We are pleased to offer a very original low mileage Limited Edition British Open Classic. Only 1000 of these very classy Minis were made and they are now very rare especially in original unrestored condition. They are very distinctive finished in metallic British racing green with Minilte wheels, Tweed half leather trim and the all important full length electric sunroof. This example has only covered a documented 31k in 27 years with only two previous owners. It is accompanied with a large service history folder including previous V5’s, MOT certs and receipts and was even featured in the Mini Magazine British Open Classic buyers guide which is also included in the history which is a fantastic accolade.
On the road this Mini is very easy to drive and has that low mileage taught responsive feel. The carb fed 1275 engine is smooth and delivers plenty of power through the rev band and the gearbox feels precise and accurate. This is also one of the last Minis to have the 1275 carb engine fitted. The experience is transformed at the touch of a button when the full length sunroof electric is opened, it gives this Mini a whole new dimension and offers open top motoring. This has alsways been the reason that Open Classic’s have been sought after as they have 1275 power, classy looks and open air driving.
The interior of this Mini is very well presented and is the best Open Classic one I have seen. The Tweed half leather trim belies its years and is virtually unmarked, a testament to an easy life. It still has its original carpets and switch gear and the cream leather steering wheel is also very well preserved. It also has its original Rover Cassette player and the the all important roof lining and roof are immaculate. The boot is also very well preserved and still has its original unused spare wheel and the supplying dealer sticker is on the back window. Many Open Classics have been restored so its very refreshing to find a factory spec low mileage unrestored example.
This Open Classic has a very solid shell and has had only minor attention over the years. It still has its original front wings and front panel and I am convinced all the panels are original. It is still green inside the wheel arches and the floor pans and subframes are very good. The paintwork gleams and this Mini gets lots of attention. This Mini is fully serviced with a full MOT and is ready for some Summer fun.
