1978 Austin Mini 1000cc. Finished in stunning Inca yellow. Only 41k from new.


We are very pleased to offer a super slice of seventies Mini. I am a huge fan of this era of Mini as thy offer the pure Mini diving experience yet being very useable on a day to day basis. They have the all important ten inch wheel and the centre clock binnacle and are just so engaging to drive and now in standard from they getting very rare indeed and sough after.

Our example is beautifuly finished in Inca yellow and has just been fitted with a brand new set of D1 alloys with four new tyres. The original steel wheels are available. We have also fitted a chrome wide slat frille, the original matte black grille is available with the Mini. Its accompanied with a large history folder including MOT certificates and its original passport to service book and handbook and wallet.

On the road this Mini is a joy to drive, it goes go by the name of Colonel mustard and it feels nice and taught. The ride on the ten inch wheels is fantastic and really gives you a seventies timewarp experience. The engine is very responsive as you would imagine form such a low mileage example and the gearbox is also sweet. I have covered a long distance in this Mini, we bonded and it served me well.

The interior is also very well preserved and it still has its original stripey seats and very good roof lining a testament to an easy life. The all important three clock centre binnacle is present as is the original steering wheel, that really is all you need to get out on the open road and enjoy this little gem.

This Mini also has a very solid shell with the correct vented sills, original wings and front panel and yellow floor pans. the paintwork is in very good condition and this Mini could sit anywhere and attract attention as it just gleams. It has been very looked after all its life and will give its new owner many happy miles. It is fully serviced and has a long MOT and is indeed MOT exempt from next year and is ready to go on a new Mini adventure.
