SOLD 1976 Austin Mini 1000cc. Mk3. Pageant Blue. Only 11k from new. Wonderful original condition.



We are very pleased to offer a real slice of the seventies, and incredibly a Mini that has only covered 11k in 44 years. One of the last of the Mk3 Minis built with all of it’s correct features and presented in a wonderfully preserved condition. It is accompanied with its original handbook, service book and various invoices including a sales receipt from 1978 when it had 10k on the clock, it was dry stored from 78 until 2012 and susbsequently recommissioned with a long and comprehensive list of new parts and has had light use since and is presneted in fine fettle and ready to be used and driven.

It is a real pleasure to drive a Classic Mini from this era that has been so well preserved. Seventies Minis offer the pure Mini driving experience and are also very useable on a daily basis. Ten inch wheels, centre binnacle and large three spoke steering wheel is all you need to get out on the open road and enjoy the way these cars make you smile. This example drives like it is just a few years old, the 998 engine is very healthy with strong oil pressure and the performance will surprise, the gearbox again, feels new and it just cannot be faulted out on the open road. It also has five nearly new Falken tyres so it handles amazingly. This is a matching numbers example complete with all its factory body tags.

The interior is total timewarp, it is as it left the factory in 1976 right down to its door seals, It has the original carpets, unmarked roof liner and switchgear, it also has the advantage of inertia reel seat belts, so it is packed with technology. In short it is one of the nicest original interiors I have seen an it is testament to the condition of this Mini.

This Mini has a very well preserved bodyshell and it has never had any welding, it has all of its original floors, sills and boot floor. Inside all four wheel arches is gleaming Pageant blue paint and the underside is spotless and body coloured, the subframe is also like new. The paintwork gleams and presents very well and is in keeping with a seventies Mini. This example will happily sit on any display stand and with this mileage is a very rare car and certainly a keeper.

We have fully serviced, checked and tuned this little gem and it will be supplied with a full MOT ready to be driven and enjoyed. It is also MOT and tax exempt.
