SOLD 1980 Austin Mini 1000cc. Rusett Brown. Very rare and in fantastic condition. Ready to go.


We are very pleased to offer a stunning 1980 Rusett Brown Mini 1000. My first Mini was the same colour and they have always been my favourite and these days they are very rare and sought after especially in this wonderfully preserved condition. This Mini has had a charmed life and its condition speaks for itself. Its accompanied with its original handbook and is showing 27k although this cannot be verified with the history but certainly can be by the condition.

On the road is where the fun starts. This Mini has a very healthy engine and smooth gearbox and drives very well indeed. The 998 engine is very spritely and is eager to perform. The wider Cooper S wheels not only add to the look but gives it fantastic handling and the ten inch wheels offer the pure Mini driving experience. Attention is guaranteed in this Mini aswell as lots of smiles.

The interior is also very well presneted with its original and very seventies stripey seats and single centre clock which is all thats needed. The roof lining and carpets are also very preserved as well as the swithgear and rear seat belts are a very useful addition.

This Mini really excels with its body condition. It has its original floors, sills, boot floor and rear bins and is still brown inside all four wheel arches. It has been Ziebart rust treated from new, an expensive option back then but certainly pays dividens now as it really has a timewarp shell. The paintwork gleams and the engine bay is also well detailed and this Mini really does belie its 40 year vintage.

We have fully serviced and checked this Mini and it has a long MOT and is ready to go. It is also tax and MOT exempt. This is a fantastic candidate for anybody after the unique charm and useability that this era of Mini offers.
