1979 Austin Mini 1275cc. Snapdragon yellow. Only three owners. FSH. Stunning slice of the Seventies


We are very pleased to offer a stunning 1979 Austin Mini finished in gleaming period Snapdragon Yellow with very seventies deck chair striped seats. This Mini has been in the same family most of its life so this is the first time it has been offered for sale in its 41 year history. It is accompanied with a large history file including the original bill of sale and a detailed record of maintenance through the years and previous MOT certificates to support its mileage. In the early 1990s it had a 1275 power plant upgrade so it benefits from all the useability of a seventies Mini with a nice amount of extra power. It also has its original body FE number meaning it has its original shell.

On the road this Mini drives well. Its well cared for life means it drives smoothly with sharp handling. The 1275 unit has plenty of power and the gearbox is smooth. It is also fitted with electronic ignition for added reliability. We have also fitted Hi-Lo adjustable ride height suspension so this can be adjusted if you want it to sit lower but we like the correct height. I love Minis from this era, with the centre clock binnacle , large steering wheel and ten inch wheels, they really do offer the pure Mini driving experience and amazing handling. This Mini is a drivers car on the twisty stuff with the extra power and very civilised around town.

This Mini has a very well preserved interior with its original grey stripe deck chair trim and original factory carpets. It does benefit from having rear seat belts fitted and it also has a Sony CD player. The rest is all original and has a nice preserved feel.

This Mini has a very solid shell and fortunatley it was wax injected when it was new. It has its original vented sills and body coloured floor pans and solid boot floor. The paintwork has just been re freshed so it really does gleam in the sun, and we have also fitted new bumpers, grille and uprated head lamps. It sits on a set of Special Tuning replica Miniltes and always gets lots of attention, everyone loves a yellow Mini.

We have fully serviced this Mini, it also has a years MOT and is of course Tax and MOT exempt so it is ready to go and be enjoyed.
