1984 Austin Mini City e. 1000cc. Cinnabar red. Only 51k & 2 owners. Eighties time warp.


We are very pleased to offer a wonderful eighties time warp 1984 Austin Mini City e. Finished in Cinnabar red this little gem has changed very little during its 34 year life covering only 51k and having only two previous owners in that time. It is presented in very original condition and very close to how it left the factory. 1984 was officially the last year of the very sought after ten inch wheels and centre clock dash and the City e was unique in that offered the pure basic Mini experience and echoed the early examples yet being more practical and useable on a daily basis. These Early eighties ten inch wheel examples have now become rare and in preserved state like our example are becoming very sought after.

On the road this City is great fun to drive. The engine is very smooth with brisk perfomance and the gearbox is also very precise. This is the no frills Mini driving experience and its easy to use and has fantastic handling which you will discover when pressing on through the twisty stuff. There is nothing to distract the driver, just a simple single speedo and a steering wheel what more could you want?

Our City has had an easy life and the interior is a good representation of this. The original hounds tooth trim is in very good conditon and it still boasts its original carpets. The City E also had the colour coded bottom dash rail, again similar to the early cars which looks very retro indeed. It still has its original steering wheel and virtually unmarked roof lining. Its wonderful to see an original interior as so many have been changed or modified.

This Mini also has a very soild shell and is still body coloured inside all four wheel arches,, has vented sills and appears to have all its original panels. The boot floor is still gleaming as are all four floor pans, it has it original wings and front panel and the panel gaps are as good as when it was new. The paintwork is gleaming and it presents very well and certainly gets lots of attention when out on the road and rightly so.

This City is fully serviced front to back and has just had many new parts and has a long MOT and is ready to go and be enjoyed. Hopefully its new owner will appreciate its originallity and preserve it for many years to come. It could happily sit on display at any show or just make you smile out on the open road.
