1977 Austin Mini 850cc. Harvest Gold. 45k. Matching numbers. Many new parts. Fantastic period looks.


We very pleased to offer a super slice of seventies Austin Mini 850. Finished in period Harvest gold with complimenting dark tan vinyl trim, this matching numbers example has covered only 44k in 43 years with only five previous keepers in that time. 850 Minis are now very rare and in mid seventies form are a very useable variant and fun to drive, they offer the pure Mini driving experience as it was intended. Ten inch wheels, single central binnacle and large steering wheel. This Mini still has its original dealer registration plates and original window sticker.

On the road this Mini is a real gem to drive. The original 850 engine is very willing and its performance will surprise, this Mini has just ben fitted with a stage one kit which includes a three branch Manifold and a full Maniflow side exit exhaust system, so it has a wonderful period sound. At the same time fully adjustable suspension was fitted, consisting of Hi-Lo suspension. Spax Gaz shocks and adjustable camber. This was topped with Cooper S disc brakes and a very sexy set of Minilte wheels with wider profile Falken tyres. The results are fantastic as you can see from the images. Period colour Minis are also a guarantee to draw a crowd as so many of the seventies Minis had colour changes and so few are left with there original looks.

This Mini has a very well preserved interior, the original seats are in fantastic conditon as is the original roof liner. The original steering and central speedo binnacle is all you need to get out on the road and enjoy driving this Mini.

This Mini also has a solid shell with its original wings and front panel and solid floors and boot floor. The paintwork presents very well and is virtually blemish free and belies its vintage. It could easily sit on display at any show.

This 850 has been fully serviced and has just had all new brakes, suspension work, four new tyres, and is fully serviced and tuned. It is now MOT and Tax exmept and has a long MOT so is ready to go. Seventies Mins are increasingly sought after in matching numbers form and are very hard to find these days and they are so easy to drive and enjoy.
