The Austin Maestro was produced from 1982 to 1987 by British Leyland, and from 1988 until 1994 by Rover Group. The car was produced at Morris' former Oxford plant, also known as Cowley. Today, the redeveloped factory produces the BMW Mini.
Supplied new by Henlys’ of Andover on 3rd August 1986 and having five owners since new, this plucky Austin Maestro camper has been predominantly garage-stored and is described by our vendor as remaining exceptionally original throughout. The bodywork is good with superb panel gaps, hinges and door shuts. It is notably Waxoyl protected and with solid inner wings. The measure of a good camper is the interior, a department where this little Countryman excels. The cushions are trimmed in the original material and have been re-padded with a built-in gas stove, this portable studio apartment is ready for camping fun or for display at car shows and events. The history file contains its Austin Rover owner’s wallet complete with owner’s manuals and a stamped service history booklet. It is not often that you see a Countryman Maestro in this order, it is original and, according to our vendor, drives well. It should be noted that the car is sadly missing the hubcaps which are in the photos but must be seen and inspected to appreciate the condition of this little, self-contained living space on wheels.
