1988 Austin Mini City E. 1000cc. Henley Blue. Only 27k & 2 owners from new.


We are very pleased to offer an increasingly rare sight these days, a low mileage factory specification Austin Mini City E. Finished in Henley blue with contrasting Fleck grey seats this example has only covered 27k in 30 years with two previous owners in that time. It is accompanied with its original owners and service books, the original sales receipt from Wadham Stringer in Portsmouth and a large service history folder and every MOT from new.

On the road this Mini lives up to the phrase Time warp. This is the base model City E and it offers the driver the pure Mini driving experience, the closest Minis of this generation got too the original from way back in 1959. It has only one door mirror and has never had a stereo fitted. Its very low mileage 998 engine is very smooth and quiet and is mated to a smooth gearbox and it still feels new and taught. Performance is very brisk and this Mini feels ready to go anywhere.

The interior is a fantastic place to be and can only be described as like new. The grey seats are unmarked as is the roof liner. Its completely as it left the factory and sat inside this Mini it feels as if it could be 1988. This Mini also has rear seat belts and servo operated disc brakes.

This is a unrestored example and Minis in this preserved state are becoming increasingly sought after as the majority have been modified or restored. This Mini still has its all its original charm and has fantastic solid shell with its original vented sills, all original panels, gleaming floor pans and the boot floor looks new. Its blue up inside all four wheel arches and has been preserved very well. The paintwork presents very well with the odd age related blemish but please bear in mind its original and in a totally use, show and enjoy condition.

This Mini is fully serviced, has a no advisory MOT until February 2019 and is ready to go. Its amazing just how much attention this little gem gets out on the road and its guaranteed to make you smile.
