is showing circa 36,000 miles on the odometer which is believed to be genuine. The paintwork presents very well indeed although there are some light blemishes as you would expect for a car of this age. The interior is also in very good condition and is commensurate of its age. Recently this Mini has been treated to an extensive service including four new Yokohama tyres. Having lived in Northern Ireland for some time this Mini comes complete with sundry bills, and the original book pack with the service book showing 10 stamps. Many invoices are also present proving its excellent maintenance record throughout its lifetime along with one key and remote. This lovely low mileage example looks superb and the vendor reports that it runs and drives as it should. Ready to be enjoyed in the coming summer months.
